    I have to second ntx...teds are top notch and he is just a awesome person to talk to. I just ordered some stuff from him and he thought he messed up a body so without question he sent another. He has my business!

  6. I'm a big fan of Tony's as well. Excellent detail and fits everytime.

    smalliestalker and a river runs through it.

    X2 for sure.

    NOT having to deal with pitting on each bill is one nice difference. The packaging preventing chips on the mandibles is quite professional too.

    Note: The photos are NOT of Ted Weyenberg's work. I still had a couple from Before I switched to TW and Page Nethercutt's heads and bodies.

    One of the biggest reasons I really like Ted Weyenberg heads is because the heads are made to where you can stick a pin in them if you need to. I personally don't know of another head that allows you to do that. Its really nice especially when adjusting around the eyes. They are also a very clean and lightweight head.

    Ted has by far the best heads and bodies I have used!
  11. I've been jumping around but mostly have been using Cory's. Thanks for the info on Ted's heads. I'm going to try them. When Newmeyer came out with heads I was using them for a while because the foam core would take pins. I liked that feature. So I was interested when someone mentioned these heads would accept pins.

    Tony Finazzo heads are the worse IMO.

    I switched to pages heads and bodies from head quarters taxidermy. Cant beat the price and quality. I will try teds with my next batch of birds. Stay away from research mannikins heads cost to much and are not that good, I hade a couple heads that were so thin you can see threw it and some were holes. This is were the upper bill over lapped the lower bill.

    Well maybe you would like to say who makes the best in your opinion as well. That's kinda what the Topic is about.
  16. Mother Nature first, taxidermists second.

  19. I have used both Ted's and Tony's, both are good but I personally like Ted's because of the pinning capabilities. Just my preference.

    When I took my class they had a lot of different ones there. After working with a few and seeing quite a few I really like Teds. Its easy to use the detail it top notch. Its all I will use unless he does not carry one. I just got a few of Pages for the ruddys I have. One thing I notice is the eyebrows are really built up for a salt water bird and I do not think you can get a pin in one.
