The BSOD (Black Stick Of Death) Uncut Single Reed Duck Call by Rolling Thunder Game Calls has an unmodified tone board and requires that the tone board be modified or cut to suit the individual caller's voice. (This item includes the BSOD barrel with the unmodified tone board) This is the call for the duck hunter that is looking to make his own modifications and achieve his own unique duck calling style. Cut correctly, the Uncut BSOD duck call is an extremely loud call. Its tone board is an Arkansas style single reed duck call with a keyhole airway that can be tuned or cut to suit each caller. As with all Rolling Thunder Game Call products, the BSOD Uncut Duck Call comes with an unconditional lifetime guarantee.
Volume matters! Don't let anyone convince you otherwise. Under intense hunting pressure and competition, being able to be heard by the ducks is absolutely critical. Don't buy into the quiet calling stuff. BSOD produces the most realistic duck tones of any call on the market. It is pretty difficult to make main street calling contest type sounds with BSOD because it has been tuned to sound like a duck. BSOD has a bark that resembles a large group of happy hen mallards, and when blown correctly is unbelievably effective at talking those big groups of mallards into giving it up.
Each insert (tone board) and reed is individually hand tuned and blown before being packaged. If a call isn't good enough to kill ducks, we're not going to waste your time with it. You can have confidence that each call you buy has been tuned to the picky ears of BSOD experienced pro-staff.
The quality of a cut down call's material is critical to optimizing sound and tone. If a material is too porous it won't have the ability to be finished and the reed will be prone to stick. Also, if a cut down is constructed from material that is too dense it prohibits the hunter from tuning the call to his personal calling style. At Rolling Thunder Game Calls they have constructed calls from a custom poly blend that optimizes volume, tone, and tune-ability.
The BSOD's material on their duck calls are extremely durable. Their duck calls are constructed from a custom poly blend that will withstand temperature up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit! Additionally, the BSOD's construction is so rigid it can withstand being run over by a full size pickup truck.
