    I'll have to dig it out again but I believe it was a 1983 magazine.

    ...............Next up we have the reintroduction of the famed Weatherby FiberMark, a rifle developed by the company in 1983 to include a synthetic stock. At the time it was introduced, Roy Weatherby called his son’s idea nothing but an “ugly stock” (quoted now from the Weatherby book by Grits and Tom Gresham), but upon young Ed’s persistence, the older and wiser father let it go into production. Obviously, the rest is history as synthetic stocks of all types swept the market in the 1990s and into the immediate millennium.
    Apparently 1983 is the winner

    There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

    As a society we pretty much want to make almost everything smaller and/or lighter. In most instances, the change is logical.
