looking for good, cheap, beginner short reed.

Postby drew_timothy » Tue Sep 04, 2007 6:16 pm

Hey, im looking to go from a flute to a short reed, and im on a budget, so im just looking for some info. Ive been looking at a Zink pc-1, a Quackhead Goozilla, and a Knight and Hale Pit Boss, so if you know anything about any of these calls, id be happy to hear about it. Im also open to suggestions on any other call you think would be a good sounding beginner call. Thanks.

Go with the Power Clucker in my opinion.

I have the PC-1 Poly, I like it but I like my Poison Goose call by Southern Game Calls. It's $20 more, but I think it produces a better sound. Just my opinion.

I have just a few words of advice.. Try a Foiles Meatgrinder.It is one of the easiest calls to start with and it makes for an easy transition into an acrylic call later down the road.thanks

Go with the PC-1 from Zink. It's a great start up call and I even know guys who have used that call in contest and placed with it. So it not a bad all around call.

PC-1 is a good one. I cut my teeth on the Goosilla and would recommend it. But I think I would hunt down one of the left over BG Canada Hammer acrylic calls. You can find them four under $50.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!

thanks for the replies, i went with the zink, i couldnt find a winglok to try, and the meat grinder was a little to expensive, but it sounded nice.
