    <P>rhino4&nbsp; my suggestion would be go and buy one goose call, especially if you are going to go short reed, just spend the money on one good one and stick with it. i am glad i bought my gadus short reed when i did. i spent 125.00 but am happy as a lark with it. you could get one for under 50.00 then decide you want something a little louder or smoother or easier to blow and spend another 50-100. ask the guys around i now zink has a good one. just my opinion. ask dewayne or chappy and they will give you their opionions. good luck</P>

    <P>I bought a Zink's PC-1 at the decoy show and love it! ($30!!!) A friend had purchased a Foiles polycarb version of one of their high ends and has trouble learning it (harder to blow), tried my Zink's and now has one too! Nice call, Great price!<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/thumb.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P>

    <P>I'll go along with JSchreck and recommend the Zink Polycarb short reed.&nbsp; The PC-1 is a bit easier to run than the PM-1, which is designed as a&nbsp;more advanced call.&nbsp; Great calls for $30.00 and we'll have them at Layout University.&nbsp;</P>

    I got a Foiles Polycarb, their cheaper one, bought it at the SYC event a few years ago.&nbsp; Jeff was their, blew both the Polycarb and the Acrylic and couldn't really tell the difference.&nbsp; Whatever why you go make sure you buy a good CD that will teach you.

    <P>Zink also has a "hunter" version of the famous SR-1.&nbsp; Cocobola with a poly insert.&nbsp; Awesome call for a moderate price.</P>

    Thanks for the offer fellas, sorry about the lack of follow up. I've been MIA recently. Received my PC-1 in the mail yesterday and my edition of Canadas Gone Wild.

    Brian, maybe we can link up and you can give me some calling tips.

    Thanks again.

    Mike

    I just purchased the PC-1 in poly at Fin, Fur and Feather.&nbsp; Now I just need someone in the Central Ohio area to show me how to use it.&nbsp; I can get a holk out of it but... I sure need some practice and some coaching.&nbsp; <br> <br> What instructional video's or cd's do you guys recommend?<br> <br> Brad<br> <br>

    <P>Get Zink's "Ancient Art of Paralyzing" to learn how to blow your new call.&nbsp; Also be sure to try and make it to Fin, Feather &amp; Fur on August 18th or the 25th for a goose calling seminar presented by Fred Zink himself and the current World Champion Field Hudnall.&nbsp; If that doesn't fit your schedule, drop me a PM and let me know your schedule and I'll see if I can help you out.</P>

    <P>We have the "Ancient Art Of Paralyzing" video in stock.&nbsp; It is in VHS format.&nbsp; If you'd like one, drop me an email at <A href="mailto:[email protected]" target=_blank>[email protected]</A> and I'll get you one out.</P>

    I saw that Zink was going to be at Fin, Fur and Feather. Probably won't be able to make either of those dates.&nbsp; We are expecting the arival of our first child anytime now.&nbsp; Probably not a good idea for me to wonder to a calling seminar right now.&nbsp; Got to be on good behavior this time of year so that the passes come freely come December and January.&nbsp; <br> <br> <br> Brad<br>

    Glad to see that the upcoming birth of your first hasn't caused you to go balmy in the head. That's sound thinking.<br> Best of luck with everything.<br> Dan<br> <br>

    <br> Thanks Dan.&nbsp; We are inside the 1 week mark.&nbsp; Dove and early goose are probably out but I figure it's a good comprimise for regular-late season.<br> <br> I'll be getting a meeting together before too long.&nbsp; Need to get things in order for Youth Day.<br> <br> I'll be letting everyone know when the new addition get's here.<br> <br> Brad<br> <br>
