Echo timber is a good call. Not the loudest call but it sounds great.

Echo makes some nice calls. Rick Dunn does a nice job and I've been satisfied with the calls I've got from him. There are a lot of copycat calls on the market that derived from Rick's basic timber call. I like the older Echo poly calls in double reed. I've blown some good single reeds too from him. Easy to deal with. Rob Watts used to work for him and would set you up with anything you need. I always like to deal direct with them or get them at a show somewhere vs. mail order from Cabela's or something like that.

Great calls. If its sticking on you, then you need to learn how to present clean air into the call. You'll never have another call stick on you again. Until then, every call sticks. Echo is proven. When I open a cabelas waterfowl or macks prairie wings magazine I skip the copy cat calls and go straight to the original makers. You can only fit so many reeds into a call, turn it so many colors and name it so many things. People try and reinvent the wheel over and over with duck hunting gear. But, people like Chad Belding and the banded crew are capitalizing on people doing this. Cant blame them for making a living off it. If you buy an echo mallard call, you will be very happy with its sound. Broadway Bait in Sacramento carries them and I believe Sportsman's Warehouse in Rocklin does too.
