I really like the Echo Timber calls. I wish I still had one but like all things calls come and go in my collection. They are a softer sounding call and a pretty good hunting call for that situation. I know a lot of guys that only blow timber calls, and I find that I use a timber type call %60-%70 of the time when hunting. I think and this is just my ever so humble opinion....If you want a call for "when you get good" as you stated I would buy it in a single. I like the sound of that call so much better as a single, and if you are comited to learn the call and are going to work at it you should learn the single. If you are good with a single you can blow any double or single well.
Now if you want to just get good enough to kill a few ducks with as little effort put forth to learn as possible. You should probably start on a double, but latter should you decide to learn a single you may have to unlearn some things, learn some others, and forget about a few other things.lol

When students ask me what to do single or double...if they ask. I tell them this same spill.... to me it depends on what kind of person you are, and how good you want to be.

just my .02

oh oh oh I almost forgot befor eyou settle on a regular timber try an Echo XLT I think it stands for extra loud timber. I blew one the other day and I really liked it. It is very versital and easy to run. :thumbsup: :yes:

:thumbsup: great call. :withstupid: I agree with bret. both the Timber and the XLT are great calls. I've tried em both. unfortunately i only own a timber and not also an XLT.

i have a few Echo calls...huh. go figure. lol.

anyway, i am a big fan of the timbers. i have a double reed Poly that is nice and ducky and a good hunting call. i also use my single reed cocobola quite a bit. ANNNNND...i have an XLT. i really like the XLT for the extra volume i get out of it without needing to go with an openwater call.

lol..yeah, it is nice. my biggest problem this year has been too many nice calls and not enough time hunting. i don't like to carry more than 2 with me into the marsh...just too much crap on my neck.

but between the Echo's i have..the Rowdy DOA DT, and the Winglock i got this year...i just can't decide which one goes and which one stays.

i will say that the XLT has spent a fair ammount of time with me...just because it is one of the few i have with the extra volume.
