    I own two C&S double reeds and like them a lot. I have a saliva issue when calling resulting in lock ups. I contacted Mike and he graciously offered to add spit grooves to help with the locking issue. I sent the calls and received them back in less than a week!!
    When I am due for a new call I know what will be going on my lanyard..

    I was trying to figure out which call would suit me best. Any comments between the preacher, justifier and the archangel. Im looking for a raspy, fairly aggressive call and something loud but not too loud. Something similar to Stumps Cold weather fan?

    Id go with the Archangel in that case,should pair nicely with a CWF.

    I have a Preacher and Justifier, I would not classify either one as overly loud. I have not tried the Archangel so would defer to Drakestar.
    I love both my C&S calls.
    Good luck with your decision

    Which call of yours has more rattle and which one do you like running better in most situations if might ask?

    I would say the Preacher has a more “nasal” tone and Justifier is a touch louder and a little more rattle/rasp.
    I use the Justifier for open water, but the Preacher is the closer

    I have an archangel. It’s “ok”. It’s higher pitched than what I’m used to but it runs pretty good. I still prefer my RNT’s.
