big river game calls sound ok and are cheap. If you want to spend some money and get an awesome call go with Foiles. :thumbsup:

The Foiles "Meat Grinder" is a good call about $60. Fred Zink has a new poly paralyzer for $30 in cabelas waterfowl. I have not used it but, his other calls are good.

A friend who has allot of calls may help.
Some call makers allow a no question return.
The guts are worth about $5. You might find a call you like, and experiment with different guts. Most short reeds are interchangable

A meat grinder is a good call, its only about $60, wich isn't too expensive compared to some other ones.

If you have experience with short reeds I would say,try a bunch of them out and buy the one that fits your calling style.If not,you can get one of the name brand polycarb calls or one of the winglocks.They will also wont cost you a bunch of money.
