Diaphragm

Postby grunt_doc » September 27th, 2008, 2:20 pm

Is there any kind of diaphragm that is better suited for fall hunting (kee-kee)?  I'm not talking about brands, but single/tripple/split reed ect. type calls.  The only way I can get mine to do it now is if it's really loud.  Would a single reed be able to get a nice quiet kee-kee?

Hey Doc,

I've found that any single reed is best for the kee kee. I also use doubles and triples but they are well broken in by this time. I find that any call that is well broken in will work but I prefer a single reed.

Thanks,
Clark

The short answer is most straight reeds are usually the best for kee-kees.  Split reeds, like V's, Cutter's, or Wing cuts will make a kee-kee, but they tend to squeak some.  All you want is that low soft whistle.  A single, double, or even triple will work well as long as it's a straight reed.

Just my 2 cents!
