I plunked down my deposit on a lefty Phiga Tiger a few weeks ago. I did some homework and talked to owners, looked at photos and videos. Phil will customize the build to get you what you want. Part of me is an Irwin Tiger purist (and has been for 30+ years)- but I do like the look of the Phiga Tiger. I have seen comments posted about concerns, but consider that he's been evolving his work and design for a decade or more- some of the photos posted were either earlier designs or built to meet customer requests. Email communication with Phil has been very good so far. Planning on doing my own electronics- just because I can and I like doing that part. (I'll be in touch for the buffer Waldo!). The other possibilities are very, very nice (Moriority, Resurection, Alembic, Lieber), but way out of my price range and practicality (and cost/benefit for my ability
). So next fall I'll let you know how it all worked out. Until then the photos on my wallpaper will have to do.
