    Highly recommended

    Posted by Glenn on May 29th 2023

    I have a 12ga over under with the factory recoil pad. The ShockEater does what its name says. I shoot 1200fps target loads and feel only a very slight push. No soreness, no bruising. I can shoot all day and go back for more. More importantly, there is no change in LOP. With these quality features and a very reasonable price, I highly recommend this product.

    The quality of this recoil pad is great. I have a different brand shooting vest which came with it's own gel pad. Much bulkier and didn't want to stay in the 'pocket' on the vest.

    ShockEater Recoil Pad Works!

    Posted by Flyfisher44 on May 19th 2022

    I shoot well over 400 rounds a week. I installed the ShockEater Recoil Pad as soon as it arrived in my vest and immediately put it to work in a 300 round handicap marathon. I felt fine when it was over. Looking forward to using it an the Idaho ATA State Shoot at the end of the month. Well worth the investment!

    Does the job

    Posted by Jim on Sep 29th 2021

    Have only used it on one trip to the range but man did it do its job. 100 rounds of 12 gauge and my shoulder didn’t even know it went to the range that day

    Shock Eater Recoil Pad

    Posted by Jason H on Dec 19th 2020

    I bought this in hope to reduce shoulder fatigue and I’m glad I did. I’ve shot 300 rounds using the shock eater and feel no fatigue in my should when done. Fits great in the heatwave mesh vest. Great quality and price. Makes for an easy day of shooting.

    Very Effective

    Posted by KirbO on Nov 26th 2020

    Added this to my Winter Coat order, helps reduce recoil of 1 1/8 oz. heavy target loads and at 1/4" thick does not make a noticeable difference in length of pull. The Coat pocket retains the pad in place quite well, to insert the pad fold it in thirds; Top down to the middle, bottom up to the middle, slip into pocket then unfold it into place.

    I have a black wild hare vest and a blue and silver vest. I bought a shock eater pad for each. I shoot approximately 200+ rounds per outing without feeling it.
