What does "X" Grade mean?
This means that each block of wood has been individually tested and qualified by Boyds!
Grading of Claro, Walnut and Maple will be determined by the % of figure from the pistol grip to the recoil pad when wood is in the block stage.
X Grade = 25-50%
XX Grade = 50-75%
Formula for Grading: If side 1 contains 100% figure and side 2 contains 25% figure, the result is 125% total for the 2 sides. 125/2 = 62.5% = XX Grade.
