“I was testing a client’s gun and had to have the stock cut a bit shorter leaving me with a wooden butt end of the stock with no pad. I could not remount the original pad as this would have still left the LOP too long for me. So, I slipped the ShockEater Recoil Pad into a shooting vest and went to the range with the expectation my shoulder would not be in very good shape afterward. Boy! Was I ever wrong! The ShockEater pad worked wonderfully, saving my bicep and shoulder from the potential ravages of a raw, freshly-cut butt end of a 12 gauge over/under shotgun and some hard-hitting sporting clays loads...
I can’t compliment the recoil absorbing properties of the ShockEater enough!”

"All I can say is it flat-out works! ...Both for the range and the hunting field, the ShockEater pad is now part of my regular shooting kit. I can’t foresee a time when I’m carrying a shotgun I won’t be wearing one."

I had rotator cuff surgery last summer and did not know how I was every going to be able to shoot a shotgun again! Little did I know that a pad quite like this existed. The pad you sent over is fantastic!!! It fits my shirt pocket perfectly and I can take it out to wash the shirt and then put it back in. I hunted 37 days this winter and never once had a sore shoulder. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has any type of shoulder issue.”

"I am the guy who bought a ShockEater pad and shirt at the Harrisburg show. You sent the shirt to Santee, SC because I had left hog hunting before I could get it at home. Just want to say thanks for everything. I got the shirt and it worked great. I shot a hog and felt no recoil on my surgically repaired shoulder. The shirt and pad work very well together!!!! I would recommend it to anyone and your efforts to get me the setup were the best. Thanks again!!"

"Thanks for coming to the Youth Field Day this past weekend. I was nervous to see how my son would react to the recoil of his first shot, but with your product in the vest he was grinning from ear to ear. It’s safe to say we will be taking him shooting again!"

"Thank you for including me in your product testing. As a long time trap shooter, I must admit I was a little skeptical that the shooting pad wouldn’t increase length of pull. After a few hundred rounds with the 12 gauge last Sunday I was quite impressed. I didn’t notice any change in length of pull and couldn’t even tell that I had the pad in my vest! Best of all, I didn’t feel a THING all day and no sore shoulder on Monday. Thanks again!”

"I didn't want to go with one of those “mechanical monsters” to eliminate recoil, but found that with this ShockEater pad in my vest, I don’t seem to notice recoil when shooting, even with Super Handicap loads, seems to work miracles for me."
