    Cody Woodsman are great calls. My personal favorite is a Blodgett double trouble, one side is slate and the other is glass.

    I have a Primos Power Crystal and love it. I own many peg and pot calls, but this is the one I usually reach for first. It can reach out a grab gobbler from great distance or you can soft talk on it too. That call has produced at least one of every subspecies for me over the years. Don't hesitate to buy one.

    Slate call

    I am fond of the Primos Power Crystal and the Woodhaven Calls. If you can try some out at Cabelas or another retailer that would really help you. APB

    Consider custom calls

    I would like to throw something else at you; custom calls.

    Here are three:

    WWW.PURDYSCUSTOMTURKEYCALLS.COM
    http://www.rutnstrutgamecalls.com
    WWW.WOODBUTCHERCALLS.COM

    At the recent National Wild Turkey Federation Midwest Call Contest in Madison, WI, Bill at Purdy's took an honorable mention on an aluminum. Tim at RutnStrut took first overall with an anodized aluminum. I am not sure how WoodButcher did, but I played his calls and they were great.

    Just something to consider.

    I like a good custom call, but if you want a store bought, Cody is about as good as it gets.

    You simply can NOT come close to the authentic quality sound of a custom call. I would strongly suggest you take a serious look at several. The mass produced plastic calls made popular today because of their cheap production methods don't even begin to compare and sound like junk compared to any custom model. You want a Gobbler killin' meat call, buy a custom!

    check out Knight & Hales friction calls. I haven't used the primos so I'm too sure about that one.

    I totally agree. I have several brands of calls & the 1st I reach for is Primos Power Crystal, 2nd is Knight & Hale ol yeller. That's when I'm not using diaphram calls.

    Blodget slates are some of the best made calls around period. You pay for them, but not only do they sound gret they look great too. Some of the purtiest custom calls I have seen.

    Cody

    While the Cody calls are a little more expensive, they are well worth the price. Generally speaking, you are going to get what you pay for.

    i think the Primos Jackpot calls sound good (both the slate and glass). I have had good luck with the Freak (frictionite) call. It has good sound and is very easy to use.

    The Primos Freak is good slate that won't cost too much...And it comes with (in my opinion) the best striker on the market, the purple heart striker...!
