Looking for a louder echo call. Anybody use the boss for hunting? Also how loud is the open water model compared to the xlt or breaker? Thanks

I was thinking the same thing so I called in and talked to Rick. I was surprised that he talked me out of it. I suggest you call them and get the logical reasons from the source.
Because I wanted a hunter not a contest ringer, I got a Breaker instead.

Thanks for the input. Did you ask about the open water? If so, what did he say about its volume compared to the breaker and xlt? I have a breaker but it's definitely not the loudest echo I've had when compared to a couple of old xlts that I've had.

I just got a boss a few weeks ago bc I wanted something for the big open water and super windy days. I honestly was and still am how much bottom end it's got. I got it in a trade and it came with two inserts. One insert definitely has more duck built in. I will be carrying the boss from now on when hunting big water in windy days. For small holes though its xlt, pure meat, timber for me. So IMO I think the boss can be an excellent hunting call in certain conditions. Maybe you can get echo to build you a boss that is toned down a hair and has less top end and more bottom, especially if you won't ever want it for comp calling. Or have two inserts made, one for comp and one toned down for hunting. Hope this helps. Good luck and be safe in the marsh!!!
