Unique to the Wapiti line of reeds are the relief cut-outs which allow all sides of the tape to position themselves comfortably in the roof of the mouth. They require very little air and tongue pressure to operate, reducing our natural gag tendencies. In conjunction with the natural soft latex it allows you to produce the most consistent air flow over the latex for sweet sounding tones.
The Ridge Runner is a single light latex reed designed for young and immature bull sounds as well as cow and calf talk. It’s a great reed for in close confrontations which is why we made it olive green, to blend into your surroundings. This reed requires very little air and tongue pressure; therefore, it is perfect when the bull is close. Low air and tongue pressure means effortless sounds. When you get in a pressure situation with a big bull elk coming in fast you can very easily make the proper sounds when needed and on demand.
