I been calling on some cheaper calls (cheap Echo and cheap buck Gardner) and am looking to get something a little nicer for myself. Something easy to call with, as I have not mastered the skill yet. I'd love to hear any suggestions. Thank you

Go with a good acrylic single Reed such as echo or Rnt! There's lots of good call makers out there. Blow as many as u can an pick one that seems to fit u! I would say single Reed cause if u can blow a single Reed then u can run a double Reed! Just my opinion! I run the rnt Short Barrel and love it!

I would recommend that you stick with the cheap calls until you feel you have mastered the skill. If you aren't great with a call yet, you aren't going to get any benefit out of a nicer call.

or one could say you cant master an art without the proper tools that allow you to reach your full potential...you can only get so far with crap tools.

I wouldn't drop any big mponey until you master the skill of duck calling. There are some awesome cheaper calls out there. Faulks makes one of the best IMHO. Others will scoff but I can't tell you the birds that have died while being called with a Faulks. It is a $20 call and is soft and sweet. Too much and it will lock up on you. I make my own calls but still love taking my old Faulks. I have had that call as long as I can remember. Marketeers have taken the call industry way beyond what it should be. Good for them just not for me. I think the call craze is similar to the last two Presidential elections. Lots of flare, glamour and promises with no real return for the amount of money spent. In the end people realize that a $20 call can be just as productive as a $120 call. The ones that can't admit that are the ones who just don't want to or have the capabilities as of yet. Same thing with opening weekend of deer season. 7.3 power stroke with a lift, Texas Trophy Hunter sticker in the rear window, a A Yetti cooler in the back ect. It is all about trends and people fitting in with a group of people. They have to buy that product or else be considered less than "In the know". Thats what we hunters do for each other up until the fat guy stands up and says the King is naked. The entire crowd will be set back and then people will slowly start to agree with the fat guy. Eventually they won't be trendy either cheers

I have to agree with Wal1809. One of the best calls out there is the Faulks. up

Please have more ammunition than "Faulks is BS". I got to give you one part of a win though, you can keep the migratory section lively. You may not know shat from Shinola shoe shine about duck hunting/calling but you at least keep it lively around here.

Once you master that faulks step up to a mallard tone or yentzen. They are all great at making flat toned one note low quacks that the more distinguished (old) crowd seems to love.

Telling someone to buy a faulks duck call is like recommending someone buy a pair of Durango boots. Sure, old men don't mind wearing them with their high water jeans, but the quality stinks and they're kind of silly
