Lighter Recoil for Youth Shooters? Falcon Strike Recoil Pad

product reviews Aug 31, 2021

In a recent Shotgun Showdown, my son (9) chose a 20ga compact gun that he liked best. The only thing we didn't like about the shotgun was the amount of recoil. So in this video, we added a Falcon Strike hydraulic recoil pad to see if it helped reduce felt recoil and let him enjoy shooting his shotgun more.

FalconStrike makes some big claims about reducing felt recoil from a shotgun. 

Falcon Strike Claims:

  • 80% Less Recoil Energy
  • 35% Less Muzzle Lift
  • 25% Less Peak Force
  • 35% Less Rock Back Reduce Recoil

There's really no easy way to test these claims for accuracy, but I wanted to know if the Falcon Strike Recoil Reduction System significantly reduces the felt recoil? When my son chose which 20 gauge was best for him, the Franchi Affinity 3 won over the Winchester SX4 20ga. If you'd like to see why he made this decision, click here.

SPOILER ALERT - The Franchi had more recoil, but it was lighter and easier to operate for him. After installing this Falcon Strike, he gets to enjoy his lighter gun, AND enjoy the experience more with the significantly lesser recoil that the Falcon Strike offers. As you'll see, I took some shots on it as well, and man, is there a difference!!!

If you would like to put this awesome product to the test for yourself, or you know someone that could benefit from less felt recoil, click here! You won't be disappointed!
