    the striker is the piece that you hold in your hand like a pencil .

    I whittled one out of black locust about a dozen years ago, and was blessed by the turkey gods. I sure as heck didn't (and still don't) know what I was doing, but it is SWEET.

    I use it with just about everything, but my favorite is a piece of hard shale. Turkey calls that come straight from the woods are the coolest.:big_smile:

    my best striker I have from hs strut is the rosewood. I get the most responses from it. I've been tempted to order some of the fancier ones you see in the catalogs but am hesitant if theyre worth the $$
