    Do different brand recoil pads make any difference. I guess I just find it hard to believe that one brand of recoil pad is any better than another but I'm hoping that I'm wrong. The two brands I'm looking at are Kick-Eez and Trap Dude.

    I haven't shot with both, but I have seen the trap dude gooey pads actually smear and tear over time.

    I have shot them both and I prefer the trap dude from a comfort standpoint.

    My last one was on my gun for 4 years I took it off because it was getting ugly.

    The Kickeze is a firmer pad and it will last longer for sure.

    For me comfort is important I don't need a pad that will last forever.

    To me the point of a pad is to reduce recoil. I have tried everyone I could get my hands on and none compare to the trap dude. No they don't last forever. They can get sticky and pick up trash when it gets hot. That is what soft material does. They do reduce recoil substantially.

    I use Pachmeyer pads on most of my guns because these are what come stock on Brownings and I have always beeen satisfied with them. On one Citori, I replaced the old pad with a Limbsaver and it seems to do a fine job of reducing recoil as well. Jack

    Get a limbsaver. I have one on my supermag and it kicks less than kick ez on my trap gun.

    Have a Trap Dude on my CG for over two years now. Best pad I've ever had.
    Also have one on a BT99 Golden Clays. Felt recoil is definitely less.
    Friend of mine in Oakdale has a Super Gooey on a 391. Can barely feel the recoil.
    He's had his for over three years and he shoots every week.

    Pachmayr T660 trap pad is great and curved for you shoulder.

    My favorite pad to install is a Kickeez. My vote for a soft trap pad is the pachmeyer triple magnum or the new xlt.

    Trap dude is a 1-2 year pad and they disintegrate with out notice so if you want the softest get the TrapDude but Get two fitted each time.

    I forgot to mention that I'm a Kickeez dealer if you need any my prices are too low to list.
