simple question

Postby plainsman » Wed Dec 29, 2004 5:49 am

Hi guys, I'm new to this site and thought I'd start off with a simple question. What call or calls will always blow no matter how wet??? Single or double, it doesn't matter.Wasn't there a callmaker who promised his calls would always perform no matter how wet???I don't remember what Co. it was.

I spit too much too.

Cuttdown calls wont stick but I do not like the sound.

Giden makes a real nice call in a single reed and it will not stick no matter how wet, and sounds good too. Now I don't know of a call that wont freeze in the cold. Steve Cook the maker of Giden Game calls is a great person to deal with as well. $55 for a wood call $95 for acrylic give him a try he will do his best to make you happy. There are probabley others out there too.

If you get any call wet enough they will stick. I don't care what they say. My single reed and double reed got dunked the other day when I fell through the ice. Took about 5 minutes to get them to blow again. I'll believe it when I see it that a call is gauranteed not to stick.

KS

So you dropped your call into the ICE water and it froze "ice" I do not know of a call that wont do that. But since you own all calls you must be able to say that "all calls stick" for sure. I see the calls you have on your lanyard, and I am not surprised that they stuck. I know the calls you are blowing will stick for sure I have tried them. Have you tried the calls I have mentioned? I doupt it or you would be blowing high end acrylics probably. You are convince all calls stick from limited experience with cheap calls. I prostaff for a differant co. Giden does not pay me neither does cuttdown, and owe them nothing I simply bought a couple calls from each of them to try...... Gidens I like cuttdowns I do not. This fellow asked a simple question. I offered him some help from my experience as a caller. I have had the oppertunity to try many calls, and I still have not blown them all I would like to though. Of the calls I own Giden calls, and cuttdown calls are the best for not sticking do to moisture condensation. I do not own all calls though, I am sure there are others that blow well wet. Gidens you can dip it give it a little shake on the way up it will blow everytime. most of the calls that I own or have owned I can not say that about. Take my advice or don't but straight up calling me a liar when you don't even know is just wrong.:thumbsdown:

IT wasn't froze, and I do hunt with guys that have high end acrylics. I could be wrong but I think it is almost impossible for a call that was completely submerged to come up blowing. I would love to be proven wrong.

Out of all my calls, my Bois D'arc SB that was bored to DC specs is the only one that has yet to stick. My favorite call by far :getdown:

I got a new RNT acrylic for chirstmas, they run about $130- It will freeze just like my $20 calls. It is louder, crisper, and faster than most cheap calls though.

I would recommend blowing the Foiles Straight Meat Mallard when trying calls, it is great both high and low ends. :salude: Happy New Year everyone :salude:

Got one, a black & yellow to boot :getdown: However condensation sticks it up when the temp drops. Other than that, yes, it's a great call!!!!!

I've heard the same thing.....haven't tried it yet though. Wouldn't any water repellant work????
I'm in the works of getting my butt in gear to make a proto insert that I know will not stick. So....how do I get a mold made??? out of what material?????

I couldnt agree with more and im sorry Bret, but your wrong. All calls will stick if they get wet enough. Ill believe one that doesn't stick when i see it. Yes some calls wont stick very easily but they will stick so take it easy... :thumbsdown:

So what time are they suppose to show up?

Carefull fellas, Doc calls and Lares claim to be stick-proof.....I've asked around about these claims and haven't heard of one sticking yet. These 2 inserts are MUCH different than the "average joe insert" and it shows!!!!

well once again a guy who has blown all calls in all conditions I stand corected. If you were to find out I was right would you admit it. I really don't want to get into a fight over this topic because it just does not matter to me. I know most calls do stick some worse than others. I spit into a call as bad as anyone I have seen. I hate that about my calling but it is the way I am. I have searched for calls that will not load up on me. I have found a couple that will not I am still searching for others. I can tell a lot of you guys are younger guys, and that is very promising to our sports future. I hope you all do well in your calling. I am done with this topic.
