Sure-Shot Game Calls, manufacturer of the world champion Yentzen duck call, introduces the Yentzen One, the newest product in their double-reed game call product line.
The Original Yentzen revolutionized the duck call industry when Sure-Shot introduced the very first double-reed system. It quickly earned world-wide recognition not only for the quality of its control, but also for being the best at mimicking the true sounds of waterfowl. The new Yentzen One features an upgraded Sure-Quack reed system which better controls the vibration within the call. This, combined with the upgrade to the Sure-Quack trough system provides better tonal qualities. Other upgrades include the Sure-Quack peg design which allows the reed to pivot for better control. Sure-Shot’s patent-pending Screw-Lock System protects the integrity of the call, the need for O-Rings, and also prevents all air loss. Lastly, the proprietary CNC machined composite body coupled with the Screw-Lock System, gives the call a far louder sound than any other double reed on the market. MSRP on the black Yentzen ONE will be $150.00. The clear Yentzen ONE will be $200 and both will be introduced to the general public in January 2014.
The 60+ year old company was founded by James “Cowboy” Fernandez and George Yentzen in Nederland, Texas in the early 1940s. After many prototypes, their first product, the 1950 patented Yentzen, became the very first double-reed duck call introduced to the marketplace. In 1959, Cowboy Fernandez entered several duck calling competitions and both he and the Yentzen Caller became world class champions. Today, Sure-Shot offers over two dozen game calls for waterfowl, predator, deer, and turkey.
The elderly Cowboy Fernandez stepped back from production of the Sure-Shot product line a few years ago and sold the business to long-time friend, Charlie Holder in 2011. Today, the Sure-Shot name is as strong as it ever was, and is still proudly manufactured in the U.S. “The history behind the Yentzen was just as important to me as the product line,” said Charlie Holder, president of Sure-Shot Game Calls. “What George Yentzen and Cowboy Fernandez put into this company over the past 60+ years was their whole heart and soul to develop and perfect their product line. We feel like it’s not just a company, but a legacy and a piece of hunting history that’s been shared for generations. We hope to provide even more memories in the generations to come.”
