The hydraulic fluid works to match your body shape that contours the shoulder when the gun is fired. The gun wraps around you—you don’t wrap yourself around the gun.
How FalconStrike Reduces Recoil Energy
The elastic bladder expands by 10% or more to spread the energy from recoil around a larger surface area.
The energy conversion dampener (found on aircraft landing gear) further works to reduces recoil energy by converting peak force into heat—that ultimately gets distributed evenly at the point of contact.
FINALLY SHOOTING WITHOUT PAIN….
I bought my first Falcon Strike about two months ago for my trap gun. I decided to give it a good trial, shooting every week since. On Tuesday evening I shot 75 rounds without pain. Wednesday was practice day and I decided to shoot my back-up gun of similar weight and dimensions with a Limbsaver AirTech recoil pad which was the best I had found up to buying the FalconStrike. After firing half dozen shots my shoulder was in pain from a rotator cuff injury I have been dealing with. Needless to say, I switched back to my FalconStrike equipped trap gun without further pain. I just ordered another Falcon Strike for my back-up trap gun. I was skeptical at first but the Falcon Strike worked as advertised for me without all the movement of a recoil device and has made shooting fun again.
FalconStrike Gives You These Advantages
FalconStrike vs. Rubber Pads and Muzzle Brakes
At FalconStrike, we know that you want a more comfortable shooting experience. To do that, you need to reduce the punishing effects of recoil.
Recoil causes flinching that reduces accuracy and can cause persisting soreness and pain—which shortens the time you can enjoy shooting, hunting or competing.
Rubber pads do little to reduce the total energy from recoil that affects your whole body. Pads act as buffers that reduce the felt “kick” of a rifle that can push up to 2,200 lbs of force on your body and shoulder within thousandths of a second. Most pads only have air chambers that absorb the “kick” and vibration through proprietary materials that work as an extra layer of padding. Shot for shot, recoil pads don’t do enough to fight fatigue and soreness.
Muzzle Brakes can cost hundreds of dollars and lost time at the gunsmith. Muzzle brakes increase noise levels, cause blow-back and add undesired length to your barrel.
With FalconStrike, you get enhanced recoil energy reduction through hydraulic dampening without the cost and expense of installing a muzzle brake.
