My are at the same moisture content. I think that's about as low as you're going to get from my experience. I think you're ready to put the finish on too. I'm going to wait until the net comes in before cutting and gluing mine so I get a good fit between the net and the frame.

13' Ayu, 12' Yamame, 11' with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

I think it is a good idea to have the mesh before cutting it. It's nice to have a well fit mesh that is not sagging or anything, and I think the best way is to have it in your hand first. I hope we can receive it soon, I only have 1 mesh myself and need 3 more.
