JJ Lares Questions

Postby bhroberts1 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 9:19 am

Hello all

I would like to thank the DHC community for turning in me on to the JJ Lares call. I am glad I spent the money and got such a fine piece. As of right now I have the Hybrid which I purchased last year.

Question 1: Is there any reason to add an A-5 to the lanyard?

Question 2: How are the JJ Lares goose calls compared to a Foiles for ease of use (I am an extreme rookie on goose calling)?

Question 3: Am I going to get a different tone with JJ Lares wood calls, enough that I would add one to the lanyard?

Thank you,

BHR

Question 1: The A-5 is the loudest call Joe makes. If you are looking for something very loud, the A-5 is what you want. However, it doesn't quite have the low end of the Hybrid or T-1 IMHO. The T-1 and Hybrid are both plenty loud for what I do and can do everything I need a call to do. With that said, the A-5 has an awesome look. I hope to add a checkered black or ivory one real soon to my collection :yes: :yes:

I have no idea on question 2 as I have never run Joe's goose calls. I hope that changes soon though!

Question 3: Most of the "wood calls" have only a wooden barrel and acrylic insert. The insert, or better yet--the toneboard, is where the sound is coming from. IMHO, there will probably not be a huge difference other than the fact that wood calls look straight up sexy :bow: :bow: In fact, I should have a Olivewood/acrylic T-1 here today or tomorrow :yes: :yes: :hi: :hi:

Oh and as always, :welcome: to Lares Land!

Haha I agree with the above. Also with the goose calls I like the way mine runs but I'm not a big goose hunter. Runs similar to others ive tried but like I said I don't target geese just baught it to get it.

I don't notice much if any difference in the sound of a hybrid no matter what I is made of whether it is acrylic, wood, Micarta, or aluminum. Lares calls are just very consistent sound, not a bad thing.

Ben, I love the looks of that t-1. The barrel is a beauty!

Thanks tsaylor! Joe is a master when it comes to turning wood. I don't think I have ever seen a bad piece come out of his shop :thumbsup:
