Benelli Nova Gel Recoil Pad - Left Hand puts more shock-absorbing material against your shoulder to spread recoil and minimize shock. There are no hard inner structures that push against you. The soft, comfort-fitting gel recoil pad takes the sting out of magnum loads like no conventional recoil pad can. The pad is shaped to conform to the contours of the shoulder for maximum contact. The ergonomics of the gel recoil pad are so carefully engineered that there are separate versions for left- and right-handed shooters.
