After hearing alot of talk about this call, i finally got to blow one today. i liked it. it was smooth, ducky, worked up and down well, and i was able to transition from greets to feeds to quacks without much trouble. i pulled it apart and saw the 2 reeds with the rubber "cork" and was thinking to myself, "not a bad little call...i can see why people like it."

i had already mentally prepared myself to plop down the 60-70 bucks for the call when i saw the price...$124.00 :eek: :eek:

i won't say where i was, but please tell me that was a gross overpricing.

yeah, i expect the 100 bucks plus from a nice high end single reed acrylic. i dunno, it was a nice call, it just didn't feel like a 130 dollar call to me. 75 bucks and i was walking out with it...but there are alot of calls i would have rather had for a Buck Thirty.

i guess i am just griping...maybe i'll find a used one around.

hmmm...i guess you're both right. i should run right out and buy one.

-or-

maybe not.

sorry fellas, while i agree with ya that it is a nice call. i just can't personally justify laying out the bucks for it. anyone have one that they want to sell for 70 bucks..look me up. i'm an owner.
