I found that the smaller size calls had the better sound, the 3" surfaces had that nice higher pitch that rolled over in to that old school raspy sound, that I loved in a call. I carried one a few years and called birds in with it. I quit carring it because it was a pain in the butt to opperate. They seem to be very finicky to surface and only aloud you certain days it would play/sound right. You would think being a metal surface moisture wouldn't effect it, but on the contrary it was very effected. There are a lot of guys out there that sware by them, and a few that sware at them, I was more on the latter side. As far as a metal surface copper is by far the better sounding surface, but they can be very finicky and very touchy to the elements. In a controlled environment they are without a dought one of the best sounding calls out there, but in the field if it's a 50/50 chance that call will play when you need it too, that's not what I want out of a call I'm depending on. There some very good copper call builders out there, that build many different size calls and some great sounding calls. Strikers must be kept very clean as that surface builds up fast on the tips.
Best of luck with your call, I'm hoping you get a good one that performs great for you, they are a very good sounding call.
