Anyone ever shoot a kicks choke tube? What did you think?

For those of you who are not familiar with this choke, its patternmasters main competitor. The duck commander shoots a kicks high flyer.

I know patternmaster makes a great choke tube but I really haven't heard a whole lot about kicks. As far as what the duck commander shoots here's my comment: He gets paid to endorse products! I'm sure it's a good tube but if you are basing your purchace on the fact that some tv hunter/personality is using it then their advertising program is apparently working. I'm not busting on you I'm just saying don't buy just because mr. X uses it on tv.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to do some research on kicks choke tubes. grin

how do you think the patternmaster choke tube came to be well known? Because some "mr. X" used it on tv and promoted it! If you dont know anything about a kicks choke tubes, then why reply? why would you say something like that, then follow it with a " Im not busting on you"? I have been hunting my whole life, and as a experienced professional western big game guide, I do alot of product reccommendations for clients and friends. At this point in my career/life I would hope I wouldnt purchase something or suggest someone to do so simply because some yoo-whoo on tv uses it. Hense the reason for my post. Its usually not a good idea to assume people are naive.

i bought a extended range kicks choke last spring and i like it alot. i have shot alot of clay piegons with it and live pigeons with it and it dusts them pretty good. and i never knew the duck commanders use kick's. a buddy of mine told me about it and how nice they were.

No need to get your panties in a bunch.

You asked a question that involved patternmaster, which I am familiar with so I replied.

If I thought you were naive I would have said "don't be so naive".

Maybe I mistook the tone of your question because it sounded like the duck commander using it was a major selling point. As a professional western big game guide I'm sure you've seen hunters come along with products that were touted by celeb hunters and wondered why they bought it. That's where I was coming from. I WASN'T BUSTING ON YOU!!!

Hence the reason for my reply.

I have had the kicks extended range, patternmaster extended,and also a Drake Killer for both my SBE2 and Xtrema.Patternmaster seemed picky on what shells you used. sucked if some others went on sale and they didnt pattern well. Then i went to the kicks. Very nice choke for the money. not at all picky as to what shell you are using either. Like others have stated it will smoke the clays and birds. I then did further looking into chokes. Found the Drake Killer. this choke is unbelievable. It is made specifically for your barrel. And when you get one you will know the difference right away. have had mine for one goose and one snow goose season and needless to say there are alot more birds in the freezer. Alot less cripples

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
