tall timber II single reed poly

Postby Mattquack » Wed Oct 05, 2005 10:02 pm

I just a got a new tall timber II, and just in the little bit that I've blown it, it's sticking and squealing on me. From everything I've read, guys seem to think that this is a decent call. Does anyone have any advice on how to prevent it from sticking, and squealing?

i have heard some people put rainx on the plastic reeds of some calls. if it's sticking i would contact the manufacturer about it and see what the true problem is. from what i gather, those are very reliable calls. hth!

Try flipping the reed over and see if that helps. If it doesn't then contact Buck Gardner Calls and they'll fix you up.

You have to try harder to have spit control. Do that by swallowing or just concentrating on not blowing so much saliva into the call. If you are squealing it, you need to back off the air pressure and concentrate on coming more from your diaphragm and talking into the call rather than blowing into it. If you are sticking that call, you will stick any other call out there other than a spit-tech, which is something else you might consider if you can't seem to control the amount of spit you blow into your call.

Oh yeah, don't use rain x. It's meant for glass and it eats up plastic.[/i]

I have one...and like it a lot. About the only time it sticks or squeals.......is when I'm using it during cold temps. Of course, I tune and customize most of my calls. :smile: :thumbsup:
