    Just wondering which recoil pad you would chose. This is for my daughter. She has a BT 99 Plus. The recoil pad on it is a hard black pad and it hurt her bad today. She was shooting 1 oz shells. Want to replace it with a Kick eez or a goey pad. Which one should I chose? Is there a better choice?
    Thanks
    Tim

    Check out a TrapDude. I bought a gun recently that had one installed on it and found it is very nice.

    I just put a Beretta micro core pad on my gun. So far I like it better than the kick eez pad I had on the gun before.

    Kickeez has a few diferent shapes to choose from.If you go to there website or just mount a few of your club members guns and decide which design goes into yor shoulder the best.I have a trap design,modified trap,rocker,and a flat pad.You will find one that will feel best on your gun an mount style.You will save money unlike me if you test mount different pads before you buy.


    good luck,
    joe

    Putting a new one of either of the two pads you named would certainly help. I would also make sure she is pulling the butt of the gun securely in the shoulder pocket. You may also consider canting the pad slightly to better fit her shoulder pocket. I'm not sure if the BT Plus allows this or not though. If it isn't possible on the Plus BT a stock guy could probably add a pad adjuster without permanently altering the gun. Just a thought.

    We have the pad canted to fit her shoulder. The BT plus is made for that. The pad that was on it was not the original and looks like one that came of a citori special sporting that was hard rubber so it would slip up when mounting gun. I showed her the choices and she likes the goey pad that is fluorescent green.
    Thanks for all your thoughts. I am going to order one of them.

    I recommend the Gooey pad, try the curved one.

    Since I tried my first Gooey Pad about 4 years ago, now have them on all my shotguns.

    Rod I was the guy that called you yesterday to order a goey pad from you for my daughter. Thanks for your time. I did call George at trapdude and ordered a curved goey pad in lime green for her gun.
    If any body needs a recoil pad Rod is a great guy and So is trapdude Thanks for all the help.

    I would select the #401 Kick-eze pad, it is a trap pad w/curve

    NOTHING is even CLOSE to being as soft as a gooey pad. Only recoil pad I'll use, and the only one that feels comfortable to me anymore.

    Gooey pad. They're a pain to install and don't put them on the ground in the summer because they're sticky and will pick up crap off the ground. They don't last as long as KickEez but they're the best recoil pad. PERIOD.
