Skeet is unlike Sporting Clays , in that in Skeet there is no need to be switching chokes during a round , the same choke(s) will work straight thru . Skeet & Skeet , or Skeet 1 & Skeet 2 if you're going extravagant .

At the beginning of extended choke tubes , the motivation was to allow for a more gradually constriction, and a longer parallel section prior to the muzzle , in the interest of less pellet deformation, hopefully there by more consistent patterns . The Original Win Choke ( copied by many mfgs ) was indeed pretty short, resulting in comparitively abrupt tapering down . Most newer choke tube designs have a longer length ( inside the bbl) to reduce those issues .

But in the modern era , the question mainly comes down to : Looks Ugly vs Looks Cool .

I would actually advise against a Skeet 2 choke. Skeet 2 is an old designation. Itís the same as light modified. Iíve never heard of someone using a Skeet 2 (or light modified) choke in all my years of shooting Skeet (38+ years) whoís serious about Skeet.

If you donít want to buy chokes and you have an improved cylinder or cylinder choke use that. Anything tighter than that and I would suggest buying Skeet chokes.

Rough Rules of thumb :

Skeet Choke = Same neighborhood aa Improved Cylinder , slightly on looser side, sometimes overlapping IC .

Skeet #1 = About midway between IC and Cylinder bore

Skeet #2 = About midway between IC and Modified

For skeet I use Trulock cylinder and skeet extended chokes with 1145 fps # 8 loads. Use the same chokes for sporting clays with 1200 fps # 8 shot, sometimes use Skeet and IC for longer shots and use 1200 fps 7.5 shot. You really need to pattern your gun(s) using different chokes and loads to figure out which does what.

I use Briley Extendeds for a couple of reasons....

Easy to change, usually without wrench. You always need a wrench for flush mounts.

Easy to identify the choke constriction. Don't have to remember how many slots are what choke. My Briley's are color coded and clearly marked on the visible portion. I carry Skeet, Imp. Cyl., Light Mod., Mod., and Imp. Mod., never really thought about a Full.

They pattern well.

....and as was mentioned, they do protect the muzzle if impacted.

For Skeet, I use a Skeet and a Improved Cylinder

P.S. I'm using them in Brownings... mostly a Special Sporting Clays, but also a Gold Fusion, and a Gold Hunter.
