The G Overhauler from Tim and Hunter is a great call :thumbsup:

Grounds all day. Don't take my word for it though. Get your hands on each of possible, or listen to some sound files on YouTube. Quick warning though, once you hear Hunter Grounds run a call, you may just decide that it's just not possible for a human to sound that good on a call. :thumbsup:

Get a Grounds and be done with it.
My suggestion would be a G Overhauler in acrylic/wood. :thumbsup:

3 weeks ago (having tried nearly every call in the Ground's lineup and both of last years version Molt Gear calls) I would have said 100% without a doubt, go Grounds. I've since picked up this years verison of the EX3D and not only has it exceeded my expectations, I wouldn't be afraid to hang it next to any of the Grounds calls I hunt with, own, or have tried. Absolutely sick on the low end finesse stuff and can still open up and get nice and loud with plenty of pop on the notes that need it. The guts/reed and material used (still not true delrin-but IMO much better looking high gloss poly type material) are much nicer than last years EX3D package.....if you can get over the graphics. I plan on using the first one I picked up tuned medium/low for over the water where I hunt; again, very impressed with the range of notes capable of being made on the call (low pressure notes like a flying spit come quite easily). I've got a second one coming in the mail that I will tune just a bit higher. The EX3D's have impressed me to the point that I WILL OWN an X-series before this coming hunting season. FWIW, Grounds also makes a call that can fit every single situation. Great calls and great service from both makers. You really can't go wrong with either.

Not trying to steal the thread...Jake, how do you like the new (this year's ) guts compared to the older (last year's) set? I felt like the old set didn't have much range and couldn't be tuned very well. Are they still "started" guts?

I like the guts in the EX3D. And to be honest, I didn't think the original EX3D guts were terrible (not my favorite by a long shot) but they were considerably more user friendly than the normal EX3 guts and the wedge which is the reason I think a lot of guys had trouble with the first EX3's.....I know I was one of them. This years 3D guts are started but for some reason I seem to recall reading they didn't change them from last years model? More along the lines of internal changes being made that made the biggest difference. I hope Mike reads this and responds because I am not positive and he would be the one to know.

The new EX3 Xseries is a tremendous improvment overall. New reeds, wedge, bore etc. Probably the best thing out of that shop minus the graphics.

that is one of the many advantages to the grounds goose calls
TC guts and traditional appearances, not to mention the old man's customer service :smile:

MG EX3D, UGLY but one of the nicest calls I have ever ran. Beats the original EX3 and X series. Plus it is half of the price!

I'd also have to go with a G-Overhauler. It's my favorite call from Grounds in a long time, maybe ever.

I like my G Overhauler. Being fairly new to calling it was a great jump from the Zink PC-1 poly I had before.

I have TG triple thang and TG triple crown. I also have two EX3 X series.

With me, I have way more range and faster with molt gear. I'm 10x better on X series over my TG calls.

Any tips here on getting low goosey sounds on the Real Thang?

Shave the reed. Works wonders. I always left my Grounds calls alone because of how they were tuned and the bent tip of the reed. However, after another forum member telling me he shaves his reeds and hearing his soundfiles the low end was a lot better and the top end wasn't lost. Give it a try shave a little of the reed then try it and shave a little more until you get it to where you like it. But just did this in my real thang and love it now.

Funny,you bring that up.
I had never ran a shaved reed in a set of TC's since when they came out years ago,always used a full reed and liked the way it ran and sounded,be it an old Half Breed,SM,PSM,RT,ST,never have ran a Triple Crown or the Triple Thang yet.
But after running the first G Overhauler I got that came with a slight shaved reed it was an real eye opener to what a difference it could make on certain calls of Tim's I had put in or had came with TC's in them,one being the Super Thang.
I could never get decent low end no matter how I tuned it,but after running a shaved reed in it what a huge difference it made.I never did have any issue with low end out of a RT though.
