Elite Calls

Cache

Three-time world duck calling champion Brad Allen has put years of hunting and competition calling experience into creating Elite Calls. Allen designed Elite's Cache call to offer the soft, quiet quacks needed for up-close calling, and when the high-volume approach isn't successful. The Cache's smaller bore gives it an edge for nasally quacks for finishing ducks.

Edge

Following the release of the Cache, Brad Allen was asked to launch a double-reed call, and he answered with the Elite Edge. The Edge offers user friendly operation and familiarity for double-reed aficionados, but doesn't sacrifice volume or tonal range.
