Post Haydels duck calls.
I just purchased my first Haydels duck. I got the big barrel cut down. This is the first Haydel call I have ever had. It sounds good to my ears. I've always used duck commander calls and had great success with them. What's y'all's opinion on the Haydels calls?

I've always loved Haydel calls. Some of my favorites are the dirty rice, carbon cutter, and red leg. They are some of the best sounding calls on the market IMO.

Honestly, even before I sold Killer Kallz, only Haydels I would use was the teal & the whistle. I just never cared for them.

I still like my killer kall more than any of them. The others just can't touch the "custom cut" triple Reed rob put together for me.

Haydels and DC calls are great to learn on and can sound relatively good. But, if you're anything like me you'll get tired of the same old cadence range and lack of real control and want to upgrade. Once you master a good single reed you'll never go back. Haydels and DCs are like training wheels.

I hunted with the DR-85 for years. Would buy 4 before season because they crack easy when it gets really cold. Another issue is.................they smell like a sack of assholes when new!!!!!

I'm a single reed guy, and a daisy cutter and short barrel have been my go to's, but I bought a field proven double reed acrylic, and it's the best sounding double reed I've ever heard.

X2. Couldn't figure out how to put it with sounding like a wanna be comp caller. Daisy cutter and short barrels are my go to calls. Got a big Ole MVP for windy days and showing off

I agree that DRs can sound great also, but I prefer an Arkansas style toneboard. Echo and RNT make some great ones. I just think the further you can get from a Louisiana floating toneboard the better off you'll be. They're like driving and automatic. Arkansas style toneboards, single or double, are like driving stick.

Its either the plastic they use, or they stick them up a fat dudes bloated ass and make him fart to tune them.

I have been a DC fan since they came out. My hunting lanyard this yr will have a DC and the Southern Wind I got from Camo this summer. The call came as a double and I was tempted to leave it alone. It was really good and easy to handle. I can't ever believe I can't make a call sound better so I tuned a single for it and put a little more whine to the call. I agree w/ the AR style tone-board. If you take the haydel call apart you can throw it away. I had a DR-85 yrs ago and took apart to clean the snuff out of it. Never sounded worth a damn afterwards. :lol:
The visual of the described tuning method will definitely keep me from buying one again. :lol:

The smell comes from something they add to the plastic to keep it from cracking

I've been using the same dr85 for 6 years. It cracked and I put a bead of superglue on the crack and it still holding. Sounds good too. I use a Riceland teal call and Riceland Speck calls and any whistle I can steal from one of my buddies

Told ya. Bout to buy a Gander Valley Homewrecker (2nd one and they be bad) and he has a new poly call about to be released as well that I will buy asap. Then I'll be set this season. I've never cared for a haydel.

My mentality should always be in question. The reason I bought the dam call was just to start a collection of them. It sounds good and this one doesn't smell like a sack of buttholes. My buddies speck call with the rubber end piece smelt like chit. I just like fooling around with calls and these are cheap enought to do that with. I have one of those fancy 100+ dollar all acrylic calls, but truthfully I have killed just as many ducks with a 15$ wooden call as I have with a acrylic, but it is pretty on the lanyard.

I've had Haydels, they are very hard to get sounding right if you ever clean them.


I really like my Duck Commander calls, I've got a duck picker that I tuned just like I like it and I'd put it against any other call in a meat competition.

Learned on faulk single read. Then went to a dr 85 then switched to a Single Reed and never looked back. I currently own a hobo prime meat. I love it but I think the next call I get is gonna be a daisy cutter.

finger nail file and a pair of scissors and a sharp knife. If reed is not in correctly you'll never get it right. Hold reed tip to tip between fingers and squeeze witch ever way it bows you put the bow to wear it goes away from the tone board...that simple step stumps alot of people

What is wrong with your call? To high/low or does it take to much/ little to blow

Reeds are cheap don't be afraid to fuck them up. Soundboards are not.
