From my experience this is the best low end slate . It conditions easily and sounds very good. This is my main call and it is the first call I take out and the last one I put away. Good beginner call.
P.S. the striker is JUNK

Another NO Sound at all!
I tried this in the store with a cheap hardwood striker. It sounded great and was as easy as any of them to use. It was cheap at $12 so I bought it.
Brought it home and tried it right out of the box. No SOUND resulted from purrs, yelps or clucks at all. So I used the included scotch brite pad and sanded evenly in one direction. Tried again and no sound at all. So I roughed up the striker with 150 grit sand paper. Still no sound.
I saw another review that said they could get no sound. I think I was unlucky enough to get a bad one.
Returning today and getting a different slate call. This time I am opening it in the store and trying it out. I would expect any slate call to work with no conditioning like other materials typically require.
This left a bad taste in my mouth for Primos brand. That is unacceptable quality.
0 out of 5 stars because I have to drive back to Bass Pro again and find a better call that actually works.

Good Beginner call
This cal is pretty sweet. Ever since I purchased it my mom has been pretty mad at me because I'm always practicing in the house and this thing is LOUD lol It gets the job done however and I've called in many gobblers with it. Its a good beginner slate and its not too expensive.

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
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.
