    If your talking about the "new" old style, The one I have isnt quite loud enough for me. Its made out of red wood burl so an acrylic old style will be a touch louder. Good sounding call just not enough reach for me.

    I've got one from about 1987. It was the only style they made then I think. I don't know if that's the model y'all are talking about. It's very loud with a fantastic top end and feed call. I can't get much out of the bottom end of it. I had Butch try to get a little more bottom end on it for me about 5 years ago. It's dang near a contest style call.

    not much air at all I think you would be happy with it. It is more of a finesse call in my option.great for working call shy ducks in the timber.

    I had one of the NOS. Sounded good, will do the cajun squeal with ease, but like pimp said, its a finesse call. I don't have a problem with wood, and have had a few in the past, but the acrylics always sound more crisp to me.

    I'm an acrylic guy myself. Nothing against a wood call but I just don't like the way they tend to swell when wet and overtime I've had to have the hole in my insert drilled back out. The wood wants to expand. To me a wood call tuned right has a true duck sound like no other. Acrylic seems to be little louder and will have the same sound if its wet or dry it doesn't change.

    I've got an old original Butch made for me as a Christmas present one year. Sounds great but not loud like today's calls. I learned the hard way to pull the insert out right after the hunt.....wood will swell...!!

    A Echo DRT or a Timber is your best bet if you want a finesse call .

    i had an acryllic old style for a little while. didnt fit me very well....tended to overblow it a lot. its a real easy call to blow, doesnt take much air at all. other than me overblowing it....it sounded really good.
