    So I just got a new free floating rail and wondering if the rail covers people use are personal preference, or are there ones that are cheap and worthless or ones that are better?

    I like the Noveske from the picture looks good, but are there others I should highly consider?

    I have and have tried a couple different kinds.

    I like the "ladder" covers. They are small. Dont add bulk to the rail diameter. Simple. Function.

    So i can use the ladder on the lower/upper, but would you run something on the sides?

    It depends on what your goal is.

    For me rails are "sharp" so I keep them mostly or all covered depending on the gun and set up. Top is usually less of an issue then bottom and sides since you never really grab by the top.
