Tucker Simpson Going for Gold
Tucker Simpson began his shooting career as part of the Woodland High School Trap Team located in Woodland, Washington – right down the street from our offices at KICK-EEZ. He uses KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads on all of his guns and attributes the benefits of their performance as a major part of his success. Tucker’s shooting scores quickly set him apart from the rest of his team members and he was chosen to lead the Woodland Trap Team as their team captain.
Tucker’s Upcoming Shooting Events
In addition to his efforts as a scholastic shooter, Tucker has on three occasions personally competed at the National level. This is his 4th season of overall competition.
- Tucker will be competing in Missoula, MT, in June of this year defending the gold medal he won in 2016.
- Tucker recently won gold in the Washington State Jr. Olympics in Renton, WA, and will be competing at the National Shotgun Challenge in Colorado Springs, CO, in July of this year.
- Tucker will be competing in the Perazzi Cup in Italy in July of this year—the chance of a lifetime for Tucker! It will be Tucker’s first—but certainly not his last—competition abroad.
High-Performance Recoil Pads
Aside from recoil pads that are specifically engineered for trap shooting, KICK-EEZ offers recoil pads to support any application. The following is a list of our top-selling recoil pads:
- All Purpose: Designed for all shooting applications, the recoil pad is flat across the face.
- Sporting Clay: Specifically engineered for Sporting Clay shooters, this recoil pad has a roughly 45-degree canted heel. This feature allows for easier shouldering from the ‘low gun’ position.
- Rocker: A favorite, and a great choice for all women shooters! The tapered toe and face design were engineered to help shooters mount their gun more consistently to the same pocket area. The shape of the pad doesn’t ‘dig’ into your shoulder to create a very comfortable shooting position.
- Trap: Specifically designed for ‘Fixed Position’ shooting, this recoil pad was engineered with a concave face.
- Modified Trap: If you’re a shooter who likes to shoot from the ‘High Shoulder’ position, this recoil pad is for you! We are proud of the groundbreaking design of our KICK-EEZ Modified Trap recoil pad, slightly concave giving 100% contact with the shoulder. This enhanced design eliminates pressure points, increasing any shooters’ ability to shoulder their gun in the same position each and every time – a key to becoming a more accurate Trap shooter.
