Bobby Fowler, Jr. two-time NCSA National Champion and world titleholder, Texas Hall of Fame inductee, perennial member on the NSCA All-American Team and Team USA, Shotgun Shooting Instructor, and President and Owner of Elite Shooting School, Inc. has this to say about KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads:
“I have been using KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads since they came out in the 80’s. I have tried others over the years, but KICK-EEZ is by far the best on the market. It reduces the recoil tremendously, stays fixed in my pocket when firing the gun, never gets sticky or gummy when ground down to fit on any gun (as others do), and comes in several different sizes, making it easy to change the length of pull on a gun. KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads look great as well. I always recommend KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads to ALL my clients!”

I wrote an email to KICK-EEZ requesting information about a particular recoil pad. Their response was more than timely and the knowledge of your product was evident. My email was followed up with a phone call by Dave so he could understand my objective and he patiently answered every question I had. I placed an order online, called back to ask when the order might be shipped and my phone call was answered immediately. My order was quickly located, the shipping date was confirmed, I was issued a tracking number, and all the information was emailed to me within minutes. The people at KICK-EEZ that assisted me were more interested in making sure that I had all my needs met and all my questions answered than they were in just selling another recoil pad. A pleasure doing business with y’all!

After reading about KICK-EEZ recoil pads on several forum-type internet sites, I decided I had to give one of them a try. You see, I had just bought a new 12 gauge shotgun and after putting only 18 rounds through it, my right shoulder was black and blue. I went back to KICK-EEZ website, and after looking at the very wide selection I had managed to confuse myself. I sent off an email describing what I was looking to do and sat back to await an answer. The answer came via telephone the next morning by a gentleman named Dave. He took the time to explain not only what he thought would work best for me, but a wealth of information on its fitting and use as well. I ordered just as Dave had suggested and fitted it all onto my new shotgun when it arrived a few days later.

I have just returned from the rifle range, and all I can say is WOW!!!!!! I can’t believe the difference in the feel of this shotgun. Before the KICK-EEZ pad, my shoulder was hurting even after only a couple of rounds. Today, after three boxes of 12 gauge sabot slugs, my shoulder doesn’t feel a thing. I want to say, too, that the gun feels much better in my shoulder even before I squeeze the trigger. KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads are the pads that every manufacturer needs to put on their rifles and guns before the ship them out. I still need to better align the pad to the end of the stock, but this is only a cosmetic issue, and deer season starts next weekend. Thank you for a marvelous product and for some excellent advice, Dave. You can be sure I will be telling all my shooting friends of your incredible product!

One of the greatest shooting accessories ever!!!
I have a Remington 700 BDL 30-06 and it was difficult to put more than 20 rounds through it in a day at the range without feeling it for a week, in fact, my son wouldn’t even shoot it. So I started looking around and found this magical shoulder saver. I purchased the KICK-EEZ Slip-Over System with an extra pack of recoil inserts, installed it all in about 5 minutes or so. The next time I went to the range, I personally put 200+ rounds through it with no problem; my son also gave it a try and put around 35+ rounds through it also without even a small grimace. One of the best things about purchasing the KICK-EEZ system is the unsurpassed Customer Service. I called because I wasn’t sure which would be the best for my application because I didn’t have the time or the tools to custom fit one of the grind to fit pads on my Remington and Dave was right there to help every step of the way. If you’re thinking about the KICK-EEZ system for your Rifle, do yourself a favor and stop thinking and buy it—you won’t be sorry!!!

I’m an avid hunter, shooter and life member of the NRA. I was looking for a recoil pad for a 20 gauge Benelli I’d purchased for my 15 year old son. The factory pad was very thin and didn’t absorb much in the way of recoil so I was hoping to further reduce the recoil for my son. I’d spent some time (3-4 hours) on the internet trying to get the right pad to no real success. However, when I spoke to the customer service representative at KICK-EEZ, all my problems went away. They recommended a specific pad that was a Pre-Fit model, but what I didn’t know was that all KICK-EEZ Pads can be ground further for an exacting fit. The representative gave me very clear and easy to follow directions for grinding their pads; what a difference! The pad looks great, but even more important; it’s going to keep my 15 year old interested in shooting sports for years to come. I’m a huge fan of KICK-EEZ, not because the products are great, and they ARE, but because someone at KICK-EEZ helped me when I truly needed some professional
advice. Great products, Great Customer Service, supporting shooter and made right here in the USA. What a GREAT company!

Starting 30 years ago, I used a competitor’s pad exclusively because that is the brand I was taught on. Being human, I was reluctant to change to another brand because the results were dependable, even if they were not always desirable. When I began to get customers requesting a KICK-EEZ Pad, I reluctantly agreed to order and install as requests demanded. It was very soon that I realized that KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads were becoming my preferred “Go To” recoil pad. This was over 15 years ago and since then I now reluctantly install another brand of recoil pad because I know that KICK-EEZ recoil pads will fulfill my customer’s needs and the life expectancy is by far the best of all others. At this point in my career, I do not know of a recoil pad brand that I have not installed; however, I can say that KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads are far and above the easiest to fit and the results are the best looking when the job is completed. Thank you for your commitment to quality control to produce such a well thought out and designed product.

Thank you very much for your generous donation for the ‘Fun Shoots” being held for brave military members recuperating from injuries in the line of duty. We had a need to devise a way of fitting a very thick and durable Recoil Pad to a very serious recoil firearm for our firearms for our disabled shooters in the Fun Shoots. I knew that I needed a way to tame the recoil on the 50 BMG rifle we were using so called KICK-EEZ http://www.kickeezproducts.com after explaining who would be using the firearm, the size of the firearm, and the stock, I got a return call the next day from their Operations Manager (this is one day before they are leaving for the “Shot Show”). That very day, they sent me an assortment of pads that will be able to be trimmed for this rifle and others we need (especially for burn victims). I’m constantly amazed at the generosity of some companies. KICK-EEZ wins this time hands down, they could have just sent one pad that would have done the job, but they were quick to think of the big picture and the disabilities the troops have. A BIG KUDO to this generous company!!!

Very nice, ground easy and oiled up nice. The best part about a KICK-EEZ recoil pad is you don’t feel a THING when shooting!

I needed a pad for my Browning 525 and went on a web search. One of the GOOGLE sites was KICK-EEZ (www.kickeezproducts.com ) and up came a wonderfully easy and informative website. I navigated through the shotgun section and downloaded a template to check closest fit in their Pre-Fit section. I clicked on the closest match and snicker snack, it was ordered in just a few minutes. Next thing I know, there are two emails, one thanking me for the order, saying it was in stock and would be shipped, and a note from Susan telling me that it was shipped the same day with a USPS tracking number. It was here in four days from Washington, and exactly what I ordered/needed. The fit was close and with minimal sanding and a little work, it’s installed and looking good.Thanks Susan/KICK-EEZ….you done good.

KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads are the perfect counterpart for our SoftTouch recoil reduction system. We inventory the entire line and recommend KICK-EEZ for our customers over all other brands. Always reliable, consistent quality, easy to fit and install and a nice compliment to our SoftTouch system. And like our SoftTouch system, the folks at KICK-EEZ had their recoil pads tested by an independent scientific research facility to verify and validate their recoil reduction claims. Thank you for an excellent product. To add to the KICK-EEZ KUDOS, AWESOME Customer Service.

Installed and sanded down my KICK-EEZ recoil pad in about half an hour. Very easy to sand pad to match stock. Definitely helps tame those hyper slug loads. Highly recommended.

I feel this is the best recoil pad I have ever used. Every new rifle or shotgun I purchase, the first thing I put on them is a KICK-EEZ recoil pad.

JerryBoise, ID

KICK-EEZ recoil pads are easy to fit to my Winchester Model 70 in .300 Win Mag. Brings the “felt recoil” down to the level of my custom 6.5# in .243. Very impressive!

When I first saw the KICK-EEZ Recoil Pad, I must say that I had my doubts as to how effective it would be to tame the kick of my 6 ½ lb 12 ga o/u but when I took the first shot with the new pad installed I was amazed. I have now shot several rounds of skeet and no sore shoulder. You folks at KICK-EEZ have a great product!

Jim Lorbeski

After deciding to replace the factory pad on my BT-99, and talking to other shooters that were using KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads, I contacted KICK-EEZ directly and the customer service was outstanding, the turn around very quick, and I am very satisfied with my KICK-EEZ Recoil Pad because it really does make a difference on felt recoil!

With 2 mobile workshops covering 30 states, we do more custom fitting sessions than any other shop in the country. Having carried the KICK-EEZ brand for 20+ years, I can confidently say that it is simply the finest recoil pad on the market today. Its recoil absorbing ability is unmatched. Its finish quality after the install is excellent. Easy to grind. Easy to fit and affordable. I never have to apologize for using KICK-EEZ in my sessions. We don’t just talk the talk. It’s the only brand we carry. Not only is the product great, the people behind the product are first-rate, honest and friendly.

I stock and install KICK-EEZ pads exclusively. I feel that they give the best balance of recoil reduction, ease of installation and appearance of any pad I’ve ever used. They are the perfect complement to my Bump-Buster and Auto-Buster recoil systems.

I used this pad to extend the length on a Winchester 21 shotgun that had a curved butt. I found out from KICK-EEZ that you can put them into VERY HOT but not boiling water for several minutes which then softens up the base enough so that they can be bent to fit the curved butts on many guns. (Don’t force it or it will crack.) Just be sure to screw it on right away so that it will “hold” the curve of the gun. That it a heck of a lot easier and cheaper than having to cut the butt stock square to mount other brands pads. What is also good about the KICK-EEZ brand is that they are solid and do not have a steel insert so you don’t have to worry about sizing when it comes to grinding them down.

If there is a better quality recoil reducer available for a rifle, I haven’t seen it. The KICK-EEZ recoil pad is exceptionally easy to shape. Just follow the instructions that come with the pad. I shoot an 8mm Mauser with close to full power loads. The KICK-EEZ recoil pad absorbs the recoil exceptionally well. I am disabled so this is very important to me. If you do a good job of blending the pad to your rifle stock, you will have a great looking addition that performs above and beyond the call of duty!

GaryIndio, CA

I doubt I have ever been so pleased by the performance of any other firearms related product! My T/C Encore in .308 has a rather nasty kick for its caliber due to the short barrel. The KICK-EEZ pad has dramatically reduced the felt recoil and even allowed my twin daughters to shoot in comfort and with confidence. Their shot placement improved the more they shot and none of us ended the day with sore shoulders. I am absolutely amazed and pleased with the performance of your product. I will be replacing all my existing recoil pads on my other rifles and shotguns with KICK-EEZ Recoil pads; it is the only option for all my guns! Thank you for an outstanding product!
