I've been an exclusive RNT guy for 17+ years...and I mean EXCLUSIVE! I owned NOTHING else. But after meeting David St. John from ECHO this past hunting season and spending hours sitting at a duck camp kitchen table with him talking calls and hunting, he converted me when no one (including myself) thought that could ever happen. He is one of the friendliest, most humble guys I've ever met. It took me a few hours at that table to even put an ECHO up to my lips. But by listening to the calls and a lot of peer pressure from my buddies, it happened. RNT is great...they have the history to back that up. But here's the way I explain & have explained my conversion to ECHO:
--I hear a guy (in the distance) out hunting who is good on a call and they are using an RNT...I say, "man, that guy can really blow a duck call".
--Same scenario, but this time the person is using an ECHO...I say, "is that a duck or are there hunters over there?'
--Lastly, what converted me? David St. John and the kind of guy he is. If I'm a call maker and have my own business making calls, he is the mold of the type of person I would want representing my company. Mr. Dunn, you should be proud to have him on your team. OH, and he's damn good on a call too.
Here's my "just started" collection of ECHO (excluding the call on the far right). Rest assured...it's gonna grow. So look out DBishop! HA!
