Tim Grounds Calls

Postby love2eatducks » Wed Oct 26, 2011 11:50 am

I'm going to transition from a flute to a short reed and I want a Tim Grounds Call; what call would you guys suggest. I'd like to hear opinions; thanks in advance!

A poly superman would be a great call to start on. The superman is a fantastic call that is used by many, could be one of the more popular calls. Great tones and extremely versatile. Also, the poly version won't break your bank.

I'm pretty sure you mean the poly carbonate "Super Mag". I've seen them as low as about $30 in orange plastic. Might want to paint that one before hunting with it, though.

Got with a Super Mag...whether it be wood, acrylic or poly carbonate. Very good beginner call. Once you get going get a Triple Thang outstanding! :thumbsup:

Tim Grounds Calls

The super mag is a great call to start with but I've found that the real thang and super thang are way more versatile than the triple thang. I personally have two real thang's, one of which I'm trying to sell and have basically had them since I transitioned to acrylic calls. if you want to just hunt, I would recommend a hedge/wooden call of his. I cannot get my acrylic ones quiet enough when the geese have almost landed.

triple crown. It is worth the money. Get bad grammer to go with it.
People from the hunting industry let you down. I have no idols in this sport.

since it sounds like this will be your first short reed, I would say start with a cocobolo or hedge super mag. Nice wooden calls that wont cost you an arm and a leg, and easy to learn on that have good sound and range. After you become proficient..??..you can swap out the guts, and put a set of tripple crown guts in there. Tripple crown guts are the Grounds company's top of the line guts that have won lottsa contests and money.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.

My first goose call was a triple crown and haven't looked back since. Prob a little harder to run than some of the others, but once you learn it it's amazing. Def suggest bad grammer as well!

I am a huge grounds fan, amazing customer service from those guys, and one helluva product...championships dont lie. But if you are switching from a flute might want to check out the Field Proven Aftershock, made exactly for guys switching from a flute. I personally run a super thang, Had a TC but just wasnt using it enough, great call however. Probably wouldnt suggest a super thang or real thang right out of the gate, Pro Super mag would probably be more your speed, if you are wanting to spend some money get some triple crown guts thrown in there. Might actually be switch to a Matrix in the near future however.

Polycarb SuperMag with TC guts is a seriously under-rated call. You can do anything you'll ever need to kill geese on that horn (course that could be said about just about any call!) and still have room to grow. Wish mine hadn't frozen and cracked earlier this year, but I will be replacing it during the off season! Great call.
