It's the wkend & I might be able to find a Limbsaver at a 'local' Bass Pro or Cabela's. Appreciate any advice, starting with, "Are they worth $80???"
#1. This is exactly what I did. Works just as described above.Well the 80 bucks sticks in my craw some, but they really help. I have the
slip on model. I found it at WalMart of all places, but it is a true Limbsaver,
complete with logo, packaging details etc. As I remember it was less than $30,
they might still carry them. The sleeve will slip on all of my large bore Marlins.
It is not as good a fit as the fixed ones for sure. I do have to recenter the pad
sometimes after 3-4 shots, especially with heavier loads. Just takes a sec
but some might find it bothersome. It does let me comfortably shoot all my bad boys,
without having sunk a lot of money in individual pads for each. It not for everyone,
just another idea for you to consider
