Anyone have experience with the Isis Xpad on an o/u shotgun. Not the whole system but just the Xpad. How do you like it in general. How much do you feel it reduces recoil?

Thanks, Doc

Have them on both my main and BUG. In a word AWESOME. I will *NEVER* go back to a KickEeze...

Oh, and they weigh like 4 ounces less than the KickEeze. Upside is obvious, downside is you may need to add back enough weight in the butt to maintain current balance.

IMHO, it reduces recoil even better. I have the 1" (25mm). It is two-layers of different dense foams and not squishy soft, but still attenuates recoil very well.

Microcell is even better. The Xpad a friend of mine has is hard as a rock, basically as hard as a Kickeez or Pachmayr, although I do believe he has the thinnest one they make.

My 25mm Xpad is a bit softer than a microcell -- FWIW.

If I take a small mallet and gently tap a kickeeze, the mallet bounces off about half back. If I do same with the Xpad, the mallet basically dead stops at the pad.

What does that prove though?

I've never heard of anyone having issues that were solely induced by recoil pad bounce, and it wouldn't be a fair analog to use a mallet anyways since the shock against a recoil pad is spread over it's entire face and not one square inch.

Well Ian, I "proved" it to myself by installing one on my gun... For me the Xpad does a notably better job on recoil attenuation than the KickEeze I had on before it. I only ever had a microcell on my semi-auto and not my O/U so cannot comment on how it compares.
