    I'm suprised I haven't seen more talk or pictures being posted of these forms being used. I got turned onto these forms a few years ago at our state show because most of the top guys in the masters and winning were all on these forms so I figured why not try em out they look really good. Haven't looked back since. They are continually expanding their line of forms and have most all size options in semi-sneak and semi upright as well as upright offset, upright wall ped, and a new release on an offest sneak form that I think will have an expaned line this year some time.

    These forms mount up so easy and things fall into place on these forms so the accuracy is amazing. This line was sculpted from not just one deer in a given size or by one sculptor but rather a collaboration of a few sculptorsusing a group of measurements taken on many deer over a long period of time to get averages for different size deer to produce a head and manikin that most any given deer in that size range should fit easily and accurately. These forms have saved me a ton of time in not having to alter the heads to fit my liking, save on time in setting the antlers, save on materials on skull plate set, and just overall time in speed of mounting the head with how easy everything goes together the head. Also the one thing that really stands out to me about these forms is when setting the eyes and ears the sculpting work goes so much quicker and seems easier compaired to other forms. Only thing I can think of for this reason is that they are that accurate in the anatomy that it makes things go together much smoother. If you haven't taken a chance to try these forms out you really need to do yourself and your buisiness a favor and mount a couple on these forms.

    Recieved this email from them this week. So if you are at Worlds and aren't familiar with their forms or have given them a try stop by their booth to check out their great products and top of the line forms!

    I keep hearing everyone raving about the OTS forms. I finally found one that fit a deer here and mounted it up. I dont like them any better than Matuskas. I sure as heck wont switch because Matuska is next day delivery and they are in the Speedy delivery area.

    Same here I've mounted a couple and the heads do fit nice but they seem a bit short and stout in the neck and shoulder. Nicer form than most out there and I believe them and Matuskas are right in line with eachother but I like the Tuskas a bit more in ease of assembly plus the size availablity and quick service is awesome. Even though OTS is coming to Speedee country I doubt I will use much of their forms as the size and selection is so limited not to mention 30-40% of the deer I get in are 7 3/4 to 8" noses. For the guys who love OTS forms if your deer don't fit theirs you need to be ordering the CCs.
