Bill, i recently bought a new gun and the recoil was effecting me. I went to a pachmyer deaccelator (spelling?) that works good but i think cutting the LOP down to 14 1/8 was the main reason it doesnt effect me now. LOP was 14 3/4 and i am short. Good shooting, Bob.......
I do like the Limbsaver pads. I have them on all my hunting rifles and shotguns plus one on my 1100 Competition. I am hoping that they come out with a concave and I will put them on my other trap guns.
How well the pitch on the stock fits you will often affect which shaped pad, flat or rocker pad people prefer. Also involved in pad preference is the shape of individual shoulder pockets along with the stance used.
