Use the Microcell Cervelatti from Hastings Distribution. I put them on all my guns. 3 thickness. Thin, med and thick. 2 colors. Black and red
They have replaced kick eze, pachmeyer etc. I have no set time for replacement. Usually when I get the gun or it looks ratty

Life depends on different things, one of those being how you mount your gun. Obviously, a shooting discipline requiring a "low-gun" mount would wear on a pad differently than a "pre-mounted" situation.

I do a lot of both because I shoot a lot of different clay target sports.

With that being said, I went to Kick-Ezz pads years ago and use them exclusively.

Good Luck and Good Shooting!

I think a Recoil Pad is like the tires on your car , they might still look ok but getting hard and loosing the purpose . I have changed some after 4 or 5 years because they got sticky but have some they might by close to 20 years old . Never used Kick- Ezz and like the Pachmyer .

I fit a new Microcell pad this morning, replacing the Kickeez on my Zoli.
Softer and not near as tacky. Half the price too.
I think sometimes a tacky pad will grab material and not find the “sweet spot” as easily as a smoother Microcell will.
You know you’ve done it...had your pad grab a handful of vest and know it’s not perfect but you call your target anyway, miss and kick your own ass for not starting over. I think a Microcell lessens the chance of this.

The good folks at the Bi-Star Research & Development facility located next to the sheep pen in KS-OKIE'S backyard determined there was a need for a conventional recoil pad to complement their wildly successful "Recoil Pussy" product.

Look for the new "Pussy Pad" from Bi-Star this spring at better sporting goods stores near you.

I have several Kick-EEZ and you have me thinking about the Kick-EEZ being a bit sticky and thinking maybe a coat or two of wax might help if that is a problem for some.

Test Results, several coats of Renaissance wax removed most of the sticky feeling on the pad and shined the sides up nicely also. I might do it to all of mine.
What is Renaissance wax. Paste?

I have a 1997 Perazzi and finally replaced the recoil pad last year. The rubber was still fine but the leather cover was starting to look bad. Perazzi pads are glued on so I hope the one on my new Perazzi lasts as long. It is not leather covered and the rubber material looks different. Time will tell.

I've always used Pachmayr, but recently installed a limbsaver on a rifle. I had the rifle rebored from 6mm-06 to 9.3 X 62. It takes the bite out of that round and it trimmed up very nicely. Time will tell.
