    First off I just want to say hi to everyone, I havn't made very many post at all, I normally get answers to all of my questions from my daily visits or by searching, but I can't find an answer to this one. I know the topic of what brand of recoil pad is favored has been posted often, but heres what I've got. I purchased a new O/U and I want to put a good pad on it, I've desided to go with a Kick-Ez. I will be shooting mostly Doubles with it, but I would also be shooting a handfull of Sporting Clays, normally just the benefit shoots, not competively. When I shoot Sporting Clays I mount the gun before calling for my targets. I like the curved Trap pad my BT-99 has and was wondering if one would cause me problems in my swing?

    I normally shoot SC and Doubles with a field model 1100 with a stock pad, so I was just looking for some info before I got a new one fitted. Sorry for the long post, just want to cover all basis

    Thanks
    Tony

    I just ordered a KICK EEZ pad directly from them at the above web site. I called them first and they were really helpful. Midway has them cheeper but want more S/H. (9.70 compared to 7.00)

    Last year I believed Gooey Pads were the best. This year I like Kick Eez. Next year, I could easily change my mind again.

    Thanks for the replys, but what I was looking for I guess would be the shape and if you felt that a curved trap pad would be ok to shoot Sporting Clays with.

    Thanks

    This may work well for you on your sporting clays gun. I've also included a link to the Kickeez site, grind to fit category.
