Funny. For years people claimed that the rolling wobble was due to their 'parabolic' taper. I argued that it was because they are mass produced junk.
Never hit with a SW that impressed me at all.
They are not mass produced.
If they were, they'd sell another 100 a year
The taper does exaggerate the warp because the joint end does not hug the cloth when rolled.
There's a gap between the joint end and the cloth.
The bottom of the forearm is very thick.
A coca cola bottle would the exaggerated shape of the butt ( front end ).
Biggest problem with SW is they are made in Las Vegas
If they moved to California a few miles from the ocean and the valleys, the shop would be in a more moderate climate.
It will be in between a dry and wet climate.
They don't core their butts because Franklin never did that and it wasn't that commonly done then.
