    Shooting really well already?

    Choke isn't going to change that.

    They are made by the came company, so the quality will be the same, only a different design.

    I have used both, just because I like to try different equipment. The Kicks seems easier to clean the crud off.

    Also, I have used the gold-colored finished Comp N Choke and the silver stainless Comp n Choke and the gold-colored finish was a bit easier to clean than the stainless version.

    Still different designs the quality is hi on both I have both comp n choke is more popular around here but I prefer the Kicks both pattern excellent it seems to be the long parallel section in the extra long chokes. One time I grabbed the wrong 303 for trap got my sporting gun by mistake broke a 97 with a LM 15 th choke and the misses wernt the choke just shot over the top of 3 birds made a dent in my memory bank.

    I have tried them both in a Kolar and a K80 and I can tell you the Kicks smoke chokes pattern better than the comp n chokes. I don't know how but that is my findings.

    The chokes i have shot and patterened seemed to show the Kicks to be a better pattern. Been shooting them since 1994. Kicks were around before the comp n chokes as well. But they are made in the same building.

    I've had a Kicks Gobblin Thunder tube for close to 20 years. Its on a Browning BPS. Back then you had to take him your gun, he would measure your barrel diameter, ask you what size shot you were going to shoot, and then he would build the tube to match your gun and shot application. I will not hunt turkeys with anything else period..

    I also have a couple of the smoke series tubes but they were bought after he sold the business. Awesome products!!

    If you Chuck-UP a Smoke choke for clays or a High Flyer for birds you will be
    very happy with the results but , if you try a Comp-Choke ,you'll get a Charlie
    Horse from laughing at the Smoke-Balled targets they put-out .Anyway ,the
    Boswells would be glad you used thier Chokes .

    I have two sets of comp-n-chokes one for invector plus and one for Beretta, like them both, if you put a little grease on the tubes before you shoot them, it makes it easer for you to remove the black.

    Does anyone have an IC invector plus in the 12 gauge comp-n-choke SS they want to get rid of? My son is looking for one.
