i like boards for personal reasons it soaks up some grease and when you take coons off of boards it gives the appearence i think of a more fuller fur.boards are thicker then wire so there is alil more room inside for the fur to fluff up at the cut out window.

I've used wire for years then I was talked into using basswood stretchers. It does make a better pelt and the auction houses like it as well with the exception of muskrat. Most places like wire for muskrat.
