    How old is it? Bought on eBay and it was never used in the field. Tried to blow it and lost interest. Doesn’t run bad at all for me.
    But it’s so nice I would be ashamed to ruin it if an older call.

    Bills not made the Reload in a number years. That is a beaut of a call,especially in maple !
    I take it has the red guts and not the black guts in it ?
    Nice score.

    The red are good guts,the old black set were a tad softer and broke in pretty quick.

    I emailed Bill the other day. He emailed me back this morning!

    here’s what he said:


    I’m gonna say it was from the early 2000s, we made several hundred. Looks like it is birdseye maple. To this day the Reload is still one of my favorite calls.

    North central Indiana. I have seen a few specks here. But I’ve never killed one

    Can’t blame a guy for trying.
