    Essentially it's all about heads up shooting. Having your head in an erect position vs. being down in a flat rib gun that may have more drop in the stock. Plus, you have more latitude with POI adjustment. I know alot of guys have went to a parallel comb and the high rib. I won't say it's a fad, but it is certainly a trend in the sporting game. Only time will tell if it's here to stay.

    I really like mine. I shoot sporting clays. Seems like I see the targets better. The first time I picked one up at a dealer I saw the ramp and wondered if I would see the high rib as being in the way so I did not buy one for a year. Then I finally bought one and now I don't see the rib at all just the targets. Mine swings very smooth and the stock configuration is very comfortable.

    Most of us slightly cant our guns and with the Prosporter, the cant will become more noticeable and a distraction.....

    It is a fad....just like the 34" barrels a few years ago....

    This is their mid rib version. It is between the original low rib and the high rib Trap Special.I am not a fan of the Trap Special, it feels like a club to me and waaaaay too high for my short neck.I absolutely love the mid rib Pro Sporter. It swings just like the low rib but with a little more heads up position. It can also be had in a trap combo configuration, called the ACS combo.

    I had the ProSporter in 32" barrel configuration for about 2 years....shot sporting clays with it. It does allow you a more heads up position, which for my long neck, helps. I have never been a fan of flat ribbed guns but recently acquired a flat rib Perazzi and with the stock dimensions it has, I don't seem to have that much of an issue with the flat rib.
