every time I pick up that soft touch I got from you in the gift exchange Scott I like the sound of it more and more. It makes some great tree calls, spot on yelping (hen and gobbler) and does the best gobbler cluck/cutts I have ever heard from a pot call. It nails that funky hollow tone that they have. I still prefer a slate for purring but that's about it. Also, it is difficult to get real loud with it, but that's not what it was made for anyways.
