Had a toxic goose call, and i hated it. Sent it back for a tune came back the exact same way it was. Wedge wasn't moved reed wasn't replaced. Needless to say, I will never own another. On the other hand, It would make a great party horn for a kids birthday party or something. that's an option since you probably won't even be able to give it away once you buy one.

now,now. When i got my toxic goose call i tried every model that mike had and with my calling style they where all high pitched. so i picked a call fit my hand well then mike shaved the reed a little at a time until i could get the low notes i wanted. Try sanding the reed a little, that one thing has helped me with all my calls. :thumbsup:

I had 6 toxics at one time. Paid $60 for all 6 on a no reserve ebay auction. The guts in all 4 goose calls required tape on the wedge. No clue if they were stock or not though. The less bored of the two duck calls sounded good to me but the band fell off. I think they had a good market target when they were just getting rolling and selling calls new on ebay for $50. Now the engraving is obnoxious and the price has doubled. To each their own I guess. I've run two different C & S diehard series calls and each one sounded great.

I have a old(er) Toxic QOK. I really like the call, and it sounds A LOT much better than my $25 Quackhead. So I'd have to disagree with whoever said they're comparable to a cheaper call. I can get really high, and really low with all the squeeks & chuckles I want to get out of it.

HOWEVER, My calls engravings are calm compared to the newer ones & I only paid $50 for mine... no where near retail. The engravings are attracting younger hunters, that's for sure. Take that however you'd like.

Now, would I pick a Toxic over a RNT Diablo or Daisy Cutter with the same price tag? Absolutely not. Again, I feel that these calls are a great call for $50-$70.

In the end, I'd blow on a call shaped like a dog turd if I was confident in it and the ducks came in feet down everytime I blew it. I'm willing to bet most of you would, too.

barkin up the wrong tree......that is going from A+ to a D......the engraving is horrible on Toxic and Mike is top notch.....sheeeet my G ma can punch digits in a machine and make a call....do not compare toxic to HANDMADE calls.....

Is "poured resin" not the same thing as "molded poly?"

No, one is poured and the other is injection molded.
