I blew a power hen at a retailer near me and I thought the bottom end of the call was great. You are right though about ring they are just not made to do that. As a meat call it was a better fit for me. I would like to have one for a few days, cut a reed, and really be able to fool around with one.

He has made some changes the past few years, so you may still want to try one. For what you described, my call of choice would be a RNT daisy cutter or Buck gardner's tall timber spit tech. I really like both of these calls. They are both really good all around calls, IMO.
