The Patriot Shotgun Recoil Pads

KICK-EEZ Made in the USA Recoil Pads

One of our latest releases–The Patriot Pad–is also one of the best recoil pads across the nation. 

Like the rest of our shotgun recoil pads, this absolute beauty is constructed with Sorbothane. Differentiating this model is its red, white, and blue design meant to pay homage to our Veterans. 

These patriotic colors will show your appreciation for all our brave soldiers have done to preserve our rights and freedoms. 

Owners of the Patriot Shotgun Recoil Pad speak to its excellent feel. They also appreciate how it can be grinded into your preferred shape, no matter what it is. One reviewer even said these products are the best recoil pads on the market.

Dual Action Shotgun Recoil Pads

The Sorbothane is doubled in our KICK-EEZ Dual-Action Shotgun Recoil Pads. Specifically, there are two layers of Sorbothane.

The first layer of Sorbothane is exceptionally soft, absorbing and reacting quickly to bolster the user’s accuracy. With the second layer of Sorbothane, the purpose is energy dissipation. There’s also maximized absorption of recoil.

Most importantly, our Dual Action Pads are easy to install. This feature is consistent across our entire product selection. It’s one of the main reasons we have the best recoil pads in the US.

Independent tests speak to our Dual Action Shotgun Recoil Pads being number-one on the market for energy absorption. No other pads compare. 

One customer review discussed the ability to fire “hundreds of rounds of handicap” without feeling sore for days on end. That is a testament to the optimal comfort provided by these pads, leading to better accuracy and control.

All-Purpose Shotgun Recoil Pads

Our All-Purpose Shotgun Recoil Pads feature Sorbothane, just like the bulk of our products.

We previously discussed Sorbothane but didn’t necessarily delve into it. Specifically, it’s a proprietary material made of visco-elastic, known best for its enhanced damping capabilities. 

To the above point, the shock absorption levels of Sorbothane can reach 94.7%. Furthermore, these levels are maintained over a vast range of temperatures.

There’s also the fact that the memory of Sorbothane is nearly flawless. It can undergo thousands of compressions and still return to its initial shape. 

The simple installation process and ease of use bolster the many other benefits of Sorbothane, making our All-Purpose model among the best recoil pads on the market.

Modified Trap Shotgun Recoil Pads

KICK-EEZ’s Modified Trap Shotgun Recoil Pads have a blast finish on the face and are somewhat concave in design.

They offer users 100% contact with their shoulders. The result? Pressure points are entirely eliminated, leading to optimal comfort.

With this comfort-optimized design, you can shoulder the gun in the same position every time you pull the trigger. This feature proves very useful for shooters who prefer higher shoulder positions. 

Note that all Modified Trap Shotgun Recoil pads are 5 and 5/8" long and 2” wide.

Pre-Fit Recoil Pads

Here’s how to fit your pad with our Pre-Fit Pads:

It doesn’t matter if a gun is wooden or synthetic–many variables are involved in gunstock manufacturing. Humidity, age, temperature, and fluctuations all occur over time. Alternatively, your gun might have been modified. Regardless of what’s most impacted your firearm, you must compare your stock with our 10 KICK-EEZ Pre-Fit Pad templates.

Each of our Pre-Fit Pads has multiple screw hole placements. This is worth noting because screw hole location is vital to synthetic stocks. 

Here’s how to compare your current pad with our Pre-Fit Pad templates:

  • Remove your old pad
  • Stand your gun on the template
  • Do the same with your old pad to discover the location of screw holes

Note that the accuracy of the recoil pad is on the template line and not inside the line.
