flextone Echo HD Electronic Game Call
need some work
I will say right off, the first time we used this we called in 3 coyotes and killed 2 of them at the same time. So short answer is yes it works. However, the range is no where near 300 yards unless mine is broke, in fact its less than 50. It should be camo. The remote really gets slow in cold weather and scrolling through different settings takes too long. For example, scrolling from rabbits to coyote takes to much time. It is well built and batteries last all day. I do recommend getting some type of decoy with it. I have called up numerous coyotes but none of them are coming within range to shoot. Yes, I'm wearing camo! I also put a short youtube video out (flextone echo review) Over all it does what I want it too.

Good call for the money
First off... saying that the remote works 300 yards away is false advertisement. It works at 75 yards tops if you are above it... Maybe in a deer stand. If you are at ground level with the call it wont work as well and anything in-between the remote and the call will interfere. That being said. For the money it is an excellent call. I have killed many a coyote using this call! The Volume is great. the verity of different calls are excellent. The calls sound very good and real. I hunt in MS and the Coyotes, foxes, and bobcats come running!
I've only hunted coyotes in MS so for here it's better to be out late at nigh than at dusk. I have the most success closer to 12am. Some sort of decoy is recommended. You will have a bunch of nights when the predators don't respond to the call. It usually depends more on the conditions of the night wind speed, temp. ect.. than the calling so don't get discouraged! You have good days and bad days but you have to keep trying! Make sure your clothes are unscented and Try not to be down wind of your call. When you see those eyes running at you, you will be hooked! Hunting Predators is challenging but very fun!

I use rechargeable batteries in the main unit, but I need to replace the remote battery. I went to Batteries Plus to get a new battery, but they couldn't find one that would work. I tried to contact the dealer for a new battery or at least the size I need, but have had no reply. Don't get me wrong, this game call is great, I really like that you can activate it out to 300 yds. If you use it as much as I did you probably need to look into finding a replacement battery for the remote. The slim line of the remote I like because it fits into the main unit. The sounds are awesome.

the pros: the concept of this call and design are great. the remote is stored and charged in the caller itself and both have rechargable batteries. the call has a ton of sounds to chose from. the call also has 2 speakers and the ability to play one or both at the same time. the call also has 2 legs to keep the call off the ground. the price was great
the cons: the remote is suppose to work out to 300 ft and some state 300 yrds. i could only get 75 yds. alot of the sounds arent so good at high volume. the remote is not user friendly. at 75 yds i could turn the call on but had to push the button many times to shut off. even with 2 speakers the call isnt very loud. if the come out with a echo 2 caller and change the problems it would be the best caller on the market, but for now i would spend 50 dollars more and get the foxpro wildfire 2
