The Smack Down talks all kinds of smack - soft purrs, clucks, and tree yelps or loud cutting and excited yelps. This new black blended latex is awesome.
The Spur Collector is the easiest diaphragm call you will ever use. Perfect for beginners to expert calling due to its easy to blow V cut, which produces clear yelps to loud and raspy cutts. So versatile, it works great for both spring or fall hunting.
The Kung Fu Chop is an easy to use 3 reed call that is raspy from low to high end allowing you to produce anything from raspy hard note cutts to realistic throaty yelps.
The Freak Nasty is a must for fooling the wariest of ol’ gobblers. If you are looking for a diaphragm that has plenty of back bone for super and aggressive calling, yet has enough versatility to sweet talk any gobbler with soft and seductive yelps and clucks, this is your call.
The Black Betty produces everthing from clean kee kees to bossy yelps. The new black blended latex is versatile and forgiving.

Place the call carefully against the roof or your mouth keeping the longer reed on top and facing out. Always exhale air, never inhale air through mouth. Hold in place by applying pressure with the back or middle of tongue. While holding call in place with tongue exhale gradually and drop your jaw as you exhale. Vary the configuration of your mouth and rhythm in which you drop your jaw to achieve the desired sounds.
To achieve a higher note apply more tongue pressure to the call. It may help to associate words to the desired call. For example, use the words chick or chuck for a yelp, the word pic works well for a cluck, and the word pack, blown with more pressure, produces a good cutting sound. To create the sound of a purr try fluttering your tongue across the latex reeds.
