Read more carefully.......he didn't suggest a call (Molt Gear EX3), he suggested an instructional (Bad Grammer by Molt Gear's Scott Threinen). That said, while Bad Grammer certainly is a great instructional if you don't blow a call using Scott's technique (tongue on the roof of your mouth and behind upper teeth-NOT TONGUE ANCHORED) it really does you no good other than hearing what a certain sound "should" sound like. For that reason, I would also suggest Shawn Stahl's instructional Honker Talk. Try both methods and see which you prefer and then stick with it until you can do the basics (cluck, moan, murmur, double cluck) without even thinking about it. As for which call, biggest thing is finding one that you're comfortable holding and using. Essentially any/every short reed goose call can be set up or made to sound extremely close to every other one by either changing the guts or messing with the tuning (something else I would also suggest learning how to do). Not only will learning to tune your own call save you the hassle of having to send it back to the makers shop should it become (or heaven forbid arrive by mail) out of tune, it will allow you to set the call up perfectly for you and the way you blow a call.
