I like "Wood" for it's warmth, feel, and of course it's look.
I like "Laminates" for their strength and woodlike characteristics; but I do like their look too.
I like "Fiberglass" when they are made from a quality mfg for their unreal strength and impervious to the elements nature.

Fiberglass composite. Darn near impossible to break and relatively light.

Mostly like the carefreeness of synthetics, but still like the beauty of a nicely grained wood stock. For hunting rigs, synthetics I think are the way to go.

I want to remove the wood stock from my CZ 550. I want to go replace it with a good synthetic stock and just store away the wood one.

McMillan will make you a really nice stock for the CZ 550, but it's not going to be cheap!

Changing the stock out could result in the need to bed it properly too. Won't know really until you shoot a few groups from it though. I'm with Buzz on the "Mc." stocks though...

Synthetics are the best for hunting.


But wood is tons more appealing to the eye.

Actually I'm thinking of getting a Duracoat finish on an Abolt .270, I picked up recently, and seeing how I like that finish.
