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?
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
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
In fact, I should have a Olivewood/acrylic T-1 here today or tomorrow
Oh and as always,
to Lares Land!
