    A local club is starting a junior trap league. I'm going to let the kids use my old SKB 600, however, even w/light loads it still kicks pretty good. It has the original Ithaca butt pad, and it's pretty dried out.
    Please recommend a pad that can absorb the MOST recoil (I don't want to spend money on porting or in-stock recoil absorbers). I'm hoping the kids will get a lot of use out of this gun, but I want to avoid any recoil-related bad habits if I can. We'll probably load very light loads as well.
    A friend can install and grind the pad to fit - I just need to know which pad sucks up the most oomph!! Want these kids to have the best chance at becoming the next generation of great trapshooters.
    Wish me luck.

    If you have a friend that can fit it try a Limbsaver from Simms. They are the best I have found.

    Put a pound of lead in the butt stock plus a thick soft pad. HMB

    Thanks for all the advice. The kids will be shooting at the Great Lakes gun club off of Danforth Rd. west of Escanaba.
    Program is in its early stages, but I'm trying to get ready to go.
    Good and reasonable advice is always available on TS (as long as you have a reasonable problem/request).
    Thanks again.
    Mike

    since it is for a junior program we will send you a couple of our terminator recoil pads at no charge.

    please e-mail me your mailing address and they will go out the same day.


    good shooting!

    I have been using the Super Gooey pad for about 5 years. I have never had one separate. Nubs Wagner.

    I have sold 300 Gooey pads,,over time. they are the best at recoil reduction!! BUT they require some care,, like, I only use Black ones. they dont get sticky as bad as the colored ones. I don't sell the "super gooey" , they move too much when one mounts the gun. Once in a while one can wash it with dishwash soap. Cost a little more but does so much more! Paul

    I would forget the pad and load some 7/8oz loads at about 1075-1100fps.
