a good short reed goose call for $40 or under

Postby duckhunter17 » Sat Aug 06, 2005 10:26 am

i already have a central flyway short reed and am looking for one that is easier to blow and is good quality unlike the haydel D-81 which is a piece of crap i hate the feel of it when i blow it. it feels like you are holding a cheap toy.

Some calls I have experience with that are all great calls...
Buck Gardner Canada Hammer II ($20)
Zink Calls poly PC-1 or Power Maximus (both about $20 - $30)
Winglock Calls ShortReed, Whisperer, Longneck (wood calls $35, $40, and $50 in order)

All are easy blowing and sound good.

My bro picked up an Acrylic Canada Hammer yesterday for $50($10 more than the price range wanted). You can take out the reed and adjust it to go low for the big honkers or medium to high for the migrators and cacklers. He also got a Spittech Acrylic Double Nasty XL (duck call) that sounds pretty sweet.

I like the Buck Gardner Canada Hammer II and the Zink poly's. All good calls in the $20-$30 range.

I like the Sentinel I think it is by southern game calls (don't quote me cause I am not sure) but it is easy to blow to me anyway and has descant volume to it. And I think it only cost about $40.00.

I'll tell ya I've got an expensive acrylic big name call, and I have a poly shortreed from Tru-tone that can give me about 80% of what I get from the acrylic. Very easy call to use and to tune.There is a notch cut out of the end of the reed so when you replace it you can get it in the same spot every time. You can get low and soft and fast and high for $30. check them out.
