I think I will fly an imprint in the future purely to see the difference with my own eyes in a bird I moulded, but I'm glad I followed advice to fly a PR bird first.

Cant answer your poll untill I've flown both and had the best from both.
What ya think now steve?

I flew a good p/r Goshawk and I think I'm flying something that will be come an outstanding imprint Goshawk.

The raw material dont matter, give it 100% and the results will be worth the effort in my opinion.

If you dont mind noise fly an imprint, if you hate noise fly parent reared.
