RNT short berral or echo XLT

Postby OliverLee » Sat Feb 15, 2014 10:17 pm

I've heard good things about the RNT short berral and I've also heard good things about the echo XLT. Im thinking of getting one of those two duck calls as my next duck call because the duck call I use now takes way to much air and it's acrylic I want a soft wood call that's not ultra loud. Any help would be great thanks :smile:

I own both of these calls in acrylic.

Both are great calls that have a ton of duck in them...

But if I had to pick one, I would go with the short barrel as it is easier to get good low end snotty, whiny, squeals at the end of the quacks.

Just a good all-around call that has earned a spot on my lanyard.

Short Barrel hands down...get you one in Coco if you can find one. I prefer it over the XLT because it just has more duck on the bottom like the above poster said. Most Echos are way to inconsistent for me and I have never liked them.

What is the acrylic call you want to pair it with?
You said you're looking for a softer call so wood is a good plan. XLT (Xtra Loud Timber) is probably not what you want. You want a short barrel, likely bocote and compare that to a bois darc Echo Timber.
Actually you may really want to get a RNT old style, it's probably just what you're looking for.

Coco XLT my favorite call that I have had the opportunity to run. Can get up and can get down. The closest call is an coco XLT.

Thanks for helping me out guys. The call i have is an acrylic zink paralyzer XR-2 i love the call but it takes a lot of air and it cant do a very fast feet chuckle you run out of breath really fast and its just to laud. So any more help based on that would be great.

Short Barrel would be a good compliment to an XR-2 IMHO. The SB has more rasp and will get down on the scale whereas the XR-2 has more of a "flatter" (for lack of a better word) and louder sound.

Good advice. I got a few wood short barrels and love them. I don't think you can go wrong with a wood short barrel. A burnt hedge short barrel is a good one to if you can find one. Very easy to blow. Good low end duck.

I got a burnt hedge new old style also. Love it also. Very easy to blow also and very ducky.
