    Stump just added a bunch of choices in an cnc Alpha on his site,check them out !
    Its,a tough choice between the Alpha and CWF, Id have to favor the CWF.

    I'm going to need a blackwood or hedge Alpha to make a true comparison. Come on Stump... do it for science o_O

    Don't know if opinions/comparisons have been posted. But here's my $.02.

    The CWF has a hair more back pressure. That makes it a little more user friendly. It also makes hitting each note of a greeter dead on a lot easier. The CWF is all raspy hen top to bottom.

    The Alpha has less back pressure. It takes more air and it loses air a little quicker. I think the Alpha is louder but that's arguable. It has that easy ability to bend notes like a GD, but with all the CWF raspiness on top.

    Both are terrific calls. It really falls to your preference on back pressure, imo.

    I got a hold of a Cranberry Alpha. Very nice call but I still preferred my second Gen quack ops. I tried tuning the cran alpha but couldn't get it close enough to where I liked it more then that Quack Ops. I did prefer the feed on it slightly.

    My experience has been different. Every CWF I have run has been considerably looser than the Alphas and take air better on the top end. The Alphas have a sweet feed and bottom end though. I will say this as a caveat, the majority of CWFs that I've run have been made either for myself or Seth Fields so they might run a bit different or looser than the average CWF.

    Nope, just like our calls looser, you can do more with em that way, just harder to control
