    If you’re just wanting to see if you like it, try getting some balsa wood it can be found at most hobby stores. Get a couple sticks in different heights like 1/8" 1/4" 3/8" you can stack them and play with different heights to see what feels best to you. We tape them on with black electrical tape and we use the pins used in sewing with the little white heads (cut off most of the pin part) and push it down into the balsa wood and use them for beads. You can go out and shoot a round with the ribs just taped on. Doing a little playing can make a would of difference if you do decide to get a rib, If I can be of any help just give me a shout.

    Good luck

    Another vote for balsa wood and tape. It teaches you a lot with minimal investment. You can also try different rib angles.

    You must also have enough comb height adjustment to play with as the higher rib will force your head more upright.
