    I do, what do you need? I have a minimum order of 2 unless I'm fitting the pad.

    Do you like the Gooey pads better than the Kick Ezz pads? I have seen the Gooey's for several years but have always used Kick Ezz pads. How do they compair?

    Thanks

    BigJohn270 : No camparison, they might not last as long but as far as comfort and felt recoil the Gooey pad beats them by a long shot. I use the one with the red insert that was made for Leo which does not catch on your shirt.

    Trapdude is the place to buy them.

    Just my opinion, the Gooey pad may be a bit softer than a KickEEZ but the KickEEZ will outlast the Gooey by a longshot. I would consider 2 years out of a Gooey to be pretty good and while I don't mind paying for a new pad the cost and inconvenience of the labor to install it gets to me.

    Just came from the Wisconsin State Shoot. Tom Larkin is there, and the trapdude pads where on the table. Very soft pads. I imagine they would gum up the sanding belts pretty quick.

    You can buy a pad from Trap Dude but you have to have it fitted and sanding it is complex. I have bought two from Skeet man.

    They aren't horrible to fit, but you have to take your time and not grind on one part of the pad for too long (I take maybe 30% more time when I'm grinding a gooey). I do one side of the pad for 10-15 seconds, then flip it over and do the other side, and alternate back and forth until its ground down. You CAN'T grind one side completely then grind the other side completely, you'll destroy the pad. I also use 3 belts on my sander when I fit them, a coarse grit for 90% of the mat'l removal, a medium grit for 9% removal, and a fine grit for 1% removal and polishing. They also don't take quite as nice of a polish as you can get from a kickeez.

    I've frozen them before, and used ice water to fit to keep the pad cold, but lately I've just been grinding them @ room temp.

    BTW, the reason I have a min order of 2 is that I order all pads on an as-needed basis, I don't inventory any of them (I don't move enough to justify tying a large amt of money up in them). I make very little on the pads themselves (If I were to sell them one at a time, I'd be loosing # if I factor in my time), I make money on the service of fitting the pad.
