Foiles Migrators Strait Meat Honker Acrylic Goose Call Review:
I was fortunate to find the Advantage Max 4 camo version of this on sale at a regional sporting goods store for $125 (it typically sells for $160). Jeff Foiles' calls routinely are mentioned as the best in the biz. Jeff has established quite a crew and aggressively promotes his line-up of product. It isn't all just hype, his calls are great! The Straight Meat Honker requires little to no back pressure to create great goose sounds. Like most other named calls (Tim Grounds, Fred Zink, etc.), all Straight Meat Honkers are hand tuned by Jeff and his staff. I've found that other calls are louder and other calls that are more mellow, but in terms of overall sound and versatility, I would say that the Foiles Migrator Strait Meat Honker is the best call on the market (price aside). If I was just learning to blow a short reed call or if my kid was just beginning to learn how to call geese - this is what I'd buy.
