Thanks Matt!  I took some time off trying to make some money.

 I have tried the a400,  im just saying for me it felt a bit cumbersome, like a tad bit bulky, I guess the best way to describe would be , well you know how the ol' model 12 feels right? thats how my extrema2 feels and the a4000 reminded me of my Mossy when I shoulder it. but it is a very sweet gun hands down.

looks like another good year for ducks, all I can hope for now is that it gets cold this year in the Atlantic flyway. Good luck and be safe.............I dont want to heare a story of a guy out west that was sweating to the oldies in his duck blind = )

I own a Benelli Super Black Eagle II and a Benelli Vinci. Now the Super Black Eagle II is my "guest gun" and my Vinci is my workhorse. I absolutely love my Benelli's, both of them. I've used my Vinci as a paddle in freezing water then shot ducks with it a half hour later. I think that the Vinci is slightly more ergonomically and is extremely easy to break down if needed for some reason. It has never jammed on me and is smooth as warm butter. My only question to you is why get a "super"? 3 1/2 inch shells are too much, I never shoot them anymore, 3 inch is more than enough.

I Like my SBE 2. 

And I like what 3 1/2" loads do to big honkers.

whew, id say a cointoss. SBE II is an awesome durable gun and the abuse it will withstand has been proven in the field over and over. however, the vinci is nice and convenient when it comes to taking it apart. very simple. id go with the one that comes to your shoulder perfectly every time. if they both shoulder nice, then flip a coin or heck buy both!!! lol

I want to be able to shoot 3 1/2's if needed. Wouldnt ever really need it but I like the fact that if i do decide to shoot 3 1/2's i can.

I have an SBEII and M1 Super90.  Both guns can be taken apart and put back together withing 5 minutes in the field.  I neither shoot 3 1/2" but got such a good deal on it and couldn't resist.

I completely agree. I've owned my Vinci for a while and haven't had a single issue with it...  cold or hot weather. I also agree with just getting a regular as opposed to the super. but that's just a preference. i don't use 3 1/2. I keep to 3 inch whether it's turkeys or ducks.

I just traded in my M2 on SBEII in Max4 HD love it shoulders just like my M2 which I loved but it had a 24" barrel which I thought was a bit short and I wanted the camo protection. I personally don't like the look of the Vinci myself but it seems to be a really nice gun I shouldered it and was also deciding between the 2 guns but lie the SBEII better either way I think you will not regret it. I am guessing by now you have purchased one, which one did you end up with?
