I do prefer the look of the traditional bow, and it's what I bought, but solely off cost. I have the same running surface as the rz2, but it was 20k cheaper(for me in my deal) to buy the traditional bow. tradeoff is a loss of 400lbs of hidden nose weight that I wish I had.
one thing you can say about pickleforks are the ability for most to hide more weight/gear.

brand bias aside, I'd give it to either tige or the supra sa. worst has to go to mastercraft. that new x got hit with a fugly stick.
