Looking for a little bit softer call......

Postby JC523 » Thu Sep 05, 2013 7:37 am

Hey all.....hoping someone might be able to help me out. I've been using an old Original RNT and an old full scroll Daisy Cutter for quite some time. I gave the Original to my buddy last year after picking up a Zink ATM. I have also added a RNT Mondo since last season. Right now, I'm looking for something a little softer to complement what I already have and can't make up my mind which one to get. I'm considering:

RNT Short Barrel
RNT Microhen
Echo (Not sure which model. I've never owned an Echo, but would like to try one.)

I'm also open to other suggestions.

Thanks for any and all help!!

RNT New Old Style would be my choice. Its a real fun little call to run. Doesnt take hardly any air and on no wind day ducks eat it up.

Echo Bois d arc timber! Softest call I've ever had and I love it.

Echo Timber and Ducklander Troublemaker are pretty quiet.

99% of my hunts I run an acrylic Daisy Cutter and a Hedge Old Style. They compliment each other perfectly. That Old Style is also my go-to call.

The softest call I personally have ever run was a LCC Punisher in Hedge :thumbsup:

Thanks for the info! I've started looking for a hedge or Bois d'Arc Old Style. I'm starting to find out that they are a little bit hard to find.

Go with the acrylic Old Style. I have one in acrylic and one in coco, and i prefer the acrylic. It seems to have a little better ring than the coco but still gets just as quiet.

An acrylic NOS was my quiet morning call for a few seasons. Loved how it ran except that I couldn't really jump on it and have the teeth to get a reflex response to pull wary birds back in line. When the Microhen came out, I gave it a shot, and the NOS quickly became just a truck call until I gave it to a SIL who admired it. The Microhen is simply a more versatile call in terms of both volume and tone range.

Fwiw, after retiring The NOS from the field I'd replaced the acrylic toneboard with a hedge one, the sound of which I liked even better. But it was, of course, still just as limited by the 1/4" bore.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
