If you could only buy one new duck call this year, and money was no object what would it be?

I'd buy one of mine, but then again I don't have to buy one.....look at the maple burl/walnut call...as close to the perfect hunting call as I've gotten....in my opinion that is.......

KO- Do you have any sound clips of your single reed? Does it get pretty loud?

Great choice Steve I like that call a lot.

I still have not made up my mind what it would be, but that might be the one.

well I've already got 2 new calls this year. A RNT Daisy Cutter and a RNT Timber a few days ago, but I guess one more wouldn't hurt. I think I'd like a Zink xr-2

I bought an echo open water call today. I am very impressed. Its easy to blow and sounds damn good. I dont think you can go wrong with most echo's or RNT's.

I would have to agree. The echo timber call would be my first choice.

Duck would be a Lares A-5 which I'm going to buy with my tax returns so I guess it would have to be the GK Miner call. Then again having Doc Hull custom make a Stabilized wood would be awesome too, oh you said only one.

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I've acted on my wish!

I'll have a Zink Power Hen tomorrow...

I traded for a Zink XR-2 a couple of weeks ago and it has prompted me to get off the fence and buy the Power Hen. The XR-2 blows unlike ANY other double-reed call I have ever used. It sort of takes you by surprise the first time you blow it, but soon you realize just how much like a duck it sounds. It isn't a finesse call, and you aren't going to get too many 'sound effects' out of it, so some might not like it. But if you want to sound JUST LIKE a mallard hen, it is one heck of a call.

I've got a Zink SR-1 goose call and, for me, it was just different than every other short reed call I'd ever used. The XR-2 was different too. Now, after pumping some people for info on the Power Hen, I'm satisfied that I will once again be tickled pink with a Zink call. If you look at the calls Zink puts on the market, and the way he talks about and blows his calls, you can't help but notice that he is all about REALISM. No hype, no gimmicks, no contest stuff, just about sounding like the real thing. I'll let you know what I think about the Power Hen, but from what I've learned I think I'll once again be impressed.

:thumbsup:

I am afraid I have acted on more than one of my wishes. I have bought two customs since Christmas. I am glad my wife is understanding. Plus she got me two for christmas. I picked up a fowl language used and another river mallard acrylic real nice calls those river mallards. Boy my collection is growing I probably should put a few up for sale soon.
