My hedge Alberta Clipper from Cold Front Calls. Good high end and good low end. Just an all around AWSOME call.

For work where I need to be fast and don't need to be loud, I like my Die Hard C&S Apostle. But, so far this year, when I've needed to get loud to reach out, I've been using a Molt Gear EX3d and also used an Addiction Habit call, both with a modified Saunders tone board and an E4 reed reshaped to be similar to the GVCC reeds. I've tuned them to be high pitched and the geese have responded well to both of them.

My #1 would be my Toxic XTX with Toxic live guts. My Toxic E.O.D. with Toxic live guts is a very close second.

TG real thing with x- factor guts. Although the ex3 by molt gear is one or two more flocks away from getting the one loop.

GVCC XXX, then hit them with the PCS, by then the geese are in your lap.

Gander valley Calls ~ XXX in Acrylic
Gander Valley Calls ~ PCS in Hedge
These are the best calls I have ever owned, they fit my style and the geese eat them up better then any other rig I have ran. Lots of choices out there these are my favorites right now.

# 1 Zink COD (low pitch, requires the least air of any call I have ever tried)
#2 Lynchmob Reaper (high pitch for migrating lessers)
#3 Zink PC-1 (first call I learned on...cheap and super broke in)

Drc short drop, rnt dirtybird, and cold front alberta clipper have been the three i've most used this season. Molt gear ex3d and lmc stage reaper have also been taken out of the blind bag a time or two.
