You know its hard to argue with someone about what they like, I mean I like blonds with big juggs, but you might like brunettes with big ones. I think it is like an evolution. Every one starts with a Duck Commander, then probably a haydells or buck gardener and so on. I have found that as I get older I want the best stuff. So I tried all of the above and the then I went to acrylic, I know why spend the money. Like I said I want the stuff that is the best and will perform when I need it to. So the money was not an option. I did research, looked at all the acrylic calls and RNT kept coming up, world champions etc... So I bought the originial and now I have the Daisy Cutter. These calls have not failed me yet, my buddy (He blows the short barrell, RNT) and I have been more successfull this year with these calls then in any other year with those other calls. I know it is the caller more then the call but I like that my acrylic does not change pitch with the changes in tempature. So that is my two cents worth. Good luck.
