New to calling and I just picked this up after another thread recommended it. Why didn't someone tell me it was so damn hard! I took it out of the package after seeing some videos on how to best use the call. So I went to use it and after about 30 seconds I collapsed on the floor from the lack of oxygen. I came to but I'm still twitchy and out of breath. Holy smokes! Man this is gonna take A LOT of practice, many nights of being cursed out by friends and family in listening distance and the butt end of many jokes.


And this is supposed to be the "easy" call! Lol

You will build up your tolerance pretty quick... Just think, you have 9 months to practice and get your lungs in shape!

Something is bad wrong if a faulks is requiring a lot of air. Bad wrong! I would claim tou should lock it up, long before you ran out of air.

He is learning, the key is back pressure.

Doesn't take much air to produce sound. Putting together a string is what harder though.

You'll be ok. You have the only two guys in the world that would recommend a Faulks call helping you out.

Back pressure is your friend and practice. That call should not be that bad to work. Though I have some other calls and several costing a lot more the Faulks on the lanyard gets lots more use than the others combined.

That funny! Have you noticed they are both call makers confused2. One of which hs been making calls longer than any of us have been alive. The question was not what is the "Best" call on the market. The original question which he and I both had an answered Faulks was, "What is the best call out there for around $20". There are better calls out there but not a lot for $20.

If we are being honest. I bought a spec call from Faulks. It was $18. I got ripped off. It is about half the size of a kids toy, hard to run and I just don't care for it. I wouldn't recommend that call for even $5. For their duck call, $20, you can't beat a Faulks. It has a much softer sound. Right now I can tell you the greenheads at my lease are so jumpy you can't honk at them. About the most you are going to do it some short pops, a quack when they way out on a swing and some feeding chuckles (Not when they are close to you). Anything more than that right now would run off the birds at my place.
