Where To Get Latex For Tube Call
« on: March 26, 2021, 07:33:36 AM »
I bought a tube call from a member I do not remember whom and it came with a bunch of Latex and one of those plastic tube calls as well. I give the plastic one to a friends son that just started hunting and he is getting pretty good with it but he is using up all my white Latex which is what I am also trying to play with so I need to get more.
I know he has tried cutting up some of his mothers kitchen gloves and some work gloves to use but they have not worked. Any clue where I could get some more? Thank you for your time.

Ron at Pioneer Game Calls is the man. I go through two reeds per year per call, though? Tell him tune it right once and quit pulling on it all the time.

Thank you, I will get that info to him.

He is a Mennonite, I think he would get excommunicated if they caught him with condoms, his brother got in trouble for having a cell phone. True story. lol Thanks for trying though Greg.

For those reading this and not knowing what a Mennonite is, think Amish with electricity.

I think it's .005, but I just asked for whatever Kenny Morgan used. Ron was his supplier.

I have successfully used balloons on my tubes. Different brands can be thicker or thinner. They are cheap and available anywhere. Drawbacks are they can be a little tough to cut to size, as they are an odd shape, but they seem easier to tune to me and keep a tune better. Might give it a try and see if they will work for you.
