    Getting them near WD-40 and other oils and solvents must cause break-down somehow

    Kick-Eze pads do not get as gooey as Gooey-Pads get.

    Stop using chemicals intended for metal on wood and rubber. I have to wonder if the handy cap average less your yardage is the average IQ of a trap shooter.!

    I know a few smart ones... there the ones that don't ask dumb Questions! Think first.

    Sorry, can't help you.

    Why don't you try Slick-eez? It's made by Kick-eez for coating the top of the pad. It cures in 24 hrs and is tenacious. It comes in a kit with a cleaner and the finish chemical. When it cures it's tough and the pad no longer sticks to you clothing. After coating it toughens the pad surface and it works as before it just doesn't stick. Kick-eez has a warning to coat the top only. If you coat the sides the pad won't work properly.

    In time the surface will appear cracked from use. This doesn't affect the use or affectiveness of the coating. It doesn't peal off.

    Although it's expensive the two small bottles will coat several pads. I have used this item for several years and couldn't be happier.

    It's available from Midway.

    All rubbers are made with "plastisizers". These chemicals tend to leach to the surface in time. Heat & exposure to UV rays speeds this up. The softer the compound the more plastisizer used.
