So I go straight to the point ...

I want to buy a new stock for my new XS7 and I'm undecided between this and that.

My indecision comes from the fact that I would like to know which one is the heaviest.

Can you help me?

Thank! :wavey:

You do realize that the only difference in your links is the color, yes???

They will weigh the same....

Are you sure?
From what i understand change the wood in the laminate structure.
One is "PEPPER LAMINATE" and the other "NUTMEG LAMINATE"
then since each wood has its specific weigth i dont think are equal to the gram :wink:

I may be wrong, but since in the description it talks about two different essences
and not just simply a different coloring, I don't know ... therefore, I ask you this.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the different laminate colors were all the same wood, just dyed differently... If you notice the "grain" all looks the same, regardless of color (obviously except for the real walnut stocks)

the 1st link says this about weight:

"The Weight Is Approximately 2.8 Lbs. "

the second link says this

"The Weight Is Approximately 2.8 Lbs. "

If you're worried about weight then you should probably stick with the synthetic stock since I'm pretty sure it's lighter than the wood/laminate stocks. As far as laminates go, just pick whichever one you find most attractive and don't worry about it.

Here's the website for the people that make the laminate for Boyds.
Rutland Plywood: High Quality Laminated Hardwood and Specialty Plywood


this is the specific product they use

Ooops! :flute:
You have are all right!
I caught a crab, a big one crab!!!:banghead:
I had not noticed that there was also specified the weight in the details,
probably because I gave it a quick look and did not notice the weight in pounds.
I Ask solemnly apologize to all of you!:adore:
Now I proceed to the order and then impatiently await the arrival of the new stock.:biggrin:

Best regards to all!:wavey:
