VP,try the WoodsWise Mystic Stick.I have one of these and absolutely love it.You can make ultra loud cutts with it as well as super soft purrs.It works when wet and also on oily surfaces,just not as well on the oily surfaces.You seldom need to condition the striker also.

Strikers can come in different woods. Every striker will have a tone difference on anyone surface. There are a number of strikers that can be used in wet conditions, and the carbon is on of my favorites as Volume can be achieved along with the wet capability. A couple of years ago I started to turn my own strikers on a lathe. After playing with different woods and profiles of a striker, I came to a profile that worked well and had the shape that one could attach a lanyard to it without any bad preformance to the striker while one used it. With this idea the turkey hunter has not got the problem with the loss of a favorite striker. Here is an old photo of the strikers I now produce. The only problem with this winter is the time of getting them done. Thankyou too the ones that have gave my strikers a plug, and the fella's on the board that has ordered in the passed.(JoeA yours is being done my friend and thanks for being patient.)

Ok, so I guess Adrians "Out House Strikers" are pretty sweet. The picture looks pretty sharp to- Does anyone have any paticular wood they prefer over another for a Glass call and why they prefer it.
Adrian, how does one acquire one of them "Out House Strikers" and which one do you prefer for Glass?

VP, Just email me if you would like , I can give you prices and the woods I use

Walnut works fine on glass, I built some walnut and cherry for a fello that Comp calls and he liked it.
Purple heart works well on all surfaces. Chestnut also sounds good aswell.
Hope that helps ya...BT
