If money is'nt a problem then youshould go with WT's MA-15, or CS-24

Fox-pro; You can down load sounds onto it and it comes with all kinds of bells and whistles. They have some good prey distress sounds and a few good coyote vocals. Customer service is good but exspect to maybe have to send youre f-p in a couple of times to get the kinks out. Best time to buy one is dureing summer months so you can make sure its working properly before hunting season and get used to the remote..


Wt; real-life sounds and the best out there at the moument. Customer service is getting better, but I have never had any issues with WT. Just show a little respect and don't ask for F-P features (bells and whistles)
The remote is simple to use and I have not had any issues with my WT..(2030)

On another forum there are guys that own both the MA-15, or CS-24. They say the wt is a little more louder than the CS-24 and the sounds more clearer at full volume. Battery life seems to be the same for both, should get in a good day of calling with either..

You can get sounds that you recorded youreself put onto a WT chip but not another companies sounds.
I have used my WT for about 3 seasons and have found no reason to add any other sounds to it, just need to learn how to use them properly...

Good luck and you should be happy with either one........

i haven't heard the cs-24 but I have heard there great. I am in the process of acquiring a WT might atom from a friend of mine. I really like my foxpro fx-3 also. Bad parts to all e-callers. I haven't heard of a firestorm. There is a thread on here about the FP and WT. Pretty mixed reviews on both calls. Good luck.

thanks, yeah i have been thinking more about the the warranty ,sound clarity and distance and i really like the fact that WT has a 15 day money back guarantee. tim,dusty good info thanks. i have been waiting to be able to get a great caller for along time money is a big issue especially in todays economy thats why i'm trying to get all the info about them. i have studied thier web sites and the only way to get the real info about them is to ask you guys the real users , hunters the one's that dont have anything to gain except the satifaction of being able to help another hunter.oh , i cant lie i like all the bells and whistles but i really need long lasting durability,long distant sound and remote(one that really works) , and clarity. i bought one caller a extreme dim.and WOW.... ...WHAT A PIECE.the sound distance and clarity is not good unless your calling in a place where they have'nt heard a call or a real distress cry before (not to be a a_ _ but what a waste of money for me).would anyone out there like to buy one? NR.

how about the distance ? how far can you set the caller and still be able to use the remote ? oh, and how far can you set the caller out before you cant hear it any more ?. right now i'm thinking more about the '' WT's MA-15 or the MA-21''. you know unless i hear something else that will change my mind again.

Chevy do a google search on the two, WT and FP see what you come up with typing in remote control issues etc.


I have not had any issues with range, the issue i have is how far away do I want to get because i have to go get it and it increases my chances of being busted on a stand location with all the extra exposure etc getting it all situated before starting to call.

I just bought the CS-24 with the 15 watt speaker. I used it this past Friday and Saturday, which was very cold. At the coldest Friday morning it was probably -30 with the wind chill and the call worked pretty well. The remote was slow and stuck a bit when trying to switch sounds but worked flawlessly after the first stand. I'm impressed with it so far.

nick, about how far were you from the caller itself ? Randy, i took your advice and did a search but did'nt really come up with anything. I did see that both the CS-24 & MA-15 both use 10AA bateries in the callers themselfs so both of them should put out the same amount of power to the speaker(s). also i read in another forum that one guy said that "there are alot of FP's for sale(alot of them by thier owners) everywhere compared to the WT's". i've been seeing that to.how about you guy ? are you seeing it to ?.

I own an FX-3 and wouldn't sell it. It comes in handy quite a bit. I just finished the deal on the WT from my buddy but I can't give a good review since I've only used it abou 6 times. I know that Randy uses the WT and has great success with it. He knows what he's talking about. I also know that Coyothunter uses the CS-24 and he also knows what he's talking about. I don't think you can go wrong either way. You've got good advice from 2 good hands. Good luck. 8)

[quote i read in another forum that one guy said that "there are alot of FP's for sale(alot of them by thier owners) everywhere compared to the WT's". i've been seeing that to.how about you guy ? are you seeing it to ?.][/quote]

Yes I have seen the same on a few forums..
Reason being is that F-P has flooded the market with so many different types of E-callers and is always upgradeing or makeing changes and there customers want more bells and whistles. F-P just wants everyone to be happy as long as the money keeps comeing in

There is a small percentage of callers that are not happy with F-p remotes or the callers them selves and have switched over to the WT. Some also got up-set with haveing to send in there F-p for updates or repair every few month's and sometime less..
Some of the guys I know that switched over to the WT have also kept one or two of the F-P they have but say they don't get used due to better response with the WT and a much simpuler remote operation...

As far as someone buying a E-caller I don't make the choice for them, its not my dime. But I do help out those that have made the switch over to a WT and try to get them headed in the right direction. I have a handfull of guys that send me pic.'s or updates on how there calling is going and the good exsperiances they are haveing with there WT... :mrgreen:

this time of year I would go with vocalizations. Foxpro has a ton of coyote sounds and I know the guy who records some of them from a pet coyote he has, also a buch recorded in the field on stand with coyotes.
