Default Double Reed Calls: How hard are they????

I'm thinking about getting a new call. Not a very good caller but am learning. What are the pros and cons of a double reed call? I heard they are harder to work. I was looking at the red leg call by haydel's I think.

Any opinions would help. Thanks.

Double reed calls are easier to learn and much more forgiving than a single reed call.

OHHHHH, so it's the other way around. So why would anyone buy a single reed call???? Does it sound better?

the single reed calls deliver a crisper quality of sound and you can get a little more creative with them.

So I've been told!!!!!

Get your Red Leg you will be happy with it. Not a better call at any price.

Doubles are duckier, in my opinion, sound better. Easier to use, better for subtle calling.I use a Winglock double reed wood/poly and wouldn't trade it for any other call, it's that good!!

Sweet guys, thanks for the info. One more question for you though. The red leg comes in two models, the RL-99 and the VR-00 which has a tuning hole so you can sound like more than one duck. Is this VR-00 decent???? I'm a firm believer in the theory that the fancier you try and get the more things that can go wrong. So is this 2 tone model for real or is it a bad idea. It sounds like it might work and it would be better to sound like 2 different ducks were calling.

Guess I'll get it and see. If it sucks I'll sell it to my friend[8D]

I really haven't ever had any trouble with double reed calls. Infact I prefer them. In my opinion they are more versitile.
