You are quite right Jon. I have been using a 65mm dia kneeling roll for a while now and even part filled with poly beans if I move too far forwards the toe of my (size 8) rear foot lifts off the floor and I become less stable and much less comfortable. It is a matter of finding the right position to keep three points of contact. In the right position the kneeling roll makes kneelers a lot less painful, so I can concentrate on the shot, not the discomfort in my right leg / foot.

Might be something to do with tearing me ligaments and busted tibea and fibea 4 places 37 years ago, still got a limp.

Other parts taking its toll last 4 years from the abuse back then, same pressure/weight as any other time on hips.

Sounds like a crunching bike accident, or did you just upset the wife?  :grin:

Onwards and upwards, at least a stick is getting back to some sort of normality. Don't forget that you've adapted over the years to having one leg longer than the other so that will take time to correct.
