Just wondering if anybody has a suggestion for a good double reed duck call. I would like to stay somewhere between the $75-$100 range. I am an average duck caller just looking for a good double reed. thanks

My two favorite double reeds are foiles timber rattler (129) and foiles straight suzy (35). I know both are not in your wanted price range but they are both great calls.

My favorite double reeds are the 1972 series Duck Commander calls for $65 and River Bottom Custom acrylic calls(you can go on the site, email him and have your call custom engraved/built/tuned. Very nice calls and they sound amazing) for $65, shipping included.

I really like my Lynch Mob Strangle Hold.  You can get the hunter's acrylic for $100 on their sight.  Its really got that rasp I want out of a double reed.  Also it will get real soft.  I also picked up a Mike McLemore double reed last year that I really like.

Check out I picked up a call from zack and really like it. He hand makes the calls and are very affordable you will be able to get two calls for that price. If you tak to him tell him I let you know about his site.

duck commander are all good calls i perfer the classic for raspier and quiter or the mule for loudness.  both are wood for loud you might want a zink ph-2. $120 but worth it

I'll second the motion on the Foiles Strait Suzy - I'm an average, still a lot to learn caller, but I have this call, a Buck Gardner Double Nasty, and a custom wood one I bought from someone on this site on my lanyard for ducks. The custom one really hits louder notes well, and gets great distance. The Gardner has a deeper, raspier tone to it, and I use it for middle-range calling. But my favorite is the Strait Suzy - it's got a nice tone to it, and hits the soft notes extremely well for me. It also feels like the most response of my calls.

I've been considering upping to a Zink PH-2 for a while, but blew my christmas money on new dekes, and need to get out to a cabelas or bass pro and blow the acrylics to see which I like best.

I have a Foiles straight suzy that I love.  It works great for long and close range.  I also have a wooden duck comander call that is great for working close birds.

I am a big fan of zink calls, try the ph-1, you might think the ph-2 is a little higher piched. Zink says the ph-2 is louder. (not so sure about this). but i do know the more u use them they do get broken in an sound very very nice. :)

Like swampman90 said the foiles straight suzy is great.  Its only $35 but sounds great.  The Hobo ICU2 is great but is about $135.  You can go to They have sveral double reeds from $80-$100.  Ive never heard one of their calls I didn't like.

Doesn't have them in stock yet, but Big Sean is building a duck call for this fall.  Should be available to the public in a few weeks.  I don't know if any of you have heard or tried his goose calls, but the duck call is equally as good.  Just throwin it out there...
