Don't have a real preference but quacker make some good raspy one that I like, the main thing is keeping it dry in between hunt and like muddy said keep them in the frig when you not going to use them any time soon. Take care of them they'll take care of you.

Presston Pittman for me all the way. I love the black diamond. I also would recommend storing them in the fridge during the off season. Also place toothpicks between the reeds to eliminate sticking. Normally I buy new calls every 2 years. As for the small rip. If it doesn`t effect the pitch of the call your fine. I have a slight ripe in one of mine and it slightly changed the pitch but in a good way. Remember practice, practice and more practice.

I use a tru tone and a double stacked frame primos...the primos works well for more raspy sounds and the tru tone is made more for a higher pitch younger sounding hen. I also do some gobbles while in the woods and I use my primos for that. I also use Mad Calls and I had a Penn's Woods call that worked really well but I lost it in the woods. I store my calls in the fridge and most of mine last a long time, I have an old hunters specialties call that I don't use anymore that has been around for about 3 years and still blows well...but overall I use mad calls, primos, and tru tone

You can't buy a better call the Hook's executioner. Hook's is awesome, they are not real big in your mouth like some of the H.S. strut call, and other ones you can buy at walmart. Check out their website.

I have used a variety, but now I use Cannon Country Game calls. I was luck y enough to find a whole box of never been opened mouth calls at an auction. Bought the box for $20 for $50 worth of calls. It was good because there were 5 different kinds diaphrams, so now I have everything from high balls to my favorite old raspy sound.
