    1. Which brand is the best recoil pad for truely reducing felt recoil?
    2. Which shape all-purpose straight, rocker, standard trap?
    3. Is thicker better? I.E., recoil-wise is a 1&1/8" better than a 1" pad or a 3/4"?
    All comments appreciated.

    I really like the Kickeez Modified Trap pad. I have it on an adjustable plate so I can rotate it slightly. It is 1 1/8 inch thick and always finds the sweet spot in my shoulder pocket.

    I like the Gooey Pads. I think it reduced the felt recoil, but thats just my opinion. I use the 1 1/8 inch thick pad on an adjustable plate. I like the way the gun feels.Good luck in your search!

    I use limbsaver on my hunting guns.....but a kickeez on my target gun. The limbsaver pads are good at reducing recoil but I think they are a little thicker...therefore increasing lop.

    I shoot a Kickeez Modified trap pad as well. I have tried them all and for me the Modified trap pad fits me better than any othe others. Because it fits me better, I have less felt recoil than I did with the others. Another great thing about this pad is that it also allows me to put the stock in the same place, every time I mount the gun. I REALLY like this pad.......Dan Thome (Trap2)

    On the other hand,,, Rollin isn't the one shooting MY gun! I like the original Gooey pad, it fits my large body best. I am heavy thru the chest and the it keeps the toe from digging into my "meat"!! Gotta go with what you like and need, not anyone else. There is no one recoil pad right for everyone! Paul

    I use the convex Gooey Pads. Almost all shooters "shoulder pockets" are concave and the convex shape fits into this pocket.

    A problem with Gooey Pads is that they attract dirt and can be very difficult to clean.

    I'm currently using KickEez 500 series pads on both of my tournement guns but may try the Rocker Pad to fine tune gun fit and give my face a break...
