Is there any advantage of using a fiberglass fleshing beam over a wooded one? I'm looking for a new one since the one I have has the nose cut off. Any suggestions as to where to get one would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Wood beams tend to get knicks in them. I have a wood beam and love it, but I was looking at those fiberglass beams myself.

Does anyone have a fiberglass beam and if so, how good is it.

New fleshing beam is on my "have to have' list before next season rolls around ( Oct.15 for Reds and Greys, Stinkies, & 'Yotes, Nov.15 for the rest). My fur buyer docked me a little on 'Coons & Grinners for not having enough fat scraped off. I don't think I did too bad on prices, but could have been better.

3- Muskrats, put-up @ $7.75 ea.
2- 'Coons, about 14-15 lbs. ea., put-up @ $8.00 ea.
2- Lg. Grinners, put-up @ $1.75 ea.
2- Med. Grinners, put-up @ $2.50 ea.
1- 'Coon, 19 lbs., in-the-round @ $ 12.00
1- Beaver, 28 lbs., in-the-round @ $ 15.00

Let me know if I did okay, or if I got hosed !
