Man thats like asking whose wife makes the best cookies. Everyone will have a different opinion, go to a store and blow them all, go to some shows and talk to the makers if you can, then make you selection.

One nice thing, is call makers usually have great service and are more than willing to go the extra mile to help you.

Your question in almost impossible to answer so many great call makers out there.. But I will tell you I make a mean timber call out Big River game call not sure what model it is but it's the wetlands camo. One... But I take the reeds cut the end to a triangle about .75cm from the end and just tune from there... Produce a lot less echo in timber hunting and very low pressure required to blow.

You'll get opinions, but not facts. Everbody has their own opinion. Personally, I really like Doc calls

Best advice is to go somewhere and try some. If you cant, give some of the call makers a call at their office. Theyll be glad to blow some for you.

some of the BEST customs are probably made by people you have never heard of....or at least, don't hear of too often.

I have a Reid Threadgill Custom that is a beautiful call..and very ducky. I won't hunt with it anymore, though i did for about half a season a couple of years ago. it's too nice to take out to the marsh.


Having said that..I have to agree with everyone else. You need to try them out and find out what is best for you to really answer that question.

Personally i love my Taylor Talker but there are a billion different custom calls out there and just do your research and talk to the ones you think you might like!
"Dont land over there!"
So what time are they suppose to show up?

i agree this is a very hard question, my gotos are all RNTs yet I love Reid Threadgill calls. My next call will be an acrylic single reed ried threadgill. They are a very ducky call and have a huge variation of notes you can hit with it! $90 for an acrylic too! :getdown:
