I like them. Take it from someone else making calls when time allows. Some will like them, some will not like them. Some will tell you they like them when they don't. A better way to put it, make them to your liking and be happy with that. If you chase what other people like you will be chasing forever.
I learned that duck calls are governed just like anything else, marketing. You can make a call to sound just like any other call out there. There is no magic touch, no hidden abilities. The sound I like is different than the sound you and everyone else likes. I didn't put all that together until I was bound for being a duck call maker. I went to a marketing firm and the first thing he stated is "How much money you spend on marketing is directly related to how much you're going to make". He had already researched Youtube first and had a game plan of "Lets go kill a whole lot of birds on camera and we will edit in the calling later in the studio. It is all a smoke and mirror horse crap game where the truth is rarely told. It is the same reason I don't watch the outdoor commericials, I mean the outdoor channel. Something has to die by the third commercial series in the program and I have never listened to cheap arse loud crescendo of rock n roll music while shooting a deer out of a box blind.
Something was completely wrong baout all of it. I stepped of that train and make a few calls here and there. Not for the money but for the love of the art and the sport. So don't rely on what is said here to govern your path. Make your calls with love of the game and be damned the marketing end of it all.
