    I run a bunch of different Winglock goose calls. Some high pitched some low.

    Works for me.

    Deep goose calls usually don't run as fast but in a hunting situation you probably don't need alot of speed. Just some good meat notes. For awhile I toted several goose calls around...then realized you just need one good one...well maybe two. I did find that sometimes the geese loved the sound of one over the other on a given day or location. So many good calls out there made by some great folks!

    Many years ago I foolishly sold an early numberred, Ivory, Foiles SMH to another Fuger.
    It had light grey translucent guts that I am not sure were stock. I never heard or blew a better one. Not too big a deal as I do not hunt Honkers anymore. I think it was to a guy from Kansas, and he must have killed a bunch with it.

    Those gray guts came out of his polycarb call. I can't remember the name of that call, but it was a decent call for sure and those guts were pretty good too. I liked them in certain calls of his more than his green guts.

    That call is the Foiles "Meat Grinder"...and yes, for a poly carb it does sound very good! Actually sounds even better once you break it in...pretty sure they still come with the grey guts. I have the green as well. They are about the same for sound and ease of use.

    Best . . .there are so many great choices out there. I would consider any of these and I've tried a bunch: C&S disciple, Saunders traffic, Bay Country Shore thing, Grounds G Overhauler, Foiles SMH, and Zink Little man are all sweet calls.
