I am a V cut person myself but in all of this conversation, its about marketing and have you noticed that some mouth calls are now up to 10 dollars. I am not sure where it will end, but as long as there is a market and people will pay, based on who made the call and what contest they won and so on.
ORIGINAL: Yelp softly
I don't necessarily agree with your market them cheaply assessment. Wisely, Yes! If folks wanted cheap turkey calls they'll just buy the HS strut from Wally World. There will be a certain market for the high end calls and the successful guys will find the right balance between price and top-end call reputation. Drop your prices too low and risk being viewed as a cheap-o call produced in bulk.
Back to the original question about cuts. I personally use the Woodhaven calls and I believe that the latex thickness is just as important as the cut. As an example, I bought a Hotwings pack last year. It was a set of 3 calls all with identical batwing cuts. The difference is in reed thickness. The thinner the reeds, the easier the call is to blow and softer yelps can be made. The thicker latex stands up well to the sharp cutts and makes crisp cackles.
Can you have too many? NOT IF THEY WORK! If you only make 3 kinds, some hunter might just buy his 4th from somebody else.
