I agree with StrutStop that little Slick Stick does wounders i'll take course sandpaper first then reduce down to a finer grit paper then after that i'll just dress it up in the field with my Slick Stick

r33h i'll usually only sand the top 1/3 of my calls also but heres a good factor how ever you sand your call the striker you use will create different sounds i'll use a walnut striker then turn to a carbon striker for a more louder effect so keep that in mind i carry about 6 strikers with me if one dont work i'll jump to a different one and see what happens also i found that a 1 piece striker will be more crisp then a 2 piece production striker which comes with most calls

I am a new member so take that into consideration with my response. I make calls with 2 types of surfaces, slick and bead blasted. The bead blasted requires no conditioning for an extensive period of time. When I make calls with a slick surface I condition only a small area towards the about 1/2" from the edge and the area is only about 1 inch. I condition it in one direction and run the striker diagonally against the grain.
