    I am new to trapshooting, I have been reading the forum at least everyother day.
    I was wondering why do you need a large riser under the vent rib?

    Seems if you know your gun and how it shoots, why so much vent hight?

    Just wondering, thanks

    Larry.

    longshotlab, I put a high rib on my gun to keep my head more upright. Way more comfortable. Helps over the long run. Good luck. Chuck Hrosik

    It helps in keeping from raising your head off the stock. More comfortabloe, they have been around for years, more widely accepted in the past few years, and Mfgrs have risen to the occasion.

    Adjustable high rib is better yet.

    I read a technical explanation for the advantages of an upright head, besides maintaining the cheek in contact with the comb during the swing. I'm sure many here know this, but it has to do with using the center portion of the eye which provides more acuity than looking out of the top of your eye when your head is tilted forward.
