Ducklander hand cut

Postby tnhunter42 » Wed Oct 16, 2013 5:37 pm

I have a QT right now and am wondering about getting a louder call to complement the QT. Can anybody tell me the difference between the hand cut LT and the standard LT? Also what about the Sinner? Which would fit my needs better? I'd use this call on big river channels.

Conartist would pair well with the QT

I have the QT as well and asked Bobby this question just the other day. He suggested to pair it with the Conartist as well.

I don't see anywhere on the site that says they are hand cut. Last time I checked, Bobby Hayes is one of the few call makers that still hand turns acrylic. Hand cut means that he cuts the toneboard in the jig out on the bandsaw instead of a machine doing it.

Bobby CNCs some of his stuff now. The hand cut LT is cut the way that he hunts his LT.

What's the Conartist like? I've not had a chance to run it. Is it like an RNT Original? Excuse my ignorance

Conartist is similar to the Orginal,about the same volume and range IMHO

Is it as clean as the Original? The Original wasn't quite my cup of tea.

Bobby has the option the have an LT "Hand Cut" which is also engraved on the end of the insert as well. Louder than the original and a lot of fun to use.

The LT Handcut is an LT that Bobby hand modifies the insert. Usually opens the bore up and does some work to the tone board. LT Handcuts tend to be a little more raspy and have that old mallard hen sound to them. Conartist is a loud "open water" type call. I run a sinner on my lanyard along with an LT Hedge and an Acylic QT. The sinner is really raspy and has a lot of squeal built into it. It's a looser running call, which gives a little more forgiveness. Just like any duck call, it's a matter of preference in what you think the ducks want to hear on that day. PM me if you have any questions about it.

*Edit* - Bobby does still do some hand turned calls upon request.

If you like the way the QT runs, the Conartist would suit you. I think he can tune it for you several different ways. The one I have was tuned with a bit more hold and can get loud but not overly loud. He tuned it with the reed a little off center with dog ears to match, so I believe that's how he achieves that? I experimented with a different reed in it and could get big volume and ring out of it.
