Self destructing diaphragm calls...has it happened to you?
« on: August 27, 2020, 07:55:56 PM »
On July 9, 2020, I purchased 3 sets of 3 diaphragm calls from RMHC. Tonight I took them out of their packages to put them in my call case, preparing for next weeks opener. Much to my surprise and disappointment, of the 9 calls, 6 already had torn latex in them, rendering them useless! I've contacted the mfgr. but have not heard back yet.
Have any of you had a similar experience?  If I may ask, who could any of you recommend that manufacture diaphragm calls that have "some" durability? I'd ask you for advice on how to prolong the life of diaphragm calls, but I never got to use them even once! Thanks in advance!!

Get in touch with RMHC and they should take care of it. I've never had any issues with their calls so something weird must have happened. Which calls were they?

RMHC are what I use. I have some a couple years old I have not opened yet and seem fine. I would guess that heat and or sunlight caused the failure. I am positive that RMHC will correct the issues.

this is strange. Rockie makes some of the best calls in the world. I have used them for years with no problem.
