    It depends on which call it is. The little timbers are easy to run and are way ducky. When I used to work at a hunting store in college you couldn't give away an Olt call if there were Iverson's in the case. The older, and I mean like 60's & 70's took quite a bit of air to run. But the models Emery was making did not take that much air. They still have one of the best chuckles of any call. And they do sound like a duck. But they are sticking SOB's. I was always blowing off the tone board. And tuning them was a true work of art IMO. They will always be my most favorite call since it is the call my Gramps taught me to use when I first started. I am always on the hunt for them so if someone has any to sell let me know. Collection continues to grow.

    The WCs take next to NO air at all!
    The "bent reed" call takes a bit more.
    The older calls take even a little more air....
    I don't know anything about the acrylics but if they are anything like the other newer (late 70's and up) Iversons, they are a hunting machine.
    I have never had any sticking problem with any of my WCs....now freezing is another story but that is because of some of the temps we are blessed with.

    The World Champions calls did not stick as they had an Arkansas style tone board. But the straight tone board bent reed calls were a little rough in regards to sticking. Any moisture and you would have to blow out the under side of the reed.

    Wood-Dro,
    I have found that most of my best calling occurs when I present air from "the other end" of the call......even with the bent reed you can't tell if she is locked up or not! :D

    You probably aren't the first person wherein that would be the most applicable method of operation....:nutz
