    I have a P.F.S from Vern Brown. Can shoot 3 dram loads all day and not feel a thing. I have heard that if the gun fits you right you won't have any problems with recoil. I don't know how true that is but, since I changed stocks, I can shoot all day. Just saying this works for me. Good luck,
    Larry

    smoke, if you can't shoot a shotgun, you probably don't need a recoil reducer.

    Well I like my Rad II w/LOP adjustment. I have shoulder and back/spine issues and it sure helps me. I'm not saying its the best but it works for me.

    Smoke, I have the same problems as you. I've tried several different ones and have even added a lot of weight to reduce felt recoil. The absolute best I've used so far is the ProSoft stock built by Phil Simms, made to my fit numbers!!

    In that case, I've enjoyed my Gra-Coils.

    Another Vote for the PFS system. Totally adj. stock with wide range of adj for the recoil as well. If you can find a used one you'll never lose a penny on it. Just hold onto your wood stock and sell gun and PFS seperately and you'll get all your money back. Try that with any other recoil system out there. There are many systems out there from $200 on up and you'll be lucky to get half of your money back on your gun when you try to sell it to someone. None of them will have the adj. that the PFS has as well. The only drawback is that they look a machine. You can get the stocks painted to look like wood now though. Good Luck on your shooting and break em all Jeff

    LOL@Roger!! I've done a tad of BSing in my time but it sure is nice to meet a real pro???

    I'm leaving first thing in the morning my friend for Ben Avery. I am leaving my P gun home this time though, gotta give the boys a chance?? NOT!! My stock isn't finished yet so it's the ole B 303 magic stick this time. Can I shoot doubles beside you? If not, I'll just sign up by myself to break my hunert!

    A properly fitted gun is the best recoil reducer. Every thing else is mostly mental.

    If you want the best system for eliminating perceived recoil, buy a G-Squared Shock-master.

    Another vote for the PFS from Vern Brown. Can be adjusted to fit almost anyone and a very effective and low maintenance recoil reduction system. J. Terre

    Small investment without ruining your gun. One inch Gooey pad.
