Default Waterfowl chokes

I've always used the factory chokes that came with the shotgun. I was looking at the Carlson's waterfowl 3 pack. Was curious what chokes you folks use. Thanks in advance.

I have a Carlson's light-modified and Briley improved cylinder. Both of them are far superior to the factory chokes in my Weatherby 20ga based on patterning tests. I'm a believer in after-market chokes.

For 410, 28ga, and 20ga usually something between cylinder and skeet for ducks. I haven't shot a 12ga in like 3-4 years, but I used to use a Light Modified with fast steel for ducks.

That Waterfowl choke set is great. You'll not regret it.

I know the Carlson boys personally. They're the real deal. Awesome people, and awesome product. That's what I shoot. I hit 48% more stuff with the chokes.

Factory IC choke with 3" #4 shell is hard to beat. I can't give you an opinion on extended chokes I have never had to use them or had reason. I kill ducks at 20yrds out to 40 yrds with no issues with that setup. I am also using 20 guage.
