This is the first call out of my vest every time I go out. It sounds great and I hate switching to anything else when a bird does not respond to it but what are ya gonna do. I love Primos!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butchy2 Great Pot Call
I have used this call for four years and have taken eight toms with it. It has excellent tonal quality, and can allow for a varied pitch range. It makes excellent soft purrs, yelps and clucks with little pressure... but don't get it wet! Of course don't get ANY slate call wet... none work well wet. I love the call... and it can't be beat for the price.

Fresh out of the plastic, I called one in 15 minutes after sitting down. Great call - great sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by leog100 Best if used inside a ground Blind
I've called in several gobblers with this Ol Betsy. But beware, this call MUST be used inside a gound blind on windy days where you wont get any dust on the slate. Ive used it outside of a ground blind, and it doesnt work properly due to all the dust in the air. I had to keep "cleaning" it with saliva. But when it works, it sure is loud and clear. Good buy for the money.

I know you have been asked many times on directions on how to use this call. But could you please let me know. I really like this call but having trouble calling. I am not sure if I am doing it right\ Thank you Sue
As I have seen in some reviews the striker used can make a lot of difference in the call working as it should. Another very important point is the striker "pitch" or "angle" in relation to the slate. Once the correct "pitch" is found ,the perfect yelp can be acheived with a dime sized oval drawn on the slate with the striker.
If your having problems you might wanna get a different striker, the one that comes with it is good but I use an after market H. S. strut striker. Other than that just keep trying different ways of holding it and practice.
