    Anyone here run one? How does it compare to acrylic? I’m acquiring one through a trade.

    I ran an early ABW CWF for a few seasons, but it got replaced by a Cran Alpha

    I have an Alpha a pothole and an acrylic CWF. This opportunity came up and I decided to jump on it.

    ABW is probably my fav wopd as it has a good crispness but a unique clankiness as well. Will not be as crisp and snappy as an acrylic tone but you aren't losing anything.

    Wood barrel with acrylic insert is my favorite setup.

    Remember, tune up and a good clean and buff are free of charge. Just cover return shipping.

    That is the call I hope to get made if I luck out and get in on the book opening this go round.
    ABW is my favorite,got a Pothole and a gen 3 Digger in it that get hunted a lot, and to add a ABW CWF to the mix would round out the ABW rope.

    I've got an earlier Blackwood CWF (998) that's probably my favorite RM to run of mine. Ordered without spit grooves.

    I had my option between these two. Obviously took the ABW.

    Got the call today. This sucker is a runner. I love it. I can’t tell the name of the signature on it. It’s #1012 as well.
