The inserts on my duck calls are made from a hard bullet proof plastic resin known as PolyCarbonate. All inserts are pre-tuned before leaving my shop.
All Duck Call Inserts come in the option of single or double reeds. The colors include Black, Bourbon, Clear, and Smoke.
Double reeds are easier for new callers to blow. Single reeds are more versatile with what you can do with them but suggested for the seasoned caller.
My whitetail buck and doe bleat grunt tubes have what I can confidently say is one of the most realistic sounds of any grunt tube on the market today. This was also corroborated by Peter Fiduccia when he featured me in his latest book “The Shooter’s Bible Guide To Deer Hunting.”
Using reed material that is 25% thinner than any mass produced on the market allows the caller to “whisper” into the barrel without the sound sneaking up on you. This is clutch for the archer in the field that needs to communicate in a very intimate setting.
A grommet is pressed into the end of the reed creating what I like to call the audible anatomical difference between my wife and I. I have an Adam’s apple and she does not. Helping to create the authentic “click” in the voice of a buck and slightly less for a doe. The application of the reed is also held in place by a rubber grommet simulating soft tissue. As opposed to rigid plastic to plastic synthetic sounding connections.
The slate over glass pot call is probably the most common on the market today. It proves user friendly and extremely versatile with the large range of tone, volume, and authenticity. A glass surface friction surface however provides the same capabilities but at a much higher pitch. Not every bird sounds the same and may react differently to the sound of any call. Even on a day to day basis. All turkey calls are shipped with the proper conditioning materials for care in the field.
An open reed howler is extremely more versatile in the field as opposed to a closed reed call. With practice the caller will be able to manipulate an extremely larger range of tone helping you to adapt to the audible picture you’re trying to paint. Aggression, communication, location, or distress.
