I am new to this game I am getting some calls so I can kill some ducks for my dog to retrieve. Well here is the ?
I am seeing prices all over the place. Wood calls Acrylic and Poly carb.
What are the major diff. between a poly and acrylic they look the same but the are over a 100. difference in price. I would like to go with the plastic look for bad weather reasons. But I am open to wood if it is better.:confused:
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Well... you will quickly find out this will turn in to a Chevy vs. Ford scenario. Check out the larger mags like Cabelas. The acrylics are pricey and supposed to have a richer sound. They are CNC'd machined or turned. Poly carb's are molded. You can usually get the same call in either material.

Good luck.
