I'm thinking about getting another RNT call.  I have hunted with the short barrel call for about 4 years.  Do their other calls basically sound the same or are there some distinctions?

Not sure what yours is like but I have a double reed wood old style I like alot. Not a lot on the high end but for low to moderate volume sounds great.  I did by a Bernie Boyles double reed that sounds better for half the price .

I use Bob Hayes custom duck calls. I tried out a daisey cutter and I'm glad I tried it before I bought it. Check out Hayes calls, his prices are great and they have become the only calls I use now.The duck calls come in different styles but his "Quick and the Dead" are amazing. Real easy to hammer down on high to the low end.

I currently have 3 RNT calls.  I have an acrylic Original (loud sucka!), acrylic short barrel in Green Tea (I do like this call) and a Hunter in Cocobolla/Poly.  I like the Hunter for a little mellower/quieter call.  I hardly ever use the acrylic calls anymore. 

My "go to" call lately has been my Calef Double Talk.

Went to the local hunting store and blew some RNT calls and the other styles were not really what I wanted.  Ended up with an Echo XLT which had the low end I wanted.  The RNT Acrylic Originals really had the top end volume...whew, liked to scared the whole store when I cut loose on it!

Been practicing on the XLT the last few days and I believe it is going to do just right.

Another RNT is still in my future though, when next year's birthday funds come back around!

Try the Old Style. It is a great hunting call if you are like me and do not believe in a lot of calling in the first place. The will get down low and still sound good-------very easy to blow and they will not spook ducks when you have them coming in if you have tight air pressure. I love mine and prior to it, I was a died in the wool cut down D2 Keyhole Olt man.

The Old Style tapers off well and they are easy to cluck with.

I was using a Buck Gardner single reed and a Buck G. Double reed early last season, My wife bought me a Bois d'Arc RNT Daisy cutter for christmas. I immediately noticed a drastic difference in the way the ducks responded. It was also eaiser to blow, sounded more realistic, and didnt seize up. I love it!!! The only call left on my lanyard..I may shoot for a micro hen next.

I have 3 RNT calls the Short Barrel (Cocobolo), Daisy Cutter (black), Hunter (Coco/poly).  I will be purchasing a MVP or Original next.  Most calls that RNT has available can be made to sound similar with the correct tuning.  However straight out of the box there are 4 main differences between calls and here they are:

Short Barrel/Timbre: Mellow, amazing low end, and good middle, how ever the real high end when you want to reach out and grab their attention isn't there.  These calls are built to be used close range and in timber.

Daisy Cutter/Hunter: Great all around call. Can cover low end to big water call. The most versitale calls that RNT has.

MVP/Original: Covers the big water down to the small ponds.  Generally not used for timber, but open fields and marshes; they work wonders.

Hope this helps.
