Re: Non Skid Deck Pads
If by 'pad' you're referring to the Treadmaster style of nonskid, I'd recommend against it if for no other reason that one day it will need removing and that's literally a major pain.(read back, knees, blisters, etc - don't ask how I know). It's also rather costly and a bit heavy looking (to my eye)
If you need strategic spots on common step points there's some pretty good self adhesive nonskid tape in various widths and colours - however there's some bad product out there too. 3M seems reliable.
If it's a full deck re-do on your nonskid the product Kiwi Grip gets pretty solid reviews from users.
