I was always told that synthetic stocks help assorb recoil.
I've been told that on a number of occasions too but the simple math is that plastic is lighter than wood and with many synthetic stocks being hollow ot some point many of them are much lighter than their wood counterparts.

taking newtons laws into account it makes perfect sense that contrary to internet marketing, many synthetic stocks are in fact worse for felt recoil. of course there are exceptions to the rule like hogue's rubber overmold stocks.
