ACCOKEEK, Md. â€“ Just six months since its introduction, Benelli's Super Black Eagle 3, the third incarnation of the company's revolutionary, flagship shotgun, continues to garner praise throughout the hunting world. In addition to high demand at retail stores and rave reviews from hunting's most respected publications, the new Super Black Eagle 3 also won Shotgun of the Year Award at the recent Industry Choice Awards.
The Industry Choice Awards, presented at a banquet in conjunction with the Firearms Industry Team Challenge at Rockcastle Shooting Center, recognized innovation and creativity in new-product development across a host of outdoor categories ranging from optics to ammunition. An evaluation and voting process to determine the winner of each category included unbiased, hands-on, multi-day testing and evaluation by a panel that included a mix of firearms retailers, distributors, professional shooters, gunsmiths, law enforcement, military personnel, outdoor media recreational shooters.
The new Benelli Super Black Eagle 3 continues the product line's legacy of defining what the ultimate waterfowl shotgun should be. More than two dozen new, unique features were incorporated into the Super Black Eagle 3, features that make the shotgun even more reliable, easier to use and more comfortable to shoot. Designed specifically to perform flawlessly in the harshest waterfowl-hunting environments, the Inertia-Driven SBE3 features larger controls for easier operation with gloved hands, reduces felt recoil with an enhanced ComfortTech 3 stock and an Easy Locking bolt system for absolute reliability.
"We're proud to receive this award and it's an honor to be recognized by the industry for the years of hard work that have gone into the development and launch of the Super Black Eagle 3," said Benelli USA Vice President of Brand Marketing Tim Joseph. "From the beginning, our goal was to build nothing less than the world's finest waterfowl shotgun. The overwhelmingly positive response to the SBE3 says we've succeeded."
