Choke tubes for snow geese

I'm hoping to go snow goose hunting next year and i'm really interested in buying the kicks high flyer or the kicks vortex. I shoot a lot of black cloud through my shotgun, so i'm leaning more towards the vortex. I want to know if i should purchase the mod, full, or x-full. I want this for snows, and long range goose and duck. I shoot a benelli super nova

I will tell you that buddy of

I will tell you that buddy of mine that shoots along of Black Cloud, he bought one the kicks choke tubes and had very bad results with it.   He took it out hunting without patterining it first and had a misersable day of shooting.  He went and then patterened it and the pattern was completly blown out.  If I was gonna shoot black cloud I would get a choke tube designed for it.  I use a Pattermaster in all my gun and it work flawlessly.

Was he using the high flyer

Was he using the high flyer or the vortex. The vortex is made strictly for black cloud. Just wondering. I'm pumped for this snow goose hunt and I want to be able to get some. The only snow geese i've ever seen are the few that fly with the canada here in november.

Oh my bad I had forgotten

Oh my bad I had forgotten that the Vortex was designed for Black Cloud.  Hes was using the High Flyer in full.  He still uses the choke tube just switched to that new Super fast steel from Remington and hes had had real god results.  Sorry for my cinfusion.

How far is he swatting geese

How far is he swatting geese with the full, i was trying to decide whether to get the full or x-full. I want to shoot far, but not blow my pattern.

I beleive he was shooting them at the 40 yard yard and like I said he was getting no pattern at all until he switched to regualr steel loads.
