I agree. I must admit that I was a little leery when I purchased a custom 338 Edge with a thumbhole stock. But I like it.
A side story: A buddy that I shoot with told me that he absolutely hated thumbhole stocks and couldn't believe I bought one. Well when I let him shoot my EDGE I noticed his thumb in the thumbhole. After about 5 rounds I called him on it and he just grinned and said "Not too bad."
It's all personal preference in the end......but give one a try. That's the only way you will know for yourself.
