Hello

So have some birthday cash (30 today whoohoo), looking at upgrading to a pinkfoot specific call. My mate uses the DJ illinois one and it sounds great, and there is also the Archie Jordon one, and then others swear by some of the snow geese calls. Any thoughts?

I have 3 Snow Goose calls (MSG-96) all tuned to different pitches. I also got hold of an Olt-77 this season which sounds nice too. Most will do the job fine and won't jam when wet.

The only real differance with the plastic Snow Goose calls is they are usually about half the cost of a wooden one.

If going for a wood call nothing will come close to a olt

Most people say they 2 you have said above sound the same i think other wise i would not thank you for either

I use 2 snow goose call's as Mark has said above i have used these call's for many yrs with no problem and easy to use

Regards

I may have turned 30 but I feel 40, it must be all those long walks in fickle weather chasing ducks following evenings with ubiquitous quantities of hot speyside amber. I must wean myself off the malts.

Thanks chaps, I am afraid I did not get your message until this morning so I did sniff a few drams on Saturday, thats another bottle of Talisker processed!

I like the idea of the wooden DJ illinois or the AJ call, someone has said they are the same call just branded differently?

I know this thread was a few pages back but just curious, does anyone still use the P.S OLT L-22 for pinks?
