I own a couple of each of the walnut original, long neck and the whisperer. The whisper is a MUCH more choked down call than any of Rick's other calls with a bore about the size of a fat pencil, making it much...MUCH quieter than any of the other calls no matter what you do with it. ALL of the walnut series calls are going to have a nice, mellow tone to them as well. The whisperer, being as choked down and quiet as it is is really only applicable to calm days where you don't need to cut through the wind, on tight pocket fields with timber close by or over water where you DO NOT want a louder call that can echo. Also, DO NOT expect to get any kind of speed out of the whisperer either...simply can't do it well. Its made for clucks and moans and some low stuff but that's about it. The longneck isn't a "fast" call either with its long barrel and insert and is a nice, deep toned call but can be tuned a bit higher or lower much more easily than the whisperer. I've killed hundreds of geese running my longneck...it was my first short reed call I actually put on a lanyard after running flutes and resonance calls for years. Have only used my whisperer a few times... I also run an original that you can instantly tell has a different tone and an almost musical quality to it over my acrylic calls even tuned fairly high the way I have it.
