The outside of the octagon bowl also uses a compounded bevel towards the backside of the call for an easier grip. Many like the combination of the size, octagon shape and the beveled sides making this design one of our most popular calls, because it is just so easy to balance and grasp in the hand, even with gloves.

This slate call kit also features 3" inner glass plate to help soften and muffle sharp unnatural chalkboard squealing from the slate. Very few friction calls use actual inserts inside the call. The slate surface measures 3-1/2”.
When completed your call will be the highest quality slate calls on the market.
The kit includes a plastic syringe to run a fine bead of clear silicone sealer to hold the glass in place and then around the slate seat. The recommended sealer is "GOOP" brand, clear adhesive (not included in the kit). The only difficult task in assembling this call is to just apply enough adhesive on the edge so that it doesn't ooze out the side and onto the striker surface. This is why we have included the syringe.
The slate will come dry fitted to protect it in shipping. Sometimes it will be tight and may need additional sanding before final glue in. If the slate does not easily fall out use a small dowel rod to easily push while rotating through the holes on the backside to remove it without breaking.
The wood bowl will need a light fine sanding before the finish, you can engrave, wood burn or complete your own personalization. You can also select our engraving option to have a name or initials added to the top, or select logo engraving to make these projects for youth groups, schools or other classes. Like the FFA classes have done with our box call kits, or use your logo to make your own turkey calls.
Simply, finish the wood, assemble the insert and slate top, let the sealer dry overnight, tune the call surface with the included sanding pad and you are ready to talk turkey.
