This call is incredible! Has a nice crispness to the clucks and great hold for the squeaks and squeals you can't get out of other calls. However it is not a call for those that are starting or do not dedicate a lot of time in the off season to practicing. The call doesn't magically make you sound like Kent Cullum. It takes a lot of control to work this call but when you master it you can do all the sounds you have ever wanted to do but just couldn't get your old calls to do. It does have a tendency to stick if I don't put the reed facing down when I blow it .... May just be me as I put a lot of spit through the call.
I have two other Echo Calls that I am happy with however, when I received this call it had too much rasp and not enough top or bottom. I called ECHO and told them how I wanted call tuned and when they returned call it was the same.
