Mick Lacy Game Calls Chinook Short Reed Goose Call Review:
When it comes to a entry point for short reed goose calls at a reasonalbe price, Mick Lacy kicks those $100+ dollar calls in the mouth with his Chinook Short Reed call. It's an attractive and easy to blow call that will find it's way onto many a lanyard. Molded from acrylic, this call provides an excellent range for its price. It's got a good mix of high volume ability and low, soft tones. The call doesn't operate as well on the high end of the notes the way I'd like, but the overall tonal qualities at the lower end are good. The fixed reed ensures your call stays tuned to Mick's specifications - a nice bonus. The durability of this call is questionable - after a couple of hunting trips the call cracked. Considering Mick Lacy's customer service and considering the low price paid for this call, it's only a bump in the road.
If you want to experiment with short reeds or are looking for a cost effective way to get started, this is your ticket. Mick Lacy Game Calls backs up their products with great customer service.
