Thread: Buttolo calls breaking

    Buttolo calls breaking

    After having the same Buttolo for over 15 years 2 years back it packed up, the last 2 have not even lasted a season - I will now only use the Nordic as it's getting expensive....but actually prefer the buttolo esp for the 'screech' distress/doe call.

    You can't open them up to really see what's gone wrong/fix them of course.

    Anybody else noticed the quality waning of late or have I just been unlucky?

    Butler Creek must have taken them over! No cant be true their flip ups don't make it through a season. It's a sad state of today's markets that so many products have to go down the cheaper component route but when you have margins to chase what do you do.

    I tend to lose Butler Creek flip ups but the Buttolo has lasted eight years. Now watch me lose that as well.
