I don't usually promote game calls here, especially with the number of quality custom call makers we have on the forum. But there are just some things I can't reproduce to my ear's satisfaction with a friction call. This witty-wha-too closing call is one of them. I'm quite adept at yelping and cutting on a mouth call, even got some personalized instruction from Alex Rutledge a couple years ago. But I never mastered an ultra soft purr, that sounded like a real hen, on a diaphragm either.
I picked up the Flextone Cluck n Purr today and would have to agree with Michael Waddell and their advertising that the call will be a game changer. Because of the closed nature of the call design, within minutes I was able to produce the softest whines, clucks and purrs I've ever made. The double diaphragm design allows the call to produce sweet yelps as well. There are three holes on the rubber barrel, like a flute, and by covering or uncovering the holes you can change the intensity, volume and pitch of the call. Think of it as a miniature double ended tube call inside a rubber sleeve...only 3 inches long. Flextone really did their homework on this baby. The slick pinecone design is kind retro as well.
To my ear, the perfect purrs that so long eluded me are contest quality, with all due respect to Champion caller Shane Simpson whom I heard lay down some utterly awesome soft calling in Wisconsin camp last spring. For those of us who don't have the thousands of hours it takes to master the mouth call there is finally hope.
