Hey Bob, I have decided to do the AdVance sling (Frb.22nd) made by the same company that makes the AUS. Not sure how old you are but I did not want to do that at 44 years old. I hope the sling will give me the improvement I am looking for. I can always do the AUS at a later date if needed. Please let us know how things go.
