This is my coyote gun. I will be adding one to my antelope/deer gun also.
I like it so much I just became a dealer!

I do exactly the same thing in my business, I do a first article test on a product (in other words I use one myself in a real life situation, under less than optimum conditions) and if it meets my expectations, I become a dealer for that product as well.
First hand experience always outweighs conjecture....
Besides, if you believe in a product you offer, it's so much easier to sell because it usually sells itself.
Yes, I use my Karsten Cheek in the field for shooting. Keeps my cheek firmly in place and allows me to control the eye relief on my scope much better shooting offhand. It gets removed for the bench. Just gets in the way.
I have mine marked with a paint marker at the respective settings (cheek piece height and cant) for myself and my son. That way, it's readily settable for either of us.
