Zink Power Clucker

Postby Fishman1113 » Sun Jan 21, 2007 11:28 am

I bought a Zink Power Clucker as my first goose call. I have been practicing and feel I am getting descent. I have not had the chance to try it out in the feild yet, but what do you guys think of this call? I guess I should buy a better call in the off season and practice alot. Thanks

Yes it is fairly high pitched, but I have been told that that is not always a bad thing. If you do try his let me know what you think. I think it sounds ok but I am still new to calling. Thanks

i just talked to him and he is so frustrated with the call, he isnt really into hunting, that he is giving it to me. so give me a couple days and i will definatly give u a real opinion on the way it sounds, also it might just need to be shaved and tweaked by a professional

hope i can help

The Power Clucker is intended to be a higher pitched call as compared to say the Zink SR-1. Zinks website says that it is intended to be used for lessers. Anyhow, as many people here will tell you a high pitched call will kill geese. I know I killed most of mine with a higher pitched call this past season. Overall good call IMO and not to hard to get low on with some practice.

I think I am getting pretty good with it. It is high pitched but like Nick said you can get a little lower with it with some practice. Thanks.

I am looking forward to hearing about what you think of it MDcanvasback2189.

i like mine. and since its higher pitched, using a deeper tone of voice and more voice makes more contrast in notes. the power maximus is good too, but its def not for practice in the living room..... it hurts the dogs ears!!!

It is a high picked call. If your looking for a more deeper sound try the SR-1, and the Little Man call do it all. :thumbsup:

i have a pc-1 in poly carb i am assuming thats what you have as well? if thats the case it is a fairly high pitched call, but in hunting situations that can be very good, i killed a lot of birds over this call. if you are looking for just a hunting call you dont "need" a better call (tell the wife you do though). i retuned my PC1 so it takes a little bit less air and i can get a little bit quicker on it. it isnt a competition call by any means. but for hunting if you practice and you get good you shouldnt need a better call,
i recently bought a money maker and i love that call too! the money maker definately is my go to call i highly recomend it. keep us posted, if you want give me a pm or something, maybe i could retune it if you want its your call though

i have a power clucker also that has been retuned with a new gut system. I love the call since its my only call and even though its a polycarb. With a bit of practice you can get the call sounding awsome. I have only been calling for about 3-4 months and i can do almost every note on it. Im happy that i have learned so fast.

well it really depends on your ability to go faster etc. I asked him to tune it somewhat high pitched because the geese around here like to hear higher pitched calls. I cant say that the new guts made me get better at calling, but i have gotten alot better. Although the new guts have been alot more responsive to me which could just be the tuning, im not sure but i did notice a pretty good sound difference. It sounds better in my opinion after the gut change

Did you buy a Polycarb? The only downfall of polycarb is volume... You definately can call geese with this call...
