Couldn't have said it better. THe Xtrema has a synthetic. My Wingmaster has a wood stock and will always have a wood stock. There aren't many things prettier than a good wood stock. :thumbsup:Webfoot12 said:I like the synthetic look for my duck gun. It reflects less light and I'm not constantly worried that I'm going to scratch it. However, I like the glossy wood finish on my upland guns. I'm sometimes careless with my duck gun in the boat. It has taken a beeting.
