I have always heard that people were unhappy with the store bought cheek peices. They say that the foam is too soft and something about the laces is not right. Then it came to me one day, a perfect homemade cheek peice! [thinking] I can tell you that it works super, its quick detachable (like my scope) and its almost free. forget about it being cheap, it just works great and I have it on a $3000 rifle system. Good luck.
