Aluminum call identification?

Postby clampdaddy » Sat Jan 18, 2014 11:37 am

I bought this call a while back but have no idea who it was made by. The words "pocket rocket" were written on the reed but they rubbed off when I set the reed depth to fit me. The call is made entirely of aluminum, has double o-rings, a rubber wedge and it uses a heavy dog eared reed, shaped just like the one in my Lares. Any ideas?

Thanks. Couldn't really find any information about him. I've been thinking about trading it off for a more useful call (this one is awfully heavy to have hanging on the lanyard) but i have no idea what to base its trade value on.

Nice call sir. Unusual and different. How does it sound

Thanks. Whoever made it definitely knew his way around a lathe. I haven't done much tuning to it. It has a bright, high pitched sound but with the reed that's in it I can either get it to run with a good bottom and no top, or a decent top with no bottom. It has a long toneboard with a pretty aggressive reed set to it. I think a longer and heavier reed is in order.

No idea on value. Wish I could help you out on that one.

To be honest I think its pretty awesome looking. I love seeing unusual but practical looking calls

If you want it, I'd love to add one of your calls to my lanyard. Let me know if you'd be interested in working out a trade.

It looks like it's from the future.

Funny you should mention that. One of my buddies said it looked like a pocket knife version of a light saber. :lol3:
