Franchi choke tubes vs extended tubes?

I am buying an Instinct L off a friend. It (I believe) comes with IC/M/F chokes. I see on the website you can order extended tubes, and though I didn't see them there, the website makes it look like I can order additional regular chokes (supplement the included with a Cylinder and IM.
Is there some advantage to the extended chokes (which would mean I'd be buying 5), or should I just buy the supplemental internal chokes if they're available?

Extended chokes do a few things:
1 -they add a little extra weight at the muzzle
2 - they offer some measure of protection for the muzzle from possible dings
3 - they make changing them easier and faster
4 - they are a safer way to determine which chokes you have in

All that said, only you can determine if any of that is worth the extra cost to buy new chokes. And a lot of THAT will depend on your intended use - lots of sporting clays? only bird hunting? something else?

And Welcome from Florida!
