8 Best Choke Tubes for 2017

8 Best Choke Tubes for 2017

While there's no guarantee they'll make you a better shot, these 8 newly-designed shotgun choke tubes for 2017 are definitely worth a look.

Consistency is what pushes today's shotshell makers and the engineers behind highly-advanced choke tubes. Keeping shot patterns together longer is key, but we all have different opinions when it comes to killing ducks. Whether you crave knock-down power, advocate smaller pellets for uniform patterns, or bigger BBs for long range — there's a choke tube that's just right for you.

Here are 8 newly-designed shotgun choke tubes for 2017 that are definitely worth a look. Just remember, whether your shooting a highly engineered choke tube or the choke that came with your shotgun, it's all about getting the bead on the bird.

Hevi-Shot Hevi-Choke


American-made and backed for life, this aircraft quality 17-4 stainless steel choke was our choice to smash snows on-camera. Available in Mid-and Extended-Range for 12-ga. and ER in 20. The 20 ER paired with Hevi-Metal 2s or BBs is a death sentence on honkers. $60 | hevishot.com

Carlson's Cremator 

Years of research went into the Cremator lineup, which feature Triple Shot Technology (TST) to reduce pellet deformation for less flyers and devastating patterns with any ammunition. Lifetime warranty. $60 | choketube.com


Photo-3-Mojo-WIFP-170800-ELOD-009

Mojo Fatal Shot 

More handy work from Rob Roberts, who partnered with Mojo to design a choke based on computerized data to achieve optimal performance. The FS is a port-less tube that provides a consistent point of impact and requires no tools for changing chokes. $80 | mojooutdoors.com


Photo-4-Patternmaster-WIFP-170800-ELOD-008

Patternmaster Anaconda 

Modified uniform patterns crush birds, particularly when they can reach out to 50 yards. The Anaconda Mid Range (.715") harnesses gas from the shell being fired and applies pressure to the wad, creating a tighter pattern upon exit, keeping the shot string together longer. $60 | patternmaster.com

Photo-5-Kick's-WIFP-170800-ELOD-013

Kicks High Flyer 

Over a decade of performance and consistent bird-crushing patterns stand behind the High Flyer. The conical parallel design delivers quality payloads, and diagonal ports reduce felt recoil and muzzle jump Available in 10-, 12-, and 20-gauge for nearly any factory shotgun sold today. $70 | kicks-ind.com

Photo-6-Muller-WIFP-160800-E-LOD-013

Muller Waterfowl

Competitive sporting clays champion Jimmy Muller developed his choke tubes based on one thing: experience. Muller chokes are constructed of aerospace-grade aluminum with a ceramic Teflon infusion to make them lighter and cleaner. They will handle any type of waterfowl load you send down them and have 8 finger grooves for easy installation and removal. $125 | mullerchokes.com

Photo-7-TruGlo-WIFP-170800-ELOD-002

TruGlo Titan

Go from skeet, to doves to ducks and geese and turkeys with the Titan. It adjusts from cylinder to XX Full, so you never have to change out your choke. Compatible with all waterfowl loads, including Hevi-Shot. $100 | truglo.com

Photo-8-TruLock-WIFP-170800-ELOD-001

Waterfowl 3-pack

Be prepared for any situation any time with the Cylinder Bore (.000 constriction), Improved Cylinder (.010 constriction) and Modified (.020 constriction)  chokes. Cylinder and IC are great for teal and early ducks, then switch over to Mod late-season as birds skirt the decoys. $99 | trulockchokes.com
