Good luck guys with your new mambas, wish I could be there. Finishing up my Monarch and starting my new mamba. Should always have a back up.

Keith, I am there for you, that's what friends are for.

Take Care

Start at 6.5" (or 5.75" up from the trailing edge according to Johnathan ) and inch it back to your liking.

Oh yeah, I forgot to ask about that while I was there! Maybe I'll swing by again tomorrow, if you'll be around?
