    I have a spring recoil reducer on my gun. It is and has always been set at the softest level. I still get face slap (don't tell me about pitch, I know all that) If I tighten up the setting on the reducer what effect will it have if any? I know I can try it but many of you have been through the same thing and why not listen those who have been there.
    Thanks in Advance.

    The biggest mistake people make is setting the tension too light. The recoil system should be adjusted so that 1) it does not compress with your normal mount and 2) it does not bottom out when you shoot. If it bottoms out, you get a delayed punch. Stiffen it up!!
