What is better single reed or double reed duck calls?
“Single-reed calls have more range and are more versatile than double-reed calls, but they are also a little more difficult to master. Double-reed calls take more air to blow and don’t have as much range as single-reed models. But most double-reed calls have a ‘sweet spot’ that sounds very realistic to passing ducks.”
What is the tone board on a duck call?
Tone board: The part of the insert upon which the reed or reeds rest. Some call-makers will carve so-called “spit grooves” into the tone board to help prevent the reed from sticking. This happens when there is excessive moisture (i.e., too much spit).
Why are acrylic duck calls better?
Acrylic is a dense material, so these duck calls are the most durable. They produce a sharp tone at a higher volume than wood and polycarbonate calls, so they’re a good choice for long-range duck calling. In addition, acrylic duck calls are easier to maintain and produce more consistent sounds than wood calls.
