    I just bought a new acrylic macrohen, spent an hour on it. I’m no pro but have called in a lotta ducks. I’m not impressed. Seems like it takes a lot of air to keep it going. Feeder chuckle is difficult. Maybe it’s just me. Does any one else have one and what’s your all thoughts.

    Sounds like the reed is a tad to long for you.

    Pull the reed and cork out. Use a foam nail file and sand the end of the reed that's sits under the cork to shorten the reed just a tad. Place reed and cork back into the call and blow. Repeat this process till you dial it in

    Go slow!!!! A bit goes a long ways.
    Hope that you find that you enjoy the call. I've blown a few and had no complaints
