Diaphragm Reed Pouch

A diaphragm reed pouch is an essential tool for those who prefer to use mouth calls for turkeys. These pouches have a marine grade netting back so your reeds can dry quickly. They also feature a convenient, adjustable neck lanyard.

The reed on a mouth call controls its tone. The tighter the reed is stretched, the higher the pitch. Read on Box Turkey Call for more information.

There are several diaphragm reed pouch styles available on the market. Some offer protection but do not provide much ventilation. Others allow ventilation but are not as easy to access. These types of pouches are typically used in modern papermaking machines that operate at high speeds. This high speed requires special systems to stabilize the web between dryer cylinders and reduce humidity. These air stabilizing systems are usually placed in between the dryer cylinders and are sometimes called pocket ventilators. These ventilators must be cleaned properly to avoid agglomeration and other problems with the web.

As with choosing a shirt you must choose the right sized frame. If it is too large you will have difficulty placing the reed in your mouth and won’t be able to seal the tape portion of the reed with the roof of your mouth. On the other hand if the frame is too small you won’t be able to get a good sound from your call.

When choosing a reed try out different frames to see which one is the best fit for you. Also pay attention to how the reed feels in your roof of your mouth. If it is uncomfortable you won’t be able to make good turkey calls.

The ventilation in the pocket of the reed pouch allows the reed to dry when it is not being used. This will extend the life of your reed and prevent it from molding between uses.

Another benefit of the vented pocket is that it allows the reed to be easily removed when not in use. This will make it easier to blow and make adjustments to your call while on the go. It will also eliminate the need to remove and reattach the reed each time you need to make changes to your calling. This will save you both time and money. This pouch comes with two dividers and is able to hold up to three diaphragm calls. It also has a clip and paracord to attach to your neck or backpack so you can easily access it when you need it.

Adjustable Neck Laynard

The neck laynard of this diaphragm reed pouch is adjustable, so you can comfortably wear it while you’re calling. It’s also made of soft, comfortable material that’s durable in the field. You can also use the lanyard to carry other items, such as ID cards or access keys. It’s available in a variety of colors and sizes, so you can choose the one that best meets your needs.

If you’re new to turkey mouth calls, you should start with a basic call that is easy to master. A straight double or a split triple is a good choice for beginners, as they have a simple but noticeable cut. However, it’s important to note that these calls take time to learn to master, and they require a lot of patience.

Another popular option for beginner turkey callers is a diaphragm. This type of call uses a thin sheet of latex stretched tight and held in place by a U-shaped frame. The frame is covered with tape, which makes it look like duct tape. This tape prevents air from blowing around the reed and allows it to sound more realistic.

Diaphragm calls are much easier to maintain than box or slate turkey calls, but they also require a lot of practice and care. They’re also easier to keep dry than other types of turkey calls, which can be difficult during wet spring conditions. Aside from their ease of maintenance, they’re ideal for hunters who want to stay hands-free while calling.

This Reed Quiver pocket pouch is designed to hold up to 12 diaphragm reeds and features an adjustable neck lanyard for quick access. It’s made in the USA from waterproof camo fabric and has a marine grade mesh back so your reeds can dry out. Its back flap opens by squeezing the top corners and has a strong clip that attaches to your hat, pocket, or bino harness.

Unlike other styles of diaphragm reed holders, this one has dividers to help you organize your calls. It can also be used as a backpack call bag and includes a strap with clip for attaching it to your belt or backpack. It is ideal for elk and turkey mouth calls and can be used for other animals as well.

Durable Fabric

Besides being comfortable to wear, the fabric of the diaphragm turkey call pouch is durable and waterproof. This is important for hunters who want to avoid having their calls dry out during a hunt. Using a wet turkey call will not only affect the sound quality, but it will also cause the latex to deform, which can significantly shorten its lifespan.

There are many different styles of turkey call pouches on the market, each offering unique features. However, the best ones are those that offer plenty of ventilation and easy access to reeds. Some are even able to attach to your backpack for hands-free calling during long hunts. These types of pouches are designed to hold a variety of sizes and shapes of reeds, so you can choose the one that is right for your needs.

A good diaphragm turkey call will produce authentic and natural-sounding turkey calls that will attract the attention of wild birds. These calls require practice to master, but the sounds they can create are well worth the effort. They are also much more realistic than box or slate turkey calls, and can be used in a hands-free manner. Some models even come with a tertiary sounding board, which enhances the call’s performance.

The most common diaphragm game call holders are plastic hard cases, which offer the most protection but are less convenient to carry. Other options include elastic bands that encircle the case, and Velcro straps that allow you to secure the holder to your backpack. Lastly, there is the VIAM Outdoors Bighorn Reed Stash, which offers the most convenient way to store your reeds, but it can only hold up to five reeds at a time.

In addition to a pocket for holding the diaphragm game call, the pouch also includes a sponge that can be soaked with alcohol free mouthwash. This serves a threefold purpose: it prevents the reed from drying out, it acts as a lubricant to facilitate the user’s calls, and it kills any bacteria or pathogens that may be present on the reed.

Easy to Clean

The simple equipment used in turkey hunting requires regular care and maintenance to keep them performing at their best. That’s especially true with the diaphragm call you’ll need to make those sweet, plain yelps and high-pitched kee-kees that bring gobblers into range. Unlike mouth calls that can be slid inside your lips, diaphragms consist of latex reeds of various thicknesses stretched over a frame. When these reeds come into contact with each other, they can degrade and shorten the life of your call.

The best way to prevent this is to store your reeds properly. Instead of leaving them in a hard plastic case with little ventilation, use a small paper towel to wipe down your calls after each use. Then, to separate the reeds, run a flat-tipped toothpick between the top reed and the one underneath. Let the call sit and air dry for several hours, but be sure it is out of direct sunlight. Then remove the toothpick, carefully to avoid tearing the latex.

Keeping your mouth calls in a cooler, dark environment also helps maintain their pliability and optimum sound. You can even place a few of your favorite calls in the refrigerator to keep them fresher than ever.

Mouth calls are easy to assemble and more reliable than diaphragms, but you must treat them with the proper care to extend their life and performance. After each use, rinse them in mouthwash or tap water and dry them carefully with a paper towel. You can speed up the drying process by inserting a flat-tipped toothpick between each reed and the call. Then, simply place them in a plastic reed pouch, such as the VIAM Outdoors Bighorn, to keep them secure and out of the sun.

The pouch has two Velcro straps that attach to your backpack for quick access. It’s also compact and lightweight enough to fit in your pocket. It’s the easiest way to carry your reeds without taking up too much room in your turkey vest. It also keeps your reeds from getting bent or damaged in your backpack or in the bottom of your turkey bag.
