    Parker,

    Not sure if this is the right place to put this so please delete if it isn't. Where would you suggest i get the rubber o-rings that are on my call. I was changing tonesin my stand and when i pulled it apart one of them fell off. From 18 feet i have no clue where it went. Still works great just want to get a better seal.

    Thanks for a great call. I killed my best bow buck this year and grunted him in!!

    No problem man. Those rings are not going to last forever. Just no way around that. :cheers:

    I'd suggest going to a LOCAL hardware store and asking to get into the faucet o-rings. You'll want something in the 1/2" inside diameter area.

    If you go to Lowes or Home Depot, they only come in boxes of 10.

    I've got o-rings that are 5 different sizes and two different material types that I size to each call for the best fit. There is really no way of knowing what size was on your call on that top notch without getting a chance to fit them.

    Any of this kind of stuff I can always fix folks up at the Chillicothe or Columbia Deer Classics too. :cheers:

    Might be a dumb question, but how do you change the tones. And exactly what reason would you want to

    Dane-ger, there's a smalle o-ring on the reed. By sliding the o-ring to the front or rear of the reed you change the tone.

    sliding it all the way down past the last notch makes the LOW grunt that the vectors are famous for!

    The reed can also be slid in and out (BARELY and VERY CAREFULLY) if you are feeling REALLY froggy. This movement can be messed up pretty easily, but it is another way of tuning the call. In general, the 45 degree cuts on the reed should be out JUST a smidge past the toneboard.

    I move mine quite often. After I pull it apart and make my adjustment I always lick the O-Rings prior to putting it back together. Makes it slide together better and keeps the O-Ring from cracking so soon.

    If you have a Westlakes (Ace Hardware) near you they sell the washers one at a time.
