    I know Gooey pads are tough to install without the right kind of sander/belt but they seem to be really soft. The XLT "Ultra Soft" Magnum Trap Pachmayr pad is supposed to be very soft too, but is easy to grind and install. I am having more and shoulder problems and need a soft pad--would I really lose anything by going with the Pachmayr? I have recoil reducer on gun already but need a little more help. Thanks.

    what have you been shooting in the past?

    I have had good luck with kick-eez and I leave them full size for more square inches of contact to spread the impact out over a bigger area.

    Shrek--I thought of that and I think that might help a great deal. I appreciate the advice from all of you. Just need to find somebody who can install a Gooey for me. A lot of gunsmiths don't want to mess with them.

    I shoot with a gooey pad for same reason you list. Instalation is two screws. I leave mine oversized to spread recoil over larger area. Get the thickest one the others are ok but I seemed to place the thick one on my shoulder more consistantly.

    The gooey is softer BUT the XLT is easier to install and grind to fit for who ever will be doing it. We have used and done both. Wife has XLT on her gun with no complaints. Goey already got sold to someone else and had torn a lil.

    If you have shoulder problems you should look at getting a recoil reduction device.
