I’m wanting to get a new custom striker for my pot calls. I’m still pretty new to turkey hunting so I have no idea what wood to get. Anyone have a favorite striker wood, or know the difference in sound between woods?
Thanks

I also really like a carbon striker. They have a different sound. I probably hava a half a dozen different strikers that I really like, usually matched with a different slate, glass or other pot call.

Yeah, all my pot calls are customs. I have slates, ceramic, aluminum, copper and glass. Each call has several strikers matched to it. Some strikers work well on several different surfaces. Others not so much. A custom maker knows his woods and surfaces and usually has a well matched striker or two with his call. Buying a random striker to go with a call is an unknown sometimes.

Diamondwood is a good choice. Works well on slate and glass. No so much on metal surfaces. It can get screechy. Diamondwood is also limited in supply. Not much of it left out there. The plant that made it, burned down several years back. They never rebuilt. The formula is protected by patent, so nobodies reproducing it. There is another product thats making its way into the market. Called Dymalux. It's pretty close. I picked up a supply here awhile back, and been running it on multiple surfaces. Been happy with it so far. I know alot of guys are hot for Snakewood. But it's hard to get too, and not cheap either. Personally, I think guys put too much efficents on the sound, when it's the vocabulary you should be worried about creating. If your on facebook, ck out my call page, Scott's Custom Turkey Calls. Be glad to help ya if your wanting something.
