Unless the nub is thick on the hop arm it won't hop very much. It'll be more consistent though. I ran it for about a month before I swapped it over to an R-hop. That was when I experimented with a hard plastic nub on the arm. I could give it so much hop on the high end that if i went to far I could jam the barrel.
In other words yes just shave the nub and rotate the bucking.
@ the OP
The R-hop will always give you more range and better accuracy btw if properly tuned. Read the forum and you'll see why.
