    For those of you who have them and shot them, how do you find them to shoot? Do they shoot tight, more open than standard chokes? How do they pattern? etc.

    Excellent from a KX-5 in my experience. Very even and trap appropriate pattern. Good stuff.

    Norbert told me the same thing but he did say that because they were somewhat lighter, your gun would be a little faster swinging.

    I get very nice hits with the .030 Imp Mod for Caps and Singles...and the .015 Light Modified and .030 for Doubles. Jerry

    Somewhat lighter and your gun will swing faster?

    I would weigh the standard tube and the extended titanium tube- you might be surprised- as far as swinging faster-- I guess anything is possible but I am having trouble figuring that out

    If that small amount of weight matters- then moment arm matters also- because the moment arm is longer with the extended tube that will have an effect also

    I don’t think there is any measureable difference

    One thing though that will be lighter- your wallet- and by a lot

    i think gene is on the right track with this one. Titanium is 2/3 the weight of steel, so if the titanium choke has 133% the volume of the steel chokes (and it looks like it might), the weight will be the same.

    I've got a couple of each... they came with my gun in the deal - it was said they foul less than standard steel chokes. Since I had them, I use them, can't confirm the fouling theory.
