For the money a winglock short reed is a pretty good call and it will allow you to try out a shortreed first without breaking the bank. Learn how you like a call tuned and then blow your money on a high dollar acrylic. I paid $35 for mine and it was money well spent. I use it on a regular basis.

I picked up a Win lock from the site in the Walnut. Nice easy blowing short reed and great sound for the dollar. While everyone has an opinion about calls I have no doubt that this call will be with you for a long time. Great for a beginner and an old pro like GG.

Tru-Tone Polycarb, $30. Pretty easy to blow, but tuned a little higher for those medium sized geese. Just depends on where you hunt I guess. :wink:

I have a Meat Grinder and its a good call, but have just got a Lew's Goose Call. found it easier to blow, deeper sound to it. Dang nice call. I would say that it is a better buy than the grinder.

Im not a fan of the meat grinder. I have a SMH. I have problems with the reed always getting out of tune.

Just got me a Lew's call also. The thing is VERY deep and easy blowing. Can get real loud and real soft. Love it. Can do everything my SMH can do and its reed doesnt slip. ;)

Id suggest it to anyone. Beauty part was it was only $49 and its acrylic. For an extra $20 I got Ty engraved into it. Looks smooth. CHECK EM OUT!
