Mojo Outdoors – Fatal Shot
Show up to the party with these on your gun and the guys will know you know what you are doing. We have murdered coyotes with these at extreme range; if they can kill a big predator, that honker has no chance! A joint effort between shotgun patterning kingpin Rob Roberts and MOJO resulted in a series of short-, mid- and long-range chokes waterfowlers can trust. Dubbed the Fatal Shot Series, this lineup of chokes was created using computerized pattern analysis machines combined with years of choke-building experience. Helping you get the most out of your shotgun, the Fatal Shot produces excellent patterns with all types of loads, eliminating the need for toting several chokes to the field. Made in the USA from 17-4ph stainless steel, all Fatal Shot tubes can be changed without a choke tool.

Browning Goose Invector – DS Goose Band Extended Choke
Marrying muzzle-end threads and thin-wall construction, Browning’s Goose Invector-DS Goose Band Extended Choke tube will help you wreak more havoc on fowl this season. This innovative design creates a longer, more gradual taper, which produces dense shot patterns that tighten more consistently in scaled steps. The result is more pellets on target, which leads to fewer cripples and fuller freezers. The choke is standard on Browning A5 and Citori 725 models and will work with all Browning shotguns designed for Invector-DS use.

Kick’s Industries – High Flyer Camo
Crafted for those that crave feet-down action, Kick’s High Flyer chokes are manufactured from stainless steel and feature a new camo finish. Designed to work with steel and non-toxic loads, this choke is offered in a fearsome foursome — improved cylinder, modified, full and x-full—to give you a full range of options. Diagonal ports save shoulder abuse and reduce muzzle jump, meaning you can get back on target and pull more doubles and triples. Camo chokes are available in 12-gauge only, but black finish High Flyer options can be had by 10-, 12- and 20-gauge shooters.

Patternmaster – Code Black Goose
Great products never go out of style, and this is the case with Patternmaster’s Code Black Goose. Designed a decade ago, this killer is a favorite of waterfowl hunters and guides around the world. On average, Pattermaster outfits 12,000 Code Black Goose tubes to outfitters and guides each year. Why? Guides shoot last, and they want a choke that produces a long-range killing pattern. Testing by Patternmaster puts the killing range of this choke at 70 yards with standard steel. This is accomplished through a Stud Ring design that stops the wad and allows the payload to leave the barrel in a uniform fashion.

Carlson’s - Cremator
The legend lives on. Ready for wetlands and fields and offered in ported and non-ported models, Carlson’s Cremator choke tubes have been the demise of countless ducks and geese. Triple Shot Technology (TST) reduces pellet deformation, eliminates flyers and promises denser patterns. A 25 percent longer parallel section and no-wrench-needed installation and removal sweeten the pot. Choke options for 12- and 20-gauge shotguns come in three models: Close, Mid and Long Range. Carlson’s all-new 3-Pack set includes all three options inside a protective case.

Rob Roberts Gunworks – T3 Triple Threat
We’ve been running these ever since Tony Vandemore turned us on to them nine years ago. Designed by the master, Rob Roberts, the T3 was made to put pellets on target and topple birds on the edge of your normal effective range. Safe with steel, exotic non-toxics and lead shot, the T3 spent years in the lab before being released to the public. Roberts wanted to make sure everything was just right, and now, using the most advanced technology available, this tube hits the sweet spot. The T3 is made from 17-4ph stainless steel right in the good old USA.
