The Extended Range choke tube is now called GOOSE. The Long Range choke tube is now called DUCK. There is NO difference in choke due to COLOR of choke tube. Please RE READ first 2 sentences again. The ONLY thing that has changed is the COLOR, NOT THE CHOKE! Black matte, polished silver chrome, titanium are just differing types of offerings and through my investigations and reading blogs, the original black matte models had problems splitting and PatternMaster does not warranty the metal used or consequential damage done to said barrel. I have not read any BAD things happening with the polished or titanium chokes. When I purchased my Goose Code Black, I was thinking this is the LATEST technology and stronger metal and for less than 10.00 difference in price, better to get the best there is on the market. Please note....when using 3.5" shells use the Goose/Extended Range tubes as the longer tube is needed to grab the LONGER wad in a 3.5" shell. You can still use 3" and 2.75" shells with this tube!! The pattern is the same between the tubes from what I was told. These tubes are not as forgiving as factory chokes so there may be a learning curve to overcome when it comes to bird leads and timing, but when you hit a bird it is dead. I was able to talk to a factory rep and did my usual 100 hour investigations on the internet blogs. Most hunters love the PatternMaster chokes when it is all said and done. I still have 2 weeks left of the season to kill a bird with mine that I just got.
