Worn in guts

What does this mean on your goose call.

It just means a more hollow, realistic sound to your call.

Best I can understand is that after blowing a call for a long time, the reed starts to get worn down a little bit and your call will start to sound a little different, most of the time for the better.

It takes a really long time to get the reed broken in so some of the call makers are selling "guts" that have essentially been broken in already.

You can get the sound of a call that is been used for awhile right out of the box.

If you have a goose call you can see how worn in by lifting up the reed and looking at the tone channels on the guts. As a call gets warn in the reed with create an impression in the guts. This allows the reed to travel deeper into the tone channel and also travel with less resistance. Worn in guts will usually give you a more "goosey" sound. Mellower and more responsive. I can sound way more realistic on worn in guts than I can with a call right out of the box.

Tim Grounds just came out with the Triple Crown guts that are exact replicas of the guts that Kelly Powers has been blowing for years in competitions. The are $50 just for the guts so they are a little spendy. I have a set in a Pro Super Magnum and they do sound awesome.

Some guts wear in faster than others. Jeff Foiles switched to his "green guts" a few years ago because they wear in faster. I have a Strait Meat Honker that is the best sounding call that I have that is worn in perfectly. GK calls also has some guts that wear in rather quickly. The best thing to do is just blow, blow, and keep blowing until your guts start wearing in and you will notice a different sound. So should the geese grin.gif

as you blow a short reed, the reed actually wears the sides of the tone channel as it vibrates up and down, in and out of the channel, Changing the sound, it gives the call more versatility over time. many methods have been tried to do this without blowing the call for a few years, like hooking them up to vaccums and such, but really you can't do it as well as you can just by blowing them. I make alot of calls as a hobby buisiness, and love to help guys out.. just ask!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
