    "Better" is a personal judgment. Some like unsingles and others have difficulty shooting them due to their high ribs.

    With that said, the benefits of an unsingle is their reduced barrel rise during recoil. (The upper heel of the stock is much closer to the axis of the bore, which reduces barrel rise.) Basically, a rib replaces the top barrel in an over/under configuration. The top barrel is replaced by a tall rib.

    The benefit of the position of the one barrel on an unsingle is the reason shooters fire the bottom barrel first when using an over & under - less barrel rise.

    Targets can be seen through the rib with the peripheral vision of the off eye -by some shooters.

    Heat waves rising from the barrel during a day of shooting in hot sun are less likely to be a visual distraction with an unsingle. So will be the knowledge that the heat waves will disappear as soon as the swing begins, however.

    Top singles on the other hand, offer a more unified sighting plane because the rib is closer to the barrel.

    The main comparative disadvantages of top singles is that there are more heat waves off the barrel and more barrel rise during recoil. Barrel rise is likely to be a problem only if the stock does not fit the shooter or if an incorrect shooting form is used.

    It would be best to shoot an unsingle before buying one. There is no sure way to tell how comfortable you will be shooting one.
