This might be a stupid newbie question. What is the difference between acrylic and poly vs wood?
Is it louder sounding or just tougher material?

Acrylic will tend to have a more crisp sound and be tougher as opposed to wood or poly.
Not a thing wrong with wood or poly either.

Acrylic is cast into rods. It's a version of Plexiglass. The calls are turned from the rod whereas polycarbonate calls are poured into molds. All calls will break but acrylic is usually more durable. Wood calls will change their tone significantly in extreme cold. You must separate the insert from the barrel of a wood call or they will get stuck. All calls will change sound with cold weather. Wood is more susceptible to it. I have never owned a good sounding call that would not stick when it's extremely cold. Have had wood calls completely crap out when it's below 32F. I have never had an acrylic call do that to me in those conditions.
