    What would you guys say is the best bang for the buck for goose calls?&nbsp; Nothing fancy or pretty, just puts out a good sound?<br>

    <P>While I may be a bit biased <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp;I don't think you can go wrong with the Zink PC-1 in Polycarbonate.&nbsp; If you have some experience, the PM-1 in Polycarbonate is a great choice.&nbsp; Both calls have the easy blowing gut system as I said in another post.&nbsp; Both calls are very user friendly and take very little air to operate.</P>

    Just bought a Zink PC-1 Polycarbonate. What a great call with an unbelievable price. Replaced a high end goose call ($125.00) and this thing actually sounds better. I have never been the best with a goose call. But I was double clucking with this call on the second day I had it.<br> <br> Ready for the early season to begin!<br> <br> Huffy<br>

    <P>I like my Winglok Delrin.&nbsp; It has a really sharp tone that I think carries quite far.&nbsp; Takes some practice, but for less than $50 I think it's an excellent call.</P>

    <P>HI GUYS, IS THE ZINKS PC-1 AND THE PC-1 POLYCARBONATE THE SAME THING, AND WHERE CAN I GET ONE FOR AROUND $30.00? I HAVE A HUNTERS SPECIALTIES SHORT REED AND AM HAVING LOADS OF TROUBLE JUST TRYING TO GET IT TO SOUND HALFWAY&nbsp;DECENT. I AM NOT REAL GOOD AT CALLING. DO THESE CALLS COME WITH A CASSETTE OR VIDEO? DOES ANYONE LIVE IN CLEVELAND THAT MAYBE WOULD SPEND A LITTLE TIME TO SHOW ME PROPERLY? IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!! GOD BLESS</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">to anwere your question, there is a difference in sound coming from a acrylic, wood, or poly carb call.&nbsp; each material will offer a little different sound and tone quality.&nbsp; all of the above mentioned materials will work well in most situations and all will bring geese to the gun.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">brian</P>

    <P>HI AGAIN, NOW I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU NEEDED AN EASY BLOWING, AND EASY TO LEARN GOOSE CALL, WHICH WOULD YOU PICK? I HAVE FOUND A GOOD DEAL ON THE ZINK POLYCARB. PC-I, AND THE ZINK MAXIMUS POLYCARB.. WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE? I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME PC-I LOVERS OUT THERE AND THANKS FOR YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS, BUT NO ONE HAS MENTIONED THE MAXIMUS WHICH I HAVE SEEN ON MANY WEBSITES. MOST OF THE WEBSITES THAT I HAVE VISITED GO INTO DETAIL ABOUT HOW EASY THE MAXIMUS IS EVEN FOR A NOVICE, BUT WEBSITES JUST SAY THAT THE PC-I IS A GOOD CALL. PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! I WANT TO MAKE SURE I GET THE RIGHT&nbsp;ONE AND PRACTICE PRIOR TO REGULAR SEASON. THANKS EVERYONE!!</P>

    <P>PC-1 is easier to blow than the PM-1 due to the built in back pressure. If you're a novice go with the PC-1.</P>

    I FOUND THE PC-1 FOR $ 19.95 PLUS SHIPPING. THEY ALSO HAD THE MAXIMUS FOR THE SAME PRICE.
