Thread: Roe head measurement at CLA

  1. #1

    Roe head measurement at CLA

    I have a Roe head that I think may make a medal, over 90 days drying, weighs 520gr (uncut). Thinking of taking it to the CLA on friday. I am a BASC member, should I get it measured at BASC (free) or CIC or both? Should the measurement at BASC and CIC yield the same results? Which provides the nicer medal? Which would you choose if the cost didn't matter?

    Details of the head are in this thread:

    Its your decision, the main advantage of BASC is you don't need to wait 90 days, BASC also have a platinum medal for high scoring heads, scoring will produce similar but not exact results.

    The main disadvantage BASC medals are a British award and really only recognized here, where as CIC is long established and international and recognized just about everywhere.

    For me it would be CIC every time.

    CIC is the national and international standard and is recognised across most if not all of the world. BASC is new to the scene and is not as well established and cannot re produce the CIC medal that is awarded, so therefore they have their own medal I believe.

    I had all three medal heads Gold and Silver Roe and Gold Muntjac measured this year with a CIC measurer at very little cost. I think the medal if you want one is 15.

    At that dry weight you will probably get a Silver medal.
