Default To Rowan or not to Rowan

Have a custom stock for my TX200 ordered for August manufacture and delivery from Gary Cane. I've currently opted for the standard FT fore-end. But man, can't stop thinking about how clean the Rowan adj hamster integration looks. Probably wouldn't use it all the time but would be curious to get thoughts from current users. They cost a lot - buy once, cry once but still..... decisions to make.

Thanks,
Casey

Best thing I ever did was to get a Rowan hamster.

Love mine and would not be without it.

Depending on which stock model and material (laminate?) just be aware that with a typical FT scope on top you can expect the TX rig to weigh north of 15lbs!, you might want to consider this prior to adding more weight with an adjustable forend.
Other than for extreme elevated targets it is unlikely to bring much benefit over a standard up/ down adjustable hamster (e.g, on Gary's GP stocks).
Just a thought...

The only issue is that you may need to have the fore-end modified for the tx200's standard long stroke. Switching back to a standard internals i've had to have the front end milled away into the actual metal of the rowan to clear the cocking lever.
