    What is everyone's opinion on the RAD recoil systems vs. the Gracoil systems.I am considering one or the other. Joel Brown

    You need to add Ken Rucker's Bump Buster to your list. IMHO. Ron

    I had a gracoil and went to the RAD unit on the way to a PFS. RAD is a smooth operating, easily adjustable unit. Figure out what the problem is and consider saving a lot of time along the way and get a PFS.

    I personally favor the gracoil, over the rad, I have one of both on two different guns.
    My problem with my rad, its slips often, never seems to stay tight, taken back a few times, they tighten it and no clue why it keeps doing the slipping thing. It's used on a gun I use just twice a year.

    I will say I talked to RAD they were happy to help me. Also the Gracoil people are great to deal with, (bought a used gun that had one on it that had to be removed and could not get it loose.)

    As you will find its a personal choice.

    Another vote for Ken Rucker's Bump Buster, I have had a RAD 2, nice unit but very heavy. Ken took the best of both the Gracoil and the RAD 2 and made in my experience a far superior product. I now have a Bumpbuster and much prefer it over the others. Mark Richards

    Rad II. I have both a Gracoil Recoil System w/LOP adjustement and a Rad II w/LOP adjustment. I just think the Rad is easier to adjust and works better overall. I have not had any of the issues described above(not to say it couldn't happen). This said, I have had no problems with the Gracoil System either.

    It's the old RAD's that had the slippage problem, easily fixed with loctite. The new RAD II is very nice and IMHO smoother than the gracoil. Bill
