I think the softest is the Limbsaver (also sold under the Remington brand as the R-3). They work well, but they are sticky and pick up lint, dog hair, pine needles, etc. One even started melting on me (though the factory replaced it). After a while they just look like crap, but they work.

Kick-eez is probably the best overall. They are fairly soft and hold up well.

The Pachmayr Triple Magnum is the softest shooting. It is so soft that it comes with a rest button that you slip into the top screw hole so the pad is not ruined from sitting in the safe or gun rack.

I've only tried the Kick Eez Rocker (601) but so far I really like it. Being barrel chested this pad effectively changes the pitch to relieve point (toe) pressure. Pad stays secure on shoulder. No wear problems so far. Seems to soften felt recoil. Marc

I installed a Goey pad on my wifes gun. What a B!t$h to sand. Anyway, the pad was so soft the comb was sliding on her face causing her to start flinching. We ended up switching to a Kick-Ezz. The Kick-Ezz is more firm, and the wife is happy.

I have used both concave and convex Goey pads. When I had them on my gun I thought they were the best. I now use a concave Kick-Eez and I think it is the best. When I change again, I will probably try a Pachmayr Triple Magnum. If I do, I will probably think it is the best.

The one that enables yoy to mount the gun consistantly. For me its a Kick-ezz rocker style. If it doesn't fit recoil doesn't mean a thing.

For length of life and recoil absorbtion, I prefer a Pachmayer Decelerator or a Kick-eez. A limbsaver is softer, but a bitch to work with. I did one and figured out how to sand it. Didn't turn out too bad for the first one.A Gooey pad is even softer, but doesn't last long. I usually go with the best available that Gander Mtn. or Cabelas has on the sale rack. If you keep your eyes open, you can find some pretty good deals.

For hunting I use the Hi-Viz X-Coil pad. About 5 years ago I bought several cases of 1300 fps AA Sporting Clays Loads at a good price. I am now using them up on doves. I hunt for 10-15 days straight each dove season. The X-Coil pad has made using these loads a pleasure to shoot in a Benelli Montefeltro and a Browning Twelvette Double Auto.

tigman46- The convex shape (rocker style) did not result in a mounting problem for me when I used one. But, most of us should practice mounting our guns more frequently. A consistent mount is important but it is also something we do not practice much. As a favor to me, today mount your gun 15 times and let me know how your arms feel. You might be very surprised. If you can get into the habit of practice mounting, then you can fuss at me for not doing something I know I should do.

I had a nodified trap pad on my Infinity #229 with the standard rib, it was ok, but when I got Infinity #244 it cam with the rocker pad. Now #244 has the high ultra rib & when combined with the rocker--The fit is much better than the modified trap. I put a rocker on my #229 & change the rib between guns. Just waiting for Dennis to make me another ultra rib for my #229. With a high rib gun , the rocker works for me.

Something I've been doing for quite a while is to grind the back of the XLT pad into the shape of the modified kick Eez pad. Gives the nice comfortable mount and the best recoil reduction available. Limbsaver is close but a bitch to work with. My guess is the vast majority here have never tried this pad.

And unlike the Kick Eez---it wears and wears for a long time-- without falling apart.! Phil S.

I won't argue as to which is the best but I can tell you that the most popular pad, sold in my shop, is the Kick-eez at least 10 to one. I personally use a Kick-eez 300 series pad on all of my guns.

RickN : I still think the Seehase pads are the best as far as taking the kick out of a gun you can add the rubber strips to the slots to firm it up to shoot that elephant gun I have had the same pads for over 20 years and are still as flexible as ever they don't get hard and brittle either.

They sort of work like a griggs pad when ever you shoot then it seems to push downward away from your face. Or at least that what it seems to me.

Im sure some one has some extra ones laying around but probably take awhile to find though.

Independent testing by a qualified testing labratory has shown that Kick-Eez is by far the most efficient at reducing recoil when compared to the Decelerator, Hiviz, or Limbsaver brands.

Interesting chart, but it does not reflect what I've found. I had Kick-Eez pads on my Ruger Red Labels (four guns). They looked very nice. Problem was; after two rounds of trap, shooting Nitro 27 loads, my shoulder would be tender, and any shooting after those rounds was painful. I removed the K-E from one gun and replaced it with a LimbSaver. I could then shoot 6+ rounds with no discomfort. I replaced all the K-E pads, on all my trap guns, with L-S pads, including the stock pad on my 870SP duck gun. What a difference THAT made! On my Gold Hunter (syn stock)duck gun, I couldn't find a L-S pad to fit, but the Hi-Vis X-Coil made one, so I put it on. It WORKS, but is a bit sticky.

My vote for best pad; LimbSaver, with X-Coil a close second.

You want graphic illustration of which pad is softer; stick your thumb in a Kick-Eez, then stick it in a LimbSaver.

K-E pads look great, are easy to grind, and last forever (it seems), but they don't soften recoil like some others.

One thing that has me questioning that chart is that NO usuable pad cab absorb 98% of recoil. Something is fishy there...........

That chart was using their new "dual action" pad. I shot a new high rib sporting gun from Kolar last week and I was really impressed with the pad. I think it was the new Kick-Eez. I called Kolar to find out but I was so busy we just kept playing phone tag.............Rich

Interesting graph. code5coupe- The pad could have absorbed 98% of the energy that was applied to it during the tests but I do not know how much energy was applies. I am certain that it was not the amount of energy that is applied to our shoulders when we shoot. I am more confused by the fact that the lab apparently did three different tests but only gave a single set of results. The chart looks more like an advertisement than test results. But, I like my Kick Eez pad and I am very thankful it is behind my PFS.

I would also be interested in who commissioned the test. Some experimental methodology can be biased.

Was I the only one that noticed the Trap Dude pad was missing from this test?

Ask yourself why this is?

No pad absorbs recoil like a gooey pad. When it is crushed by recoil it returns to it's original shape slowly.

Next time you see Leo Harrison III ask him why he shoots the pad Trapdude made especially for him.

Ask Jerry Parr why he uses a Trapdude pad?

I used one to win the doubles in '01 and the Champion of Champions in '96.

Harlan Campbell and Daro Handy have used this pad.

If you as a new shooter have not had I chance to try one I will send one to you for trial. If you like it, keep it. If not send it back. It's that simple.

Some other target shooters who use Trapdude pads are Todd Bender,Paul Newman, and Gil Ash.

I have used Trap Dude pads and they are very good. My only problem with then (this could be only my problem) was that they tended to get dirty fast due to the somewhat sticky surface. This then left a black mark on my shooting vests and my wife complained that they were difficult to clean. Again, this could be my problem. I seem to have the ability to collect dirt when everyone else stays clean.

It is odd that this fine recoil pad was omitted from the so called test.

The trapdude pad has evolved through 8 different mixtures. Each one had good and bad trends. We tried to replace as many as we could but we realized as soft as it is it will not last more than two years. And then only if it is cared for by not contacting gun solvent or crushed by the guns weight all winter in your safe.

While making it softer it will not last long. Everything has a trade off.

In my last post I said if you like the pad you can keep it. I must add that you must send a check or we would not be in business very long.

Thanks for your time to read this.

I used kick-eez for years and liked them. Then I tried the Gooey pads and liked them better. In my opinion the felt recoil is much less with the Gooey.

The "don't last or don't hold up" argument is dumb. They will last for a couple of years and if you can't afford fifty bucks every two years then you shouldn't be shooting at all.

I am VERY recoil sensitive after a 1/2 million shots..LOL! I can say without question the Gooey Pad reduces felt recoil better than any other pad. I'll also add I find the Kick Eze the least effective in my opinion. Much firmer. I agree the Gooey will NOT last as long as the other pads..I get roughly 10-15 thousand out of my Gooey. With what I spend on a season of shooting, I find buying an extra pad inconsequential considering the rewards of high scores that come with additional comfort and staying in the gun. I will not shoot with anything other than a Gooey....Jerry

I have a problem with recoil in that I have arthritis in my joints and feel the effects of recoil IN my shoulder the next day, not so much ON my shoulder while shooting. I used Gooeys for several years and, yes, everything seems to stick to them and they don't last as long as other brands. But I always felt they absorbed more recoil.

Three or four years ago, I decided to conduct an unscientific recoil pad test and asked all the major players in the pad business to send me a pad. I then assembled five shooting buddies and had them shoot 10 targets with their guns as they were set up. Then they changing pads, shot 10 targets with each one and told me how each pad compared with the rest on their guns. Finally, they all shot the same gun - mine, which none of them had shot during the first part of the test - with the different pads on it. Everyone used their own shells so that recoil-affecting factor was a constant for each person.

The winner by a squeaker of a margin was the Gooey but everyone felt the little extra recoil absorption it offered wasn't worth the trade-off of faster wear and dirt, paint from gun racks and everything else sticking to them. Had none of them ever experienced the negative traits of the Gooey, it would have been the favorite. But ironically, all of them had at least tried one over the years and none of them were using one at the time.

Tied for second right behind the Gooey were the Kick-Eez, Terminator, Limbsaver and Decelerator. The rest were obviously not as well-liked. Interesting was the fact that not everyone agreed on the second-best pad but had those four closely ranked second through fifth in some order. Each of them rated a different one of those four as better but agreed that they all were just a hair behind the Gooey and much better than the rest.

In other words, the "best" pad in your buddies' opinions might not be your favorite but you can't go too far wrong with any of the five I mentioned. If all-out felt recoil reduction is your goal, Gooey is your pad.

Mike Mazzucchi put a Gooey on my Citori Plus this last summer.

WOW--what a pad. Shot one of my best rounds of doubles after that.

Had a Kickezz on it before that, no comparison.

Mike,

Got it in the mail. Can't wait to try it. The size you sent will also work on my Mach One.

Later, Joe

The only way a gooey pad will fit without grinding is on a PFS or an adjustable butt plate that is ground to the gooey factory size. All gooey pads can be ground down to a shortened stock size because the pad has the same material all the way through unlike the Beretta geltek which can not be ground.
