Before you buy you should look at some of the call some on this forum make. I sure that Morgan, ol bumpy, Magnolia game call and others could fix you up with a great call.

The Woodhaven crew took the top 4 spots in the friction contest this year, but I am not sure which calls were used. I have been very impressed with glass and crystal from both David Halloran and Pat Strawser

I have a cherry classic crystal. It was given to me by a prostaffer two years ago. Don't know that I'd spend the money or not, but it is, without a doubt, one of the best calls out there, in my opinion.

Morgan makes some fine sounding calls. I know that two gobblers were REAL impressed with them last season..... Both were middle of the afternoon birds that had been hunted hard......Got a couple of glass and slate calls made by Magnolia Game Calls....they are sweet, too.....

slave I was in nashville last weekend and I tried out all the woodhaven slates and they all sounded good but the price is pretty high on them. I would check into some of the calls made by guys on this forum first, some of these guys make some beautiful calls!

I have one and like it a lot. It was kind of high but it was worth it to me. I do agree that you could probably get a custom made glass call that is just as good if not better for less money. You just need to make sure you do your homework and buy from a reputable call maker.

You could get two or three of the Magnolia calls for $80. Maybe 1 each from Bumpy, Morgan and Gary. There is no way a mass-produced call should bring that much money, IMO. Nothing against Woodhaven, I have several of their diaphragms, but I can't bring myself to spend $80. My opinion may change if I ever played one, but I doubt it.

If you can find the Southland calls they are very close to the Woodhaven but about 30 to 40 dollars less. I have heard several of the Southland calls and they sound as good as the Woodhavens that I own. I know the Sports Center in Vicksburg has the Southland calls.

they are top quality calls, but I am a big fan of Southland Game Calls. Give them a try. Mr. Jr. is the man who taught Mike Pentecost to make calls. Southland's new crystal (can't remember the name) is the best sounding pot that I have ever heard. The best 2 tone yelps you can get. It sounds like someone who can really play a mouth call. A fine addition to a collection. I have one, but got a PRETTY good deal on it javascript:insertsmiley('[flapper]%20','/forum/images/emoticons/msp_flapper.gif')
