This is a solid call. It is quite reactive and can respond quickly with various notes. Increased versatility with deeper raspier notes on the low end would enhance the rating. Overall I am pleased with the call.
I can produce a wider variety of sounds with this call than any other short reed I have tried. The volume and pitch range is incredible, high and loud to low and raspy. My favorite part of the call is how the barrel starts with a wider, flatter shape where you put it to your mouth; it really helps out. Having not tried it in person and just ordering blind, among the sea of options, I have to agree with a lot of the reviews already on here - this thing plain rocks!
Beautiful call, easy to use, and sounds great!
I own or have owned most of the major call brands. I have a problem, I know. I recently purchased the Deception call while they were on sale, had heard some good things and figured at the sale price, it was worth a try. These are NICE calls. Fit and Finish - exceptional. I was sold, and quickly ordered the Deceiver. Both have a nice goosey tone, the deception is louder and a bit more aggressive sounding. There’s more built in back pressure on the deceiver making it effortless to run while still maintaining great tone. Would be cool if they offered it with the broke in guts, but it’s not giving up much with the standard gut system. Excellent calls, great service.
This call hands down is money...
