Personally i think they help, especially if new to the sport or perhaps just not very good at disaplines.
Unfortunatley, there has not been a Cow the same shape as me so I have vever really had one that fits100% but my current one was closer than others.
Top service from Intershoot.
I went from say 1, maybe 2 standers on a good day (ex 4) to 3 or 4. so yes, it made a difference on standers.
It also helps on kneelers.
I also used it done up at Gp1 due to the uncomftable shooting position in the field, it helped a bit there too. I usually shoot with it open for sitters though.
I know slimmer shooters who have used it done up in the sitting position and again reported to be far more stable
Of those "top shooters" not usuing them, I think its a case of adapting to their more padded jackets? I suspect many of the top shooters could drop the Gimp coat and switch to padded and eventually shoot just as well. On the days I have forgot my jacket at club, it has not taken me long to adapt and nearly do as well.
If your going to gp5 Bisley, its an idea to pop into Lord Fauntleroy centre and have a look. Take the credit card but some good jackets inthere for around £120?
