What if "the best call on the market" isn't one of those you mentioned?

Get your hands on every call that you can, including any that aren't on your "list" and blow them. You need to make this choice for yourself. My hunting partner can't stand either of my goose calls and to me my winglock is the best on the market. IT is the best because it fits me and my style the best.

Another example: When I was looking to upgrade to an acrylic duck call the salesman told me that the Zink Power Hen was the best call on the market. I like the call but when I picked up the Buck Gardner Tall Timber, I felt like the PH was just ok.

If you will only look at those on your "list" then my suggestions would be the Foiles Strait Meat Honker, Zink Money Maker and Zink Little Man. I can't suggest any Sean Mann calls because I have never tried one. I like those I mentioned because they were all easy to blow and sound good on. I have heard very little complaints about them as well. Good Luck!

I have never blown a flute so I won't be much help there. When I got stated everyone told me to just go with the short reed and I did.

the meat cutter is a flute. I myself have a Foiles Strait meat honker and High Plains Honker both short reeds. Your right both of them sound different. If you cant kill geese with a Foiles call then you should take up a different sport.

this guy that i work with had 10 diffrent calls and he brought them to work one day for me to try out to switch over from a flute to a short he had zinks,tim grounds, lynch mob, foiles u get the point but out of all those calls he had foiles strait meat was the only call that i could make an attemp at honking right off the get go so to me foiles is the easiest to blow and i started in january and i think that i know enough and feel confident enough and sounds good enough to call some birds in but still a lot of learning to do

You may want to sick with a short reed call. There alot easier to work with. I personally like to Money Maker from Zink. But the best thing to do is go to your local sporting goods and give some of them a test drive before you run out and buy a call that doesn't fit you. Good luck.
