Both high pitch calls, what are the main differences and what do you like/dislike about them?

I-5 runs like any other short reed. The Half breed can and does generally take a bit more skill and slightly different technique to run. The Damphir runs NICE! TC guts run easy and sound great in that call!

I'd recommend calling hunter at the shop and talking to him about the damphir. That call was kinda his idea and he's run it for a little while now. I bought one of the prototypes and have been very happy with it. Hasn't come off the lanyard since she went on and will be the first call I reach for in the early season! As for the I5, I've never run it, so I obviously can't comment, but I know I dig the halfbreed d. The original is a bit different, some guys struggle with it a bit, so if I went that direction, I'd go "d"
