Thoughts on the buck gardner spitfire?

Postby 24arosenthal » Tue Jan 28, 2014 10:35 pm

I have the double nasty from buck and I love it, it's my go to call. I'm thinking about getting the spitfire to add some range but I am hearing mixed things about the call any thoughts on it? Mainly how does it sound and is it good on the top and low end?

I bought it and then took it back to the store, the 1 1/2 reed system is kind of odd, really hard to blow, and I couldn't get very loud high balls. If i were you I'd pass it up. One of the very few BG calls not worth the money. (in my opinion)

Ok thanks. Any recommendations on a good single reed call?

Yeah I have been looking at that call. Thanks for the input. I think it's funny how all these expensive calls are out there but cheap calls like the double nasty and the echo timber are just as good if not better than the expensive calls.

I have a spitfire and it definitely took some getting used to. The reed and a half system was different and took me a while to get the feel for it. It does have some range but seems to lack on the low end (BUT I also don't have the best feed chatter). The shorter barrel makes it pretty easy to blow, little air needed. All in all its not a bad call but I would prefer a normal double reed myself.

Update: I am sure it was me. I got another single reed call (RNT) and had issues with it too until a buddy helped my figure what I was doing wrong. I was use to old style Yentzen double reed calls. Once I got the hang of controlling the air with my tongue I like it. You can actually stand on it pretty hard and has good range. Got on some YouTube videos and see the deal. :grooving:
