Only two calls will be going with me to the field this next goose season: Sean Mann's Eastern Shorty Express & Winglock Delrin.

This Winglock Delrin is everything everybody said it would be. I'm officially done buying calls now!

I think Plainsman said it best - the only thing better than a Winglock would be a pet goose...:D

Enjoy GooseBob!!! Up to this point in time, I haven't heard any call that sounds as pure as a Winglock!!! Combine that with easy operation,great cutomer service and VERY reasonable pricing....it's so clear, a blind man could see it,Winglock rocks!!!!
On a side note, I have another call on the way from a lesser known maker who assures me I'll like his call as much as the Winglock. Thats a very tough feat to accomplish. I guess I'll see when it gets here.I'll keep an open mind about it and post my conclusions.
I'll still be getting another Winglock with the long insert, supposed to be louder and deeper than the originals.

Yes, I've seen the light! :D

I'm totally blown away by the construction of the Winglock call, it is butter smooth when you pull it apart--this reed looks pretty long compared to the Sean Mann's...

When are the new ones coming out? Maybe I got one????...either way, I'm thrilled!

The new ones are out and they do rock. I got three in my store last week along with some whisperers. Told one customer about them and BAM all where gone. Got to get some more for my own lanyard.

WINGLOCK has got to be one if not the best call out there.

:D i agree,as a call maker.i still buy other call's if they sound good and are easy to use.it is what fit's a person,there's plenty of time's i have tried the same brand call.3 or four time's same call.and out of those 3 or 4 call's found one.that fit's me and my calling style.side note;your hooked man,you'll need to buy a ten lanyard call strap.and add a extra room to your place to store all your call's. :wink: ps;if you have a dog you take with, you get him or her a lanyard so he or she can carry some also,heck teach it to blow one..haaaaaaaa-haaaaaaa.joking. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: see-ya steve

My call has a big gold oval shaped emblem with the Winglock logo & slogan with some geese flying...the reed is almost boat shaped and is pretty long for a "short" reed comparing my others to it....came wrapped in a piece of waxed paper with the Winglock logos on it...Anyone know if this is this the new version?

I was expecting a call with an etching in the delrin of the single goose & Winglock name on it.

It is nice & loud!

Plus the Shawn Stahl DVD is pretty awesome, too!

I recently got the delrin, and my call is all black, no logo on it anywhere. However it did come wrapped in the wax paper. It's a real nice sounding call. Unfortunately a couple of my hunting buddies are looking to get one before next season. I was hoping to have the best sounding call in the group. Now i'll just have to out call 'em with the instruction that I get from the Honker Talk video!

Does anybody know if there are any duck calling videos out there that provide good instruction similar to the Honker talk video???

Steve, check your pm's.
I got the cocobola call Steve sent me a couple days ago and wanted to put it through it's paces a little before I made any public comments about his call...want to post with a open mind. First off, the workmanship is great, he chose a remarkable piece of wood to use. Very well made with a incredible finnish.
The sound quality is verrry good!! It's got a nice sharp crack and breaks over quite easily. Takes very little air to operate, a great call for someone just starting out and will be deadly in the hands of an experienced caller.I've been using it with no backpressue at all.
It's a mid-tone call, not deep like a Winglock, but way deeper than my pip.I'd have to say that this is a very good call, in both looks, tone and ease of use. It'll definately be hanging next to my Winglock in the upcoming season!!!!Great job Steve, keep it up!!!!

I bought the Winglock delrin and the walnut whisperer recently but have not found the delrin to be as wonderful as everyone says it is. I'm not bashing it or giving up on it but I like my foiles migrator better. Granted the foiles is almost 3 times more money. I LOVE the walnut whisperer! That is going to be a deadly call for me this yr.

It could also be user error on the delrin as well. I will work on it more this spring and post back. Maybe it needs tuning.

Mine didn't sound quite right at first either. What I found was that it needed a break-in period to get the guts well seated. The more I practiced with it, the goosier it got. It's now been my go-to call for the last 2 seasons. I won't go hunting without that delrin again. Take a look at the guts to make sure the reed is properly placed. A very slight offset can make a world of difference.If you really think it is out of tune, send it back to Rick and he'll re-tune it for you. Or send it to me and I'll make sure it's properly dialed in. Work at it awhile first to break it in, it'll start sounding better with time.

A little tip about breaking a call in.

(Warning DO NOT DO THIS when the wife or kids are around and wear earplugs)

Get your vacume, turn it on, place your call insert end in first next to the hose, so the air is going through your call. Do that for about 15 to 30 seconds and see what you think. Do more if your not yet satisfied.
