New call wanted...thinking Real Thang

Postby kyblueskye » Sat Feb 15, 2014 7:16 pm

Looking for a new goose call. Had a Zink NBN. Didn't love it. Lookin for a new call. Thinking of getting a Tim Grounds. Seems to be a good one. Reading lots of recomendations. Thoughts on this one or any other call for that matter. Looking for one that fairly easy to run. And also what guys should I put in it. Thanks guys.

Why didn't you like the NBN? What are you looking for in a goose call? Low end, speed, etc...

I'm not an advanced caller at all. This is the first year I have really ever it into goose hunting. I don't know what particularly I don't like per say. Just seemed I wasn't very forgiving. I had a cheap poly buck Gardner that I could run and make sound better then the NBN.

Bad Grammer DVD :thumbsup:

I would go with something a little longer. It might be easier to break over :thumbsup:

Real Thang is a great call,but you need good hand control to get the most out of it.
One suggestion I have is take a real good look at the "G" Overhauler by Grounds. :thumbsup:

My suggestion is a Sean Mann Eastern Shoreman acrylic they are very easy to learn to use and sound great and wont break your piggy bank

The TG real thang is a good call, it comes tuned at the desirable pitch and breaks over nicely but not to easy which is great. You can get loud and high but also get some good murmurs and moans. I like mine

The Real Thang is a great call. It's my favorite.

However I would look into the G Overhauler as ColoradoGooser said. It has a little longer insert, and is VERY forgiving.

Another vote for the G Overhauler

Field Proven Matrix. And they're a KY company, support local there blue sky. I actually gave one a try partially biased because they're out of Louisville and it is by far my favorite, and I currently own 5 high end goose calls.
