    I shoot a mid high rib and find it my timing is better than a high or low rib. You will find timing is everything with any rib higher than flat. As to dealers, they are limited and regional. Go to the Ljutic web site to find the one nearest you. For the money you are going to spend, if you are buying new, you would be served to have a fitted gun. Best of luck in your pursuit.

    I'm shooting the new high ajustable rib model for some 4 months now. it's the best ljutic I've owned. one touch rib is the best on the market. fit and finish is super. gun is soft shooting and swings great. doc.

    Smoke-um, I had one of those high adjustable ribs that doc boc likes so well. I could shoot it pretty good on handicap, but I never could shoot what I call decent scores on 16s with it.

    So I traded it off for a non-adjustable Pro3 with a medium rib and both my handicap and my 16 yard scores have improved with it.

    As for the adaptability of the Ljutic adjustable rib, it is okay, but I really didn't see the need for it once I got it adjusted to shoot where I wanted it to shoot.

    Different strokes for different folks. Try to shoot one or the other before you buy.....if you can.

    That said, you can't go wrong buying a Ljutic.

    I lusted after them for 30 years before I bought one. What was I thinking. Should have bit the bullet and bought it way back then.

    Good Luck and hope I helped a little bit.

    Hauxfan!

    Someone that I shoot with at the Indiana gun club has sent his black diamond back once for a separated rib and a second time for what I think was the same reason. Another friend has a blck diamond and hasn't had a single problem. That's guns.
