In the exclusive video below, avid waterfowl hunter Matt Breuer of North Country Guide Service introduces the new Black Cloud with FLITECONTROL FLEX wad. For a decade, Federal Premium Black Cloud has been deadly on ducks and geese, and thanks to this new FLEX wad, it delivers improved pattern density and consistency through any shotgun choke (ported and standard).

OutdoorHub Managing Editor Dave Maas was one of the lucky few hunters who had the chance to test some samples of the new Black Cloud FLEX during October 2016, and as you can see in the pics below, it exceeded his high expectations.
