    My SBT with a long LOP and a solid rubber pad hits too low.
    Can a pad be ground to raise POI?

    Will making a pad thinner raise or lower POI?

    Can POI be raised by grinding at an angle?

    While you may get some advice relating to pitch and so forth, Lou, the way to raise the POI is to raise the comb, all else being kept the same. A couple of sheets of moleskin applied mostly to the top so it doesn't force your head away from looking _straight_ down the rib should at least tell you if you are on the right track, and couple more on them and you may be in business.

    Beartooth comb. I have one for one of my sons. Works pretty good. Tends to wander a little, but, for the price and not having to whittle on some wood, works good.

    Raise comb with 1/2 inch adhesive tape to almost desired height (many layers of 5" strips) Cover over with Cheekeze 1/16 " or 1/8th inch pad. OR Have a adjustable comb installed.
