The “Junior Gear Guide” in Junior Shooters Magazine is always a great spot to hear honest product feedback from some of the toughest critics – kids. We appreciated the opportunity to hear their thoughts in this summers issue (Volume 24 / Summer 2016). The ShockEater® Recoil Pad received reviews from two up and coming sportsmen who have quite a lot of shooting experience considering being only 10 and 13 years old. While the full reviews go into much more detail, their final thoughts make us proud to offer this product and continue our focus on youth creating positive experiences with the shooting sports.
“Even in my youth, I have shot a variety of different types of firearms with and without the ShockEater Recoil Pad. I have noticed a substantial amount of difference when i started using the recoil pad and I will continue using this product in my junior shooters competitions. Thank you ShockEater for the reduction of the recoil while shooting and making it more comfortable to do what I love.” – Brody (10)
“Using this pad made shooting much more enjoyable and helped me last longer before I became sore or tired. I would definitely recommend this pad to others.” – Tyler (13)

Shooting Industry Magazine features the ShockEater® Recoil Pad and Shooting Shirts in their May issue. Lisa Parsons-Wraith’s popular column entitled “Arms & The Woman” is a go-to resource on trends, issues, and products impacting female shooters. This month Lisa discusses how shotgun sports continue to be a driving force in attracting women to shooting sports as she reviews a number of guns and gear to improve the shooting experience.
In her section on “Recoil Tamers,” Lisa highlights our gear along with compatible shooting vests designed specifically for lady shotgunners.
“ShockEater is a super energy-absorbing visco-polymer material using what the company calls Nano-Poly technology. Basically, the material stays soft and viscous until the shotgun impacts it. Then, the material bonds long enough to protect the shooter from recoil, and afterwards the bonds release and it turns viscous again. It’s amazing science and the result is a thin pad that doesn’t affect length of pull, yet lessens felt recoil. Because the pad constantly reshapes, it can be used with a variety of guns.”

After seeing us at the SHOT Show this year; David Draper, Field Gear Editor for Shooting Sportsman selected the ShockEater® Recoil Pad as a featured product for their July/August issue. Check out his thoughts on our product as well as other top new products from the 2015 SHOT Show in this issue.
“How something so thin can absorb so much recoil is beyond my scientific ken, but I don’t have to understand the Nano-Poly technology to feel how good the ShockEater consumes a long guns kick… because it is flexible it conforms to any shoulder from smaller builds of young shooters to larger adults looking to minimize the effects of recoil.” – David Draper

Outdoor writer Bill Miller, shares his thoughts on the impact of recoil in shooting, along with his personal review of the ShockEater® Recoil Pad. Below is an excert of the article – Full article can be found HERE.
“It’s safe to say more first-timers are permanently put off shooting by excessive “kick” than any other factor. Those of us who stuck it out are smart to take every opportunity to minimize recoil for the sake of both our health and our technique. Bad shooting habits are unavoidable when you’re subconsciously anticipating a punch in the shoulder every time you pull the trigger. If you’re thinking about recoil, you’re not thinking about breaking the next target.
There are many ways to reduce recoil that can be used in combination where appropriate. Shoot the lightest reasonable loads. Go to a smaller gauge. Use a gas-operated semiauto. Acquire a gun with a recoil-reduction system built into it. Shoot a heavier gun. Add recoil pads. Have the gun custom-fit to your build and shooting needs. This list goes on.
But the easiest step is to simply place a good pad between your shoulder and the buttstock of the gun you’re shooting. The problem with those pads has always been that they increase the length of pull, unless you have the stock shortened to accommodate. It’s a hassle and an expense.
Well, I’m now a proud believer in a new recoil pad called the ShockEater. It’s just eight millimeters thick and weighs only 1.4 ounces—that’s less than a 12 gauge hunting shell. The ShockEater fits easily into the pad pocket on your favorite shooting vest or hunting jacket. You can even use double stick tape if you want to try it out on your t-shirt. Any way you use it, the pad is so thin it does not appreciably change length of pull…” READ MORE
