i own 3 olt dr-115 double reeds. i've used the same one for 15-20 years now and it has a slight crack at the tip of the blowing side. it holds up to any weather and i never had to break the others out yet. i also have never replaced the reed. i bought buck gardener,big guys best,duck commander,flextone,primos,haydels,iverson ($175),stratavarious ($150) and many more. i bought two of each of these other calls over a 20 year period and i don't use any of them. the strat and iverson sound like a tin can but they cost the most. the rest were okay but they still squeel when wet and don't sound ducky. thanks for the website.
I love the fog and rain!
