Slate works best for me, but not good if wet. Use mouth calls for backup and together.

Have you ever made wood box calls. I got a large cedar tree that loggers cut down and left behind to rot and have made some pretty good sounding calls. I'm having problems with the boxes requiring a paddle, can't get the right shape on them.

Something you might be interested in trying. If you have access to a stream or river where you can find muscle shells, take the shell and dry and clean it, then take a striker from one of your other calls and strike the inside of the shell, it makes an emergency call if you lost or broke one and didn't want to quit hunting. It won't be as loud but it will work.

Never had a real favorite..use all of them..like mouth calls best..but just got an American Friction Alumaglass and it just may become my favorite friction call. It's so easy to use..sounds real good and easy to change tones with.

I personally like glass best. At least out of these three. My all time favorite surface is SlaTek made by Knight and Hale however.

I've had far more success with aluminum. But in the end, it comes down to what that turkey likes to hear.

I have a drawer full of all types and the surface of the call isn't the only thing that makes them sound good, or not. Having said that, in most cases I'd choose glass from,HERE.
