    I like the 1" thick packmeyer old english decellerator http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/sto...TOR+RECOIL+PAD

    They are a bit heavy, but it's a classy looking pad.

    That said, I use a PAST magnum recoil pad on my shoulder when bench shooting, so the recoil pad is somewhat redundant. I can tollerate much stiffer pads in the field.

    I also use the Pacmeyer Decellerator pad on my 7mm rem mag and 375 H&H, they are effective.

    The limbsavers seem very soft and they take the sting out of a heavy recoil...
    But they also seem very sticky-rubbery. They tend to hang up on your jacket during a fast shouldering. And I wonder how they would hold up if you tend to beat the heck out of your rifle butt while out in the sticks...
