I only use  one  Boxcall...and I've had a lot of success with it. It's has a high pichted sound no rasp to speak of. I've had more gobblers answer this call than all the others I've used combined. Couple years ago two hens walked up to my calling. One hen kept walking the second smaller hen stopped  and yelped a few times it sounded exactly like the Boxcall. I waited till she walked off and yelped a few times the little hen came right back and answered I messed with the little hen for about 45 min letting her walk off an call her back. Her  yelping  and cutting sounded just like the boxcall. So I guess the reason it works as well as it does ,it sounds like a young hen.
Each gobbler is different an not all will answer any one call so it's good to have an be proficient with more than one call. The first time I hunted Texas I was surprised when I never got a single response from the old Boxcall the whole hunt. The Rios really liked the slate and ceramic but not the Boxcall. Last year In Texas I used a trumpet an had a hen come straight from the roost an got so close it almost cost me a shot at a gobbler, she got to about 5 yards an non stop yelping looking for the hen she heard. I don't know what she thought the trumpet was friend or foe but she was sure interested. You just never know from one turkey till the next or even one day till the next which call will strike something in the individual bird.
Do not be offended because He has invested way more time and effort into something he is passionate about and wants to master, than you have.
