    Is anyone familiar with Remington's new SuperCell recoil pads? The Remington Website claims that 870 recoil (obviously, felt recoil) with the new pad is reduced 54%.

    This seems almost too good to be true.

    Has anyone used a gun, rifle or shotgun, that has one of these new Pads? Are they available as aftermarket pads that can be ordered?

    I did a search on Google and came up with the address listed above. Cabelas also has them listed.

    Dale,

    Thanks, Dale.

    It will be interesting to see if anyone has used one and what they think about the pad's felt-recoil reduction. Remington makes some almost unbelievable claims, especially with their being inexpensive, as well.

    If my memory is correct they are for the synthetic stocked guns and not made for the wood stocked guns.

    Remington's marketting department can claim anything they like. 54% recoil reduction on an 870 would be near miraculous! I have my doubts their claim can be backed up by any serious data, however for the average hunter person who buys a 870 to shoot a few times a year ANY recoil reduction is a plus. We trap shooting types who shove THOUSANDS of rounds through our guns each year know better. No recoil pad is going to reduce recoil by 54%. 10% to 20% ... maybe, and that would be significant. But it does not sound like much to the retail public .... so the marketting guys strech the truth a bit. Does anyone believe all the hype we hear about products.

    Reminds me of when I was a kid and used to pour over the J.C. Whitney catalog. I figured out if I put all the stuff that would give me 10% better milage on my car, I'd have to empty the tank twice a week!

    Merry Christmas,

    My favorite item in the J. C. Whitney catalog was the "Tire re-grover." It looked like a heavy duty soldering iron and with it, a person could burn new groves into a bald tire.

    Another favorite item was the "Hair Around It" that fit over the key ignition switch so that you could find it in the dark.

    Sorry to jump in but I had to comment.

    Years ago, I added a Kick Ease pad to a Remington 700 BDL 30-06 and it really helped, especially with 180 grain bullets. Without the pad, I never felt the recoil while hunting but got beat up bad on the range sighting in the rifle. I hope the new Remington pad works out.

    We expect such claims by some companies, but not from a company with the reputation of Remington. When they make one claim that it not true, it raises questions about other statements they make.

    Bob Schultz- I can produce a device that will reduce the recoil reduction by 100%. Absolute guarantee! Are you interested?

    I have had a pad in my hand

    Its nothing like a limbsaver

    it seems to be a very open cell foam that along the surface becomes very closed cell in the manufacturing

    It feels like it will work-

    It also feels signifantly lighter when you hold one as compared to a kickeez

    regards from Iowa

    I PUT ONE ON MY 1187 SYNTHETIC STOCK IN PLACE OF AN R3 LIMBSAVER. I DID A BACK TO BACK TEST WITH 3 INCH LOADS WEARING A T SHIRT. THE SUPERCELL DID FEEL SOMEWHAT SOFTER THAN THE LIMBSAVER WHICH FELT ALOT SOFTER THAN THE STOCK REMINGTON PAD WHEN I TESTED IT LAST YEAR. SO IN COMPARISON TO THE STOCK REMINGTON PAD IT GREATLY REDUCES THE RECOIL. I JUST ORDERED A WOOD STOCK VERSION FOR MY WINGMASTER WHICH KICKS LIKE A MULE WITH THE OLD VENTED RED PAD.
    I DON'T THINK YOU CAN BEAT IT FOR THE PRICE....BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE WOOD STOCK VERSION AND IT IS A TAD SMALL FOR TARGET STOCKS.

    I have this factory pad on an 870 SuperMag Waterfowl version. It's a nice pad but it ain't all the hype that surrounds around it. When your hunting and getting off shots it's no time to be thinking about recoil and when the shooting is over any recoil is long forgotten. The R3 is also a good pad I have that on an 11-87 SuperMag. The pad is very sufficient. If your hunting and shooting 3 1/2" 12 and 10 ga. magnums, if your recoil sensative no pad will make that much of a difference.

    All in all I think if you were to fit one on a trap 870 or an 1100 you would like it. I understand the comparison of hunting recoil and target round(s) recoil situation is different. The pad size may fall in line more with the factory synthetic stocks though. I've always be consurned more about fit than felt recoil.
