Default The Freak by Primos or Lynch Foolproof

I'm new to Turkey hunting and want to start getting some calls. I've heard a lot about the Freak by Primos for a slate call and the Foolproof by Lynch for a box call. Which would you guys recommend? I'm not getting both yet, but I'm sure I will eventually. I want to get one of them before my trip to Michigan May 1. Thanks for your time.

Sorry for misspelling Primos.

I have the freak crystal and the fool proof...Nether are that great. I dont like the sound they give out. I did call in a turkey with freak. one time
Honestly. I would spend a little extra and buy a Quaker Boy Eradicator (Slate) And a Primos Cuttin Striker. It has superb sound. and called in many birds with it last year. Just my opininon

I think I fixed it. This site is nice, did not know you could go back and edit your own post.

If I were to make the choice between the 2, I'd choose the Freak. Not necessarily because of the sound, but because of the way it is used. Also, a slate type call is easier to change the tone of the call by simply changing the striker you use. Basic strikers are fairly inexpensive and easy to find and can really make a difference in the sound of the call. Remember to sand a slate type call often and only sand it in one direction and sand your striker tips as well (not to change the shape, but to keep it clean).

I use the Freak and i also have a lynch raspy hen box call. i like them both. I bought the freak call for 2 reasons: i like the sound and with a couple strikers the sound can be changed, and second, i'm no good with a mouth call so i can strap the freak to my leg and call with 1 hand.helps me limit my motion.Just remember, calling isn't the most important thing in turkey hunting so you can get away with less than perfect calling and still get a bird. good luck

I like the Lynch, but if it were me, I'd get the World Champion over the Fool Proof. The Freak is a good call, though, too.

Crystal Freak. I have a plastic, green striker, that I have no idea where I even got it from that sounds awesome with the Crystal Freak,but it sounds pretty good with the woodenstriker too.
