Does anybody know of a way to make calls stop sticking? Is there something you can spray on the reeds or something.Any help is appreciated

Try Rain-X the stuff you put on your windshield. Heard that works.

Mine stick all the time. They are cheap ones however. Does anyone know if expensive calls $100.00 or more stick less?

Shave your reeds it will help with sticking and sound a million times better, also I have heard the windsheild stuff helps out too, give it a try

I'll chime in as a Bagpiper...
We have four reeds to the intrument, and in the old days (actually like ten years ago) we used cane reeds for the drones. To open them up more, we would pluck out a hair or two and put them under the reed. that may help with a duck call, maybe a hair, or something really fine like that. I'll have to try it for myself. It should also lower the tone of the call.

I keep my calls underneat my outer coat and it keeps them from frosting.
I also tune mine...except for my expensive one that rarely sticks.

I also have heard of the rain-x stuff working. I dont know about going so far as to shave your reeds though. I hunt with several guys that use RNT calls of $100.00 and up, and they usually end up sticking more than the lower end calls. Just make sure on those cold days you keep them inside your jacket to keep them from freezing up..

Since I've switched to Doc calls, the sticking problem has dissappeared. The Gardner spit-tech calls are also supposed to be stick proof. I let you know when I order mine :yes:
