I have 2 calls that I've been using (**** Lacy's Big River Flute and a Big River Flock Talk)...For the big cans that we encounter, the Flock Talk is too high pitched and the Big River Flute (while it sounds more like the big cans) can't do it all (plus it isn't consistant from call to call).

I'd like to find a good call with the lowest (big goose) sound and I believe that I have it narrowed down to a Delrin Winglock or "Reload" by Bill Saunders.

Which of the two has the lower raspy goose tone? And, is there another call that I should look at in the $60 range?

Thanks,

Both calls you mentioned I have heard good things about. Other choices include Foiles, Zink, Sean Mann, Tim Grounds. All make polycarb versions of the acrlyics that can be had for $60 dollars or so. I own the Foile's Meatgrinder and am very happy with it.

As for low goose sounds, many(if not all) of the aforementioned call makers will tune your call to fit your needs. E-mail them before you buy and they can tell you if this is possible.

I've added Sean Mann's call to the list, but it's funny how everybody's site claims to have the best calls made...anybody else have the Sean Mann call?

I'm just looking for good low sounding call that won't cost as much as my gun. :D

Well, since I found a Sean Mann Express Eastern Shoreman at Trader Outdoors for $39.99, I decided to give it a try...

From the sound byte at Mann's site, it sounds like the geese we hear in these parts of PA.

i have a shoreman and i really like it, all kinds of notes, i have the damn tape memorized haha, now ive been listening to geese and ive been practicing making other notes other than described on the tape, listening to what the geese say when others are coming into the flock on the ground is awesome, duplicating these sounds is a chore but a great learing experience, as they say persistence pays off. good luck

The deepest calls I've heard so far are the Winglock delrin and the GK Slayer. I use a Winglock as my "go to" call. It's nice and deep, real goose built right in. I wouldn't trade it for any other call....period!!!!!!!! The Grounds pro mag is also supposed to be a hell of a call, but I haven't heard one yet to give a real opinion.

Got my call today, except that they sent me by mistake a Sean Mann Shorty Express...same price...

So, I guess I'll be playing with this one for a while...so far I like how it sounds, more goosey than the Flock Talk and more consistent than the Big River flute.

I'll probably pick up a Winglock too (next time my wife's not looking!:D)

I think you will like the express shorty. I really like mine. For me, the deepest call I have blown is the Zink SR-1. When I blow it, seems deeper than when I blow any of the calls I have (SMH, SR-1, supermag, shorty) and the GK original that my buddy has.

Yeah, this Shorty is really pretty good...I've also tuned my **** Lacy Big River Long flute and it sounds much better than it did before.

Between both calls, I should be in good shape until I can afford something even better.

My kids are having fun with the Flock Talk, sounds like a toy!:D

Just another update on the Sean Mann Express Shorty...I've been practicing with it every night for an hour or two since getting it, and last night I tuned it to go even lower--this call is near perfect for the geese in eastern PA...love this call!

Should be able to shave the reed and tune most and short reed to a low tune.
I blow a Foiles canadian classic that is really low. Can get high and loud with it also. Have a Double G call that I can vairy the sound on.
Everybodies style is different. I can get low on it doesnt mean you can and vise versa.
