    Time for a new recoil pad

    Morning everyone. Many years ago when I bought my Sako 75 Finnlight, and after my first trip to the range with it, I quickly decided it needed a decent recoil pad. So on went an R3 which has done well. But over the years it has become quite sticky and collected quite a selection of twigs and grass. Time for a new one! My rifle is prone to excessive muzzle jump under recoil. Does anyone know of a pad that may help with the vertical movement? Limbsaver advertise that their's incorporate anti muzzle jump technology, anyone had first hand experience? Or other tips?

    In my experience, saying please results in better responses to requests.

    I appreciate you are new to the forum, but manners are universal.

    Thanks for that Maros. I don't think Ross has a bed, in fact I don't think he even sleeps. Do humour sucking vampires sleep???

    I've suggested a jandal, and if Dazz doesn't stop being nasty I'm going to wander out into the workshop and ask how he is finding the time to be posting on the interwebs.

    I think you're mixing up recoil pads for stalking boots

    Makros, do you have a limbsaver on a rifle? If so do you notice a difference in muzzle jump? assuming that was a problem.

    A section of Cavallino tyre also does as a ‘pad’ but is piss poor at soaking up the kick.

    Limbsavers are ok but they can melt if the cleaning solvent gets at em Kickeez I found are better and don’t brake down. Hope that helps.

    I just had a look at them online. The All Purpose pad looks like something that may help. It doesn't curve away at the top like a lot of them do. I'm trying to move the fulcrum point up as high as possible. The Sako 75's have a large amount of drop from the barrel axis.
