    Winglock #968 all acrylic j-frame or any of the poly double reeds,,,, these calls use a thinner top reed , control like a dbl ---high ball like a single,, rasp thru out top to bottom, good solid hunting call

    Brass band.

    Original style Troublemaker has also worked well for me. Along with Schultz(sp?) triple reed.

    Plenty of good single reeds but that’s not what you’re asking about

    For the money, hard to beat the sound of the Jase Robertson Pro Series. Has more back pressure then the old calls, and has a great sound. I love a single reed, but for real duck sounds, feel a Double reed is hard to beat. It's just the comp sound, naisally sound guys make now is what "people" want to hear, even though there isn't a duck that makes that noise. Go down to the park or hospital pond and take a lunch , some bread crumbs, and eat and feed the ducks . Listen to the sounds they make!

    The most "popular" double reed is by far, no close second, ain't worth arguing about, the Haydell's DR-85. Now, with that said, go get a single reed and practice! ;)

    The question was what is most popular double for advanced callers....so I would say a dr85 is not even top 5 once you get past basics like which end to blow in.

    Again, that depends on how one defines "advanced callers". And if the OP is speaking to those who are most successful at actually influencing ducks with a call, rather than just guys who've run a lot of calls, GulfCoast is still likely right.
