Default Rattle with fake horns?

I've never bought a set of fake ones, either used real or the bag. However yesterday I hunted back home in the rain and had the bag with me and it was damp and got wet and sounded terrible. I forgot to grab a set of horns from home and it would be cheaper to buy some then run back, so I was wondering is there a good fake set that still sounds good?

Well I don't know how well hitting two horns together will do. I've never tried hitting a couple of cow horns or sheep horns together. Now fake antlers do work pretty well as long as they aren't the super cheap plastic looking ones. The ones with texture sound pretty real. Just be sure and get antlers though, not horns. Sorry for the sarcasm, I just don't get why everyone calls them horns!

I bought some Primos Fightin Horns...sound good, I broke 3 tines off a real set I used to use and tend to hit my hands pretty easy. Hopefully these hold up.

Nothing sounds more real than the real thing!
