I encourage you to read Dr. Andrew Jones's book.

Generally, yes. The better you point, the tighter the pattern you want.

He’s not asking tight. He’s asking high.

Is there research or any general sense that as you improve on average you want a higher pattern?

if that is so, what would be the aberage among AA shooters as aan example?
No absolutes.

The best of the best have shot:

Flat guns

Bent guns

Bottom notch on front of barrel guns

Jacked stocks

Everything in-between.

I started out with approximately a 60/40 pattern and a mod choke at 16 yards 5 years ago, 2 years ago i was up to 90/10 and full choke. I am not a super star by no stretch of the imagination but am AA singles shooter. So for me yes I went higher and tighter as I improved. but i will not shoot a higher pattern than where i am.

My son had a bt99 when he started as a beginner at 11 years old and for for a decade and three guns his poi has stayed the same.
As for me.
Started trap in my 40s and learned to shoot with a flat poi and after a decade of shooting and getting punched to the fence my poi ended up just a bit higher than his.
I changed from rib all the way up to rib all the way down for singles and handicap. Doubles is set up a bit flatter for the flattening out second shot.
If you shoot trap and break them on the way up 8 to 12 inches high would probably suit the average AA shooter.

I honestly had not thought about adjusting the rib moving from singles to doubles, I am shooting higher poi than I ever have, I like it but this gun and I dont know each other yet.

i thought moving the pattern up would give me a better opportunity to improve over time.

Generally speaking, many do start to prefer higher, but it’s not a universal rule. I did. Went from 60/40 D class, peaked at A with mostly mod choke. Now shoot full and 90/10, AA. It does make it easier for handicap. Sometimes I wish I had a little more adjustment for the rib for caps, as I like how it shoots for singles but think it could stand more for caps.
