True Customs or are you referring to "Custom/Premium" calls?
Again, you'll get a ton of different answers. A good rule of thumb is to look at what the pros/guides use. Some would say they over pay, but when you're job/income depends on putting birds on the ground..., only the best stuff will do. That means premium calls like;
TG Super Mag, SMH's, Giant Killers, Zink SR-1/PC-1's. there are others, but these are all definitely battle tested and proven.
I'm trying a new Lynch Mob call from George Lynch (a past Michigan State goose calling champ) and had a lot of success with it so far. (my Super Mag and SMH are always on the lanyard though.)
Giant Killer (GK) calls are made right here in Michigan and I'm sure Bob could get it to you by this weekend if need be!!!
as far as duck calls.... Echo, RNT, Fowl Language, Winglock, Gaston, etc etc etc ... all good calls! as far as getting them over night.... not so sure. if you need one that quick you may wanna make a drive down to Cabelas and try out what they have in stick...they carry a number of the primium calls there.
There are a number of excellent call makers. To say who is the best,my answer would have to be I don't know. For goose calls I like Keat (Shaman), Grobb(Adrenalin Rush) and Grounds (Supermag). Have been reading good things about George Lynch(Lynch Mob) and that will be my nexted call.
Lynch Mob is in their retail outlet in Dundee. I believe $90 for the "hunter" model on up to $140 for the Salt/pepper.
Knutsons is an excellent choice as well, but like I said before; try multiple calls of the SAME Model. You'd be surprised at the difference between them. And remember as you tried all the calls... so did 200 other guys and their kids yackin' on them!! you'll know a good call (for your style) when you hear it.
