Why is EB Bobtail more rounded than NHC?

    Hi,

    I just noticed that Browns Bobtail is slightly more rounded and seems better integrated with the MSH than NHC. Why is this? I thought NHC was using the patented EB Bobtail in the build of their Talon II. Also, is Wilson's "bobtail" more like EB or NHC? Anyone have a preference?

    Thanks

    MSH may be the same, but the cutting/blending of the frame is likely what you're seeing, and certainly can vary.

    All personal preference, but based on Quack's pics, I'll choose EB for bob's.

    Different parts, different manufacturers.

    I actually like the NHC more than the others.
