    Pattern Master Choke Tubes

    Anyone here have first hand experience with the Pattern Master choke tubes. Do they really improve patterning, reduce shot string lengths and thereby reduce cripples getting away?

    I have one, it does what it says. Takes a bit of getting used to, i did a lot of missing when i first got mine as there is less room for era. Certainly less cripples and the cripples are easily dealt to at further range on the water which is a big benefit on a huge pond that i shoot

    As PerazziSC3 said. I did a pattern test with a standard choke of the same size at 30m and there was a noticeable difference. Take note that you cannot run Black Cloud through them or it will root it. There's a warning on that in the paperwork.

    I run a full for steel. Bloody tight for small pond shooting but good for reaching the escapees with the 3" mags. I also run lead through it as well as a universal choke.
