I've never tried a Gardner call but can say I haven't heard much good about them. Check your PM's

I've got Buck's Canada Hammer II. It has taken awhile to figure it out but with practice I'm getting it and it sounds pretty sweet.

I mostly use a Gander Valley and a Snake River custom calls......I highly recommend these calls!! Very easy to blow and man do they sound like a goose!

My friend's first short reed was a Canada Hammer II and he learned on it pretty quick. My brother picked up one of the Big River short reeds and can out call him any day. He even switched over from a flute. It took some time and PRACTICE and he finally got it down. Now that is all that he likes to have on his lanyard.

I've got a Canada Hammer II. I think it's one of the best sounding poly calls out there for the price. It takes very little air to blow, and you can get pretty fast on it. IMO it's a very good call, especially if you're learning, plus if ya ever need anything they will go out of their way to help you out. :thumbsup:

Mine's kinda high pitched and seems to take a lot of air, but once you get used to it it sounds really good. Sometimes you've got to grunt into it to get the right tone. If you've got questions give Buck a call, I'm sure he'd help you out.

First off, I'm not big on testimonials and I don't have any one call, duck or goose, that I feel is the fix all for any situation. For me, I've got the Winglock Delrin Short Reed that I use pretty much exclusively in the field. Only because it sets off what my usual partner has has going with a Basin Abimination or Lares nicely.

Now on to the reason for posting. (I don't do that very often either.) I had the extreme pleasure of spending the evening visiting with John Vaca of Gardner Products yesterday. During that time I blew and heard blown several different Canada Hammer IIs set up for varying calling situations, from comp to beginner level field. All performed extremely well and when put up against some top names they held thier own. We had all levels of callers at this Que and even the beginners were able to use one out of the package at a level that would work birds.

If you've bought one that doesn't live up to what I've described above I'd definitly contact Buck or John about it cause somethin is wrong, be it a defect or operational.

Now I'll finish my lurking then go back to nursing this headache. Someone must have clubbed me last night cause I've never had a hangover after Booker's.
