RIP-OFF ALERT: BRAIN CHOKES

Isn't it obvious? This is
"The only choke tubes in the World with the biggest breakthrough
in shotgun ballistics since the invention of choke" and "It
increases the effective surface of the pattern by at least 80%."
It is far from the much more modest but equally delusional claims
concerning overbored barrels, forcing cones, cryogenically treated
barrels, shot string, straight-rifled barrels, and so it goes. If you
really want to increase the effective surface of a pattern by
80%, a way to start would be be increasing payload by 80% and work up
from there. BRAIN chokes are the Pet Rocks of choke tubes . . .
except that Pet Rocks are cheaper and more fun.
You can only lie so many times about one product, but "Brain" has set a new record. What follows are exact Brain claims.
A) Are the best performing chokes in the World by far, increasing the effective surface of the pattern by at least 80%, regardless the shotshell charge (from light competition to super magnum), shot size or material (lead, steel, tungsten or other), wad design or material (plastic or felt) etc in both HUNTING and COMPETITION.
B) Offer greatly extended effective range , both closer and longer, compared to any other conventional choke tube of equivalent choke constriction. Unmatched versatility, complete confidence with less guesswork about the constriction you may need.
C) Are the only choke tubes in the World that can be used with steel shot regardless the choke degree including our BX (Beyond Extreme) of 14/10 / 0,056” constriction which is the tightest choke currently produced in the World, even with Magnum Steel BB's, yet delivering absolutely perfect patterns.
D) Eliminate the differences of bore diameters between barrels of the same make (model / manufacturer), since the Pre-Choking section constitutes a new entrance to the final choking, forming its own accurate “bore to choke” relevance.
E) Shorten drastically the shot string enhancing effectiveness.
A) In order to have a legit claim of "the best performing chokes in the World by far" they would have to be scientifically tested against all the other chokes in the world. There is no supporting evidence of any testing, much less vs. all the other chokes in the world. The notion of "effective surface" of a pattern, increased by "at least 80%" has no basis in fact or in reality.
B) There is no definition of "greatly extended effective range" nor any evidence that this is true.
C) This is either a lie, ignorance, or just plain incompetent slop. It is foolish to call a .056 inch constriction the tightest in the world, for there are scads of readily available turkey chokes available at .080 inch constriction, with card-shooting chokes available with .090 in. constriction. This is common knowledge to anyone familiar with choke tubes.
D) Of course differences between barrel bore diameters remain, as well as forcing cone differences, etc. The forcing cone is a choke, no news there at all.
E) There is no supporting evidence of any shot string shortening whatsoever. Nor is shot string relevant to pattern performance as a practical matter. Regardless, no shot string measurements are given: there is no evidence that they were ever done.
Certainly, it is reasonable for manufacturers of anything to present their products in the most favorable light possible: tastes great, less filling, it is the “real thing,” and choosy mothers choose it. Blatant fraud and intentional, flagrant serial lies in an attempt to steal money from consumers based on false pretenses is a different matter entirely.
