Default Choke tube for Benelli

This past weekend I shot my Benelli Nova, this is the
first year I want to use it for Turkeys.
With various loads, with an Undertaker tube my results
weren't what I expected. I fact I was very disappointed
with the Undertaker.
So, does any out there use a Benelli Nova?
And what tube do you use with it?
The pattern deteriorated quickly past 25 yards.

I have a Nova and also tried the Undertaker and was very disappointed. I also tried a couple of other chokes and settled on the ported TruGlo. I shoot 3.5 inch Winchester #5 and get an excellent pattern out to 40 yards. It also patterned very well with the 3 inch shells. There might be better combos out there but this one works well for me. FYI, I also use the HiVis adjustable sights.

I use a Kicks choke and shoot Winchester #5's 3inch. Popped one last year at about 40 yards. I don't usually take shots at that distance, but I had just purchased the gun and had done some extensive patterning and knew it was within range. The bird was passing and moving away. I will stick to closer shots but it's nice to know I can if I need to.
