I also just figured some woods play better than others. So if your making a striker what is the ideal weight that you would want it? I know each wood weighs different so I'm just going to make up some numbers for example. Do you want them to weigh between 10-15 grams.
It somewhat depends on how you play a pot call, if you play more aggressively you can get by with a lighter striker, because your putting more pressure down on that striker, if you play more softly your better off with a little heavier striker so the striker performs up it's top ability to get your best sound and make the call play easier.
In grams = 18.0 _ 33.0
In oz = .634 _ 1.164
