absolutely love mine! Can't wait to actually use in in the field in 2 and a half weeks. My neighbors will probably be happy about that too!

I am driving people nuts sitting out here calling outside the living trailers on base. I am still waiting to see some middle eastern mallards with turbins and bombs on their wings come soaring over the horizon to my call and land in the endless sand lake they call desert. Ugh, get me home!

Just one? Most guys say they will only buy one Lares...we see how that usually turns out :lol3: :lol3: :fingerhead: :fingerhead:


Oh just because I dont have an A5(yet) doesnt mean I only have one Lares call....

I have a t-1 that will be hitting my doorstep tomorrow, a hybrid, a speck, and a Canada :yes:

Huntfish12 wrote:Alright, Im late to the party but Ive had my sights set for a Lare's call for a while now. Theres some things I dont know about them though. Whenever I pull the trigger Im going to go with the Hybrid. My question is, is it a single reed call? Are all his calls singles? Ive always run doubles, J-frame to be exact, and Ive always been reluctant to jump over to a single. But his calls sound so damm good!! Im fed up with buying all these junk calls and having them stick on me, that I need to buckle down and do it to it.
The reed lengths..What will the longer sound like comapred to the shorter? More raspy, less? More squeal, Less?
Dog Ears..Fill me in, Im clueless.
Small bore, larger bore..Same as above.

Im sure this has been covered more then once somewhere in the past so I apologize if this is a common question. Please Help.


Welcome to the party!! Late or not, once you go Lares you never go back!! lol

All of his calls are single reed. These calls require a different, cleaner air presentation(Less grunting, more control of pressure). I say you call Joe or Bret and talk with them as they can go over everything with you. They are some of the nicest guys around.

Hurry up and buy a Hybrid! They hold their value very well.

Cheers!

Just got off the phone with Joe. I had originally intended just to talk to him about the differences between his calls and then think about it for a while, but now a black checkered A-5 is headed my way. :lol3:

I have an all acrylic one and a wood barrel/acrylic insert one. Honestly, the wood barrel doesn't change the tone. The insert is where the sound is coming from but the wood ones look stunning. I'll be running mine in World Live Duck tomorrow :thumbsup:

Thanks! I have an Olivewood T-1. The picture is awful...Olivewood is much darker in person. Send me your cell number and I can send you a better photo :thumbsup:

The T-1 and the Hybrid have the same exact insert, toneboard, and wedge assembly. They are dimensionally identical as well as interchangeable. The only difference between the two is the barrel. The difference between the barrels affects the sound characteristics negligibly.

I have both and I find that the only difference is the amount of pressure needed to run it. Also I can not make it whine as much as I can with my hybrid.

Well, Gang. Here is my Lares collection so far. Considering I got my first one last month(and if you can maybe tell, I am a loyal Lares man now) this is not a bad start! :yes:

Just got my A-5. Love it. :thumbsup: I'm liking the 1.365 reed the best. I've heard that the Lares calls require a different style but the only place I notice it is on the cuts and chuckles.

What is this "different" blowing technique with a lares call?? I hear how good people talk about them sounding but also hear you have to blow them a certain way...? This is hanging me up on my decision to either go with a lares hydrid or an rnt original/mvp.

Cleaner air and less voice than you put in other calls. Takes a couple weeks to get use to them.

The only real difference I have noticed is on the bottom end. It doesn't take much to get the reed moving so a little more control is required to make deeper sounding cuts and chuckles. For higher pitch, squeaky cuts and chuckles I use what was my normal technique.

I still add some voice when I blow my A5. I like a real deep, boss hen sound.
