Anyone try a Rolling Thunder Hybrid???

Postby ARduckcwby » Fri Aug 23, 2013 4:52 pm

I saw a rolling thunder hybrid on their site, and kinda interested me.

Just want to get some opinions from some of you folks who have tried one.

I've got one...It's a pretty good little call...I'd recommend one before the easy bark if you are new to cutdowns.

I've never used a cut down style call. Will the RT hybrid get down low like the description says? Does it take a lot of air?

It's not as loud as a typical cutdown and it takes less air, I prefer a true cutdown but the hybrid is a good little call. I can get any cutdown to get low, but that's just me...

Cool, thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to go try on out.

By the way, I've seen some of your videos, and you are pretty darn good on a cut down.

Thanks, I just got done blowing on that hybrid and it don't take any less air than my other cutdowns...It's essentially a very heavy cut with a .10 mil reed...Not trying to turn you away...it's a good call. But it pretty much runs like a lower volume cutdown...air is about the same.

The Hybrid is a much lighter call in my experience. I've probably put air through a dozen or so screwing around Spencer's table at a show. The 45 is lighter than an original and I'd place the Hybrid as lighter than the 45, but certainly heavier than the Easy Bark. I can break all of the cuts over except for some of the heavier tuned Originals. I've come across an Original or two that I just could not get up, but my brother could.

Volume is a function of caller ability, assuming a decently tuned call. There are calls that are easier to get lower, but I've watched more able callers than myself take heavily tuned BSODs and do with them whatever they wanted to up, from taking them down to a whisper to dern near ringing them.
