best speck call

Postby huntingdude16 » Tue Jul 08, 2008 7:00 pm

Does anyone here have an opinion on what is the best speck call on the market today?

If not which is best, what do you have and how do you like it?

Sean Mann Express Whitefront
Redbone
Basin Waterfowl Calls Ricer
Chien Caille
RNT Quackhead Spec call

These are the ones i've used and found they all worked great.

Sean mann, Redbone and Quackhead were easiest to operate. I really like the tone of the Redbone and Ricer calls

There are also many other great calls out there: Zink and Lares each have new spec calls that i would like to give a try

I own expensive speck calls, but the one that produces the best results for me in the field is one of the cheaper ones. The Primos shaved reed speck call is my "go to" call. It puts out plain speck talk (nothing fancy) and just works best for me. It's a little tricky learning how to use your fingertip to get it to break right but once you get it down it produces results. Just my "two cents worth."

Buy a RedBone. :thumbsup:

You will never outgrow the range of Speck notes built into that call.

I found a snow/speck hammer that was for $15, so figured what the hell. I'm not sure how exactly to make the standard speck honk. I went to the redbone website, and for their calls, you have to whistle into the call to get what i'm looking for. Is this standard to whistle to make such a note?

Thing is, even at 17, I can't for the life of me whistle a note.

You do not actually have to whistle into a RedBone Speck call to get a note.
Nathan Wright uses that comparison to instruct on how to present air into the call for that note.

If you take the time to learn hoe to blow A RedBone Speck call you will be well rewarded.
It is much easier to learn to blow a Speck call than a mallard single reed in my opinion.

RedBone calls come with an instructional CD and DVD that not only demonstrates the notes, but also the hand positions.
You can watch the DVD to learn the notes and required hand positions and play the CD in your truck to practice. :thumbsup:

Alright, thanks for the help. :thumbsup:

I probably won't be able to afford a $150 call any time soon though.

All hedge redbone............can't be beat !!!!!
Nathan is a great guy to work with ...............he will ask about your calling style and what you like as far as tone.
After talking too Nathan for a hour or more he pretty much knew what I wanted ( The best call he could build)
I left it all up to Nathan ......and he sent me out one of his comp calls..............all hedge pruple and red guts.

Nathan's istructional CD is the best I have heard bar none...........I'm talking about better then ANY!!!!!! calling CD I have heard.....................EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The CD alone is worth the money he charges for his calls.

Best speck call I have ever heard........by far.
A little bit touchie to run at first ......but with a little time you'll have them bar bellies falling out of the sky in no time.

Nathan stands behind his calls 100%

The Lares Speck call has been successful in our blind for the last five years. A bit pricey but it works like a charm

Redbone and James Meyers calls are the best around. Let it be noted though, that James Meyers, along with Bill Daniels, now makes a polycarb speck that goes for around $65.00 and it sounds almost as good as the acrylic. His calls don't require a lot of air to run. If you ask real nice-like I'm sure he'd throw in the CD too.

James called about something else the other day, but we ended up talking about the poly. He was pumped about how well they came out, and $65 is what they're getting for it. Don't know about the rest of the country, but they'll probably sell a slew of them here where most everyone knows someone running a Meyers/Riceland.

Know he is, or was, tight with the Riceland boys, so it's not surprising his speck call sounds a lot like theirs and the Redbone, but I've not tried it and am curious in what manner you feel it is "better"?

in the manner that I went to his shop and he helped me learn to blow the call and it didnt require that much air to blow he does speak highly of meyers. I have never blown a redbone or meyers only heard them they are great sounding calls I am just biased he has helped me get the grunt out of my duck calling and worked with me on blowing a snow goose call both of which he made. like I said customer service is second to none.

I know James or Bill at Riceland would have done the same and feel quite confident Nathan at Redbone would have, too.

Shoot, if you're struggling with a dirt cheap Haydel call, one of the Haydel boys will go well out of his way to get you up and running on it. With precious few exceptions, call makers are big on customer service.

Welcome to the forum, Sanchez. I'd heard the Riceland boy's went "international".
