The ShockEater® Recoil Pad is the latest advancement in energy absorption and recoil dispersion. It keeps you shooting longer, while increasing accuracy, comfort, and consistency with your long guns.

Made with proprietary Nano-Poly™ technology, the ShockEater Recoil Pad is designed to reduce peak felt recoil without increasing length of pull or altering appearance. At only 8 mm thick and 1.4 ounces in weight, it provides superior shock absorption in a form that is lighter and thinner than any foam or gel can provide.

The ShockEater Recoil Pad is conformal to the shoulder area, supporting proper gun fit and improving pitch and toe angles at the butt-stock. This combination of unique fit and absorption properties allow for maximum comfort and reduced felt recoil. More comfort, less pain means hitting your target with greater consistency.  The ShockEater Recoil Pad is compatible with many of the leading shooting vests and shirts, making it the optimal accessory for a variety of shooters from first timers to seasoned veterans.


ShockEater Compatible Gear

Note: Not designed for Beretta, Eddie Bauer, or Orvis vests. Pad can be used with these brands, but must be secured or pinned within pocket as garments from these brands have oversized pockets.

All logos and trademarks are property of their respective owners.


To install, simply insert the ShockEater Recoil Pad into the shooting pad pocket on the inside of your vest, shirt, or jacket with the flat side against your body. The ShockEater® logo should be on the bottom and facing out. You are now ready to “Eat the Kick” and shoot more comfortably than ever before. Remove the recoil pad from the garment before dry cleaning or laundering.

    Great product and very exact fit with the Wildhare Vest , and the shockeater performance tee (I use this combo primarily for then you get the benefit regardless of what outer ware is used) .  Quality product great for sporting clays session . Now I can't blame the recoil , must be the gun:)!Save your shoulder, improve your shots with a ShockEater recoil pad. Plus it doesn't really affect length of pull.

    I have a bad shoulder and wanted a LH Wild Hare Heatwave Vest w/ Shockeater pad for an upcoming shoot in California. I needed it in 7 days so I called to see it was possible. The owner Jack answered and spent 45 mins educating me about the hockeater product and confirmed I would receive my order in time. Received it in 4 days and what an awesome difference the shockeater made. Its thin profile was comfortable and absorbed all recoil as hoped. Will definitely be recommending shockeater products and Gamps topnotch customer service. Thank you, HUD

    I was getting ready for an Argentina Dove Hunt and came across this product. I wasn't sure at first but decided to buy a recoil pad and a few shirts for my trip. There was a small delay in shipping my order, when I emailed the company, I didn't receive a generic email back, I received a phone call from the owner apologizing for the delay and he took care getting my order to me. That's the kind of customer service more companies need! After shooting well over 1000 rounds my shoulder felt like new and I was ready to keep going, while my buddies wanted to quit. I couldn't be happier with my purchase! I will definitely use this for future hunts and shooting events.

    Works Amazingly & is NOT too thick adding extra length. Most Importantly ShockEater/ Gamp Sports has USA customer Service that speak clear American English & reply to emails. This is NOT common in our world & totally worth it to have Client relations when needed.

    Pad is amazing. Low profile has a negligible change to how you shoulder your gun. Tried two shirts and my personal preference was to have the pad in the shooting vest/bird bag. Seemed to work better that way. Great product overall!
