How Effective Are Shotgun Recoil Pads?

By April 8, 2023May 30th, 2023No Comments

Shotgun recoil can be a frustrating, even a painful part of shooting. Many people want to find ways to combat the effects of shotgun recoil, improve their overall shooting skills, and mitigate discomfort. Though you can help minimize the effects of recoil by using the proper grip and stance, some shotgun models may still cause pain or discomfort.

Shotgun recoil pads work to absorb recoil energy, making the shotgun easier to control and less painful. Though recoil can never be completely eliminated, you’ll find that a properly fitted, high-quality recoil pad will reduce recoil energy and  the shooting experience.

Our FalconStrike products are designed to help reduce recoil energy, muzzle lift, peak force, and rock back, so your shooting accuracy will improve, and you won’t deal with as much discomfort. We’ll go over how shotguns are more effective with our recoil pads than those with plain factory rubber recoil pads.

What Happens If Your Shotgun comes with a plain rubber Recoil Pad?

Using a shotgun with a plain factory installed recoil pad may be painful, depending on the type of gun. You’ll also have to contend with flinching, which can lead to inaccurate shots. Additionally, in time-sensitive situations like hunting or shooting doubles, you may miss out on the second shot because you have to realign yourself after the first shot’s recoil effects.

What Makes FalconStrike Recoil Pads Effective?

We offer the best shotgun recoil pads on the market (see customer testimonials), which work to reduce the discomfort from the effects of recoil. Plus, our recoil aids in overall endurance (you’ll be able to shoot for longer time periods) and accuracy (you won’t have to worry about flinching and messing up the shot).

  • Reduced Recoil Energy
  • Reduced Muzzle Lift
  • Reduced Peak Force
  • Reduced Rock Back

Overall, you’ll have less pain and discomfort from the effects of the recoil. Plus, you’ll be able to shoot for longer and with better accuracy, thanks to a reduced muzzle lift.

How are they so effective? Our recoil pads are made out of hydraulic fluid that dampens the kick and overall effects on your shoulder.
