Default McKenzie mounts

I dropped off my 10 pointer tonight .
I,m a little nervous using a new taxidermist .
My guy just had back sergury....
I wanted something different , at least of what I have now.
I have a semi sneak left , semi sneak right and a semi upright left .
I decided on the McKenzie 64U Semi sneak , Up , with right sweep .
Anyone have theres mounted on these ??
I just read a few post abought the heads on the skinny side ??
Will I be ok with this or should I go with another mount ??
Should I go with the Joe Meder head up off set instead ??
My deer lost a ton of weight , he dressed out at 162 but looked like a 190 to 200 lb. deer .
He is a Norther NY Deer...
I like the head up and sweep .
My 10 pointer has a lot of tine and beam length , but lacks a little in width ,, So I want more of a side veiw .
Also herd McKenzie bought most companies out ????
Pics please, Thanks...

Tracker, no worries on that form. I've used it several times on customers, and my own. Its personally my favorite form right now. I love how the head is up, it really shows off the antlers well. The form fits northern bucks well, never heard of the head being too small. You should like it. McKenzie makes some the best forms out there, and I've used a few different brands over the yrs.

Default Thanks for the info...

After looking all over the net and tossing and turning all night .
I decided to stay with the 6400 series heads up mount .
I havent seen one in person , so many people go with the upright or semi sneak left or right now .
I do like the new wall pedistle mount to but this 64U caught my eye ,
I think he will look great ,
I also decide3d to go with the driftwood and brush instead of a back board this time ..4 to 6 months , to get him back .
Well I have 3 others on the wall now but cant wait to get him back ...

I like the form, no major complaints. I like the look and shape of the shoulders and brisket area, but it is a bit oversized. The faces of the smaller deer in this series are a bit narrow, but mount up fine. Overall I like it, and have mounted on it several times.

I like the 64U, I also like the 64D, both are my favorite forms of McKenzie. My next one will be the VanDyke's full turn around specialty pose.

I believe this is the 64U....
This was a 200+lb NY buck taken back in 08
