    Thinking of buying a 90T high rib. Can anyone tell me of any significant difference between high and low rib models? I know high rib is adjustable, but beyond that?
    Had a low rib years ago, regretted selling it ever since.

    Comments welcome

    Both guns are fairly equal with regards to POI. The high rib IS adjustable, so you'll get 50/50 to 70/30 on the POI.

    The high rib is 1/2" higher, thus the comb is also 1/2" higher.

    Mechanically, they are the same.

    The high rib gun is very well suited for the shooter that likes to stand a little "taller" with their shooting posture.

    Also the high rib helps with heat mirage in the summer.

    I couldn't find a high rib 90T so I did the next best thing and got an HPI add-on.
    Works great and it does make it easier to stand tall. It's not adjustable but then I didn't what the gun to shoot any different POI, just wanted to lift my cheek up a little.

    I would agree with Doug and spoke to him before purchasing a High Rib 90-T from a gentleman off this site last week.I needed my head more erect. Doug was very helpful,Thanks again Doug I will have it to you for Nickle plating soon. Coming from Sporting clays and only having shot a limited amount of trap, guys at the club have been telling me I was shooting to late. I was hitting them shooting late and I kept telling them I can not shoot until I see what I need to see. I was shooting the same scores with an unmounted gun. My friend bought a low rib 90-T and we were shooting that and I was shooting them a little faster and making dust. I was loaned a high rib 90-T and it was like the light came on. I am shooting the target way faster because with my head buried behind the receiver on my sporting guns (K-80 and 391) I was having trouble seeing the target soon enough. With my head more erect I can see the target way faster and it makes it seem way easier to focus on the target and still be aware of the muzzle with the gun shooting higher. I also tend to get tender on my cheek which is way less with my head upright. I am 180 lbs 6ft with I would say an average neck length. I hope this was helpful, sorry for the long post.
