    X2 there is literally hundreds of goose calls out there to choose from, learning how to tune one is the most important. I've used grounds, gk, lynch mob, gander valley, and now use death rows but essentially a goose call is a goose call there isn't any magical call out there that is better than every other $100+ call. I'll probably never switch calls again after these last ones I got. Guts play a bigger role than the actual call itself IMO.

    I know this is redundant but find a place that has variety n try em all! Different calls fit different folks better. However as stated above learning to tune a call is a huge factor. Most calls can be tuned to fit an individual callers specific needs.

    This x 100^
    I bought a couple molt gear calls from don last year and while I was ok on a call and killed birds all day the molt gear calls must just fit me well and after owning all of there calls I doubt I'll need anything else for years to come ( until the next molt gear comes out). I am however not the biggest fan off there duck calls I have the q-ax single and while I can run it I like my tnt calls better but I agree tuning has some to do with how well a call will work for YOU as well. For me and goose calls it has been a simple choice.. molt gear. I hope they release another call soon.

    I couldn't agree more. Once you are able to tune a call properly you will have a much easier time blowing any goose call you pick up. My favourite goose call is a Bay Country Shore Thing which is fairly easy to learn on and fairly easy to tune because of the tuning line on the "guts".

    Guts play a big role in ease of use. I do find it odd that most calls mentioned on this thread actually take quite a bit of air to blow. Not saying they aren't good calls, but they do take more air to run.

    Zink and Molt Gear take the cake for easiest blowing, good sounding calls as far as the big name companies are concerned.

    I recommend the Hayes Hammertime goose call, I learned on it, its pretty loud and can get some really goosey sounds out of it. I'm currently searching for something that I can use as a softer call.
