Inflex Technology – Recoil Pad Technology
The Inflex Technology recoil pad is the most comfortable, effective pad available. That’s because Inflex Technology is more than a mass of recoil absorbing material, the innovation is engineered into the pad. Underneath the material, an internal skeleton has been designed using the concept of directional deflection. When a Browning with the Inflex recoil pad is fired, the pad collapses, but instead of simply moving to the rear, directional ribs pull the comb down and away from your face for even greater shooting comfort and faster follow-ups.
Inflex Technology is on several Browning rifles and shotguns. The videos shown below explains the system on an A5 shotgun and Browning X-Bolt rifle. The same principles apply to the other Browning guns fitted with Inflex.
The new Inflex II Technology recoil pad is the next generation of the most recoil absorbing pad available. A softer new outer material provides even better recoil absorbing performance and is super slippery to prevent snagging on clothing when shouldering. Internal directional deflection construction guides the comb down and away from your cheek for greater shooting comfort and faster, more accurate follow-up shots.
