    It's my absolute favorite. Easy to blow and raspy when I want it to be. I can be quiet and has enough volume when I need it.

    For Haydels I really like the redleg one.
    No damn cork. No sticking. Doesn't tend to load up or change tone after heavy use. Good standard sort of volume.
    It's a plastic call that can get er done imo.
    Like any call the operator makes it.
    Many doubles I have tried sound great but after heavy use things change. I think the Haydels setup on this kicks butt(dr85) with nicer shape. I don't have a dr85 so can't confirm.
    I'd be fine on most days runnin a redleg.

    First pro is that it is relatively inexpensive , and won't break the bank. It really all boils down to your calling style. Some folks like single reads, some folks like doubles. I don't own one, but my best bud blows one occasionally ( he is a Haydell addict). It has built in sass ( emotion) that i think sounds like a real duck. I tend to call that way when hunting anyway, so it would probably be overkill in my hands.

    There is one on my lanyard next to my dr-85. Pros- easy to use, cheap, kills ducks. Cons- some folks don't like the shape, mine sticks with a fair amount of moisture.

    My favorite hunting partner raises English callers and flighted mallards, and his favorite call is a Dirty Rice.
