We offer a variety of different strikers to produce unique sounds. They can be used with our variety of slate calls to effectively bring in the big birds.
Any of the striker "Sets" can also be bought as an individual striker.
Some strikers are very limited, so if you see what you like get it while you can.
This is a set of three handmade slate call strikers.
Corncob top with a shaft made from 5/16th hickory. Hickory is the most common wood used for strikers.
Corncob top with a shaft made from 5/16th Plexiglas. This striker is a must for wet weather hunting. It will work on wet slate.
Hand-lathed oak top with a shaft made from 5/16th hickory.
Each striker makes your call sound differently, so having extra strikers makes your call more versatile.
This set has 2 strikers, each made from corncob. One has a 5/16th hickory shaft, and the other has a 5/16th plexiglass shaft. The PLEXIGLASS one is a MUST for wet weather, as it WILL work on a wet slate. (other strikers usually don't)
For those hunters that like to use corncob strikers, here you go!!
This 4 striker set is all corncob tops.
The shafts are 5/16th black walnut, 5/16th hickory, 5/16th plexiglass, and 5/16 purple heart.
You now have the choice of either a flat tip or a rounded tip. Just let me know which you prefer.
A variety of hardwoods are hand lathed and placed on a 5/16th Hickory shaft with an African Mopani tip. Mopani is a very hard wood, and sounds GREAT!
These are just like the hardwood ugly stick, but with a rounded "bulb" tip now of Mopani with a Black Walnut top, Kingwood with a Spalted Oak Burl top, & Ebony with a Cherry Burl top. The tops are hand lathed with a 5/16th hickory shaft
You choose the tip, we choose the striker.
These Deluxe Ugly Sticks are multiple woods laminated together, hand lathed and placed on a 5/16th Hickory striker. The tips are rounded Mopani, Kingwood, or Ebony.
All these woods are hard woods, and produce a really GREAT sound on a slate. Just choose the tip, and we choose the striker. You can let us know if you like a higher sound, or lower sound, and we will try our best to accommodate.
Here's a new striker I'm "playing" with. The tops are a combination of all the 'extra' wood, laminated together, and hand lathed. Some of the woods used are: cherry burl, oak burl, purple heart, black walnut, & maple. These are all ONE OF A KIND.
The shafts are hickory with a rounded Mopani tip, hickory with a rounded Kingwood tip, plexiglass, and lastly purple heart.
A few even have a "lacy" effect. The lace is an epoxy that is used to fill in some of the worst holes.
Hardwood Striker with 1/4" IPE shaft
IPE (pronounced"ee-pay) is a tropical hardwood that is harder and denser than Teak wood. It has a beautiful dark color and a tight grain that gives it a very consistent coloring. It is the heaviest wood that is available for commercial usage.
This striker is hand lathed Black Walnut with a 5/16th Plexiglass shaft on one side, and a 5/16th Hickory shaft on the other side...2 for the price of one!!!
Plexiglass WILL work on a wet slate, so now you don't have to have that extra striker along!!
These strikers are made from the center of the log "between" 2 layers of wild cherry burled wood that is hand lathed.( thus the "TWEENER") They have a lot of the same characteristics as the burled wood, including some burl, wormholes, dry rot, and a phenomenal grain.
The strikers are available with a 5/16th hickory shaft, a purple heart shaft, or a plexiglass shaft.
