I'm looking for a good long distance call to get their attention from a long ways out. The heartland calls seem interesting... or maybe the GK little giant. Any other suggestions?

I agree with the flag. That is the easiest and deadly thing to use to get geese locked on you from a long distance.

Yes, I know flagging works great....I'm still looking for call suggestions though :roll:

The hands down loudest call I own is a Heartland Calls wood G-Force. It is actually louder than the same model I have in acrylic, dunno why. It is posatively ear ringing.

Interesting that you brought up Heartlands calls....I've been thinking about the X-out. I hear their delrin screams.

I have the acrylic X-out, I don't believe it is as loud as my G-force wood call, but plenty loud and the easiest blowing of the entire line in my opinion. I must admit to a bias here, Heartland is just down the road from me, and I learned to call well with those calls. I call better with them because they are the calls I became confident with and they require quite similar air pressure from one call to the next. The X-out gives a great ringing sound that carries well. That call, in my hands anyway, will not give the truely soft subtle sounds of other calls in the line, but if I need ot coax geese I reach for the Flatliner as a matter of course.

Just my rather biased opinion.

I'm not worried about being soft and subtle as my Winglock delrin will do the job for that end of it........I just want something fast and loud, to get their attention........seems like the X-out may be the answer, sounds great on the soundfiles anyhoo.

have you thought about a halfbreed its a fairly high pitched call a buddy of mine uses one and claims its a great"attention getter"
all i use is a flag and a winglock delerin. hasn't let me down yet
sometime we have to get out of the blinds and wave the flag a bit harder than other times but seems to work.

I ended up getting a Heartlands pip-squeak in delrin....that little call really rocks, very loud and fast. I once owned a Graveyard Dead goose call by Cutt Down, was HUGELY dissappointing....gave it away.

I use a half breed for a high pitched call, but my buddy uses a GK, which I plan to get at some point, both his original and LG are awesome. Also I would suggest the I-5 killer, another really nice call
