Brenda Valentine and SWEET Talk in season this season

In a press release issued by Commando Hunting Products regarding Brenda Valentine’s designed and endorsed friction call, the SWEET Talk, Brenda said, “Maintaining my integrity in the outdoor industry is very important to me and I have always been careful about allowing my name to be used as an endorsement for any product. I wanted a call that was so versatile it would eliminate the need for carrying multiple calls. The combo slate and glass gives me that versatility.  This is the first signature series call I ever been confident in enough to add my name to. Commando Hunting Products has earned my respect and a place in my turkey vest!”

She endorsed it. Brenda Valentine's own call.

Brenda and the crew from Commando pulled out several SWEET Talk calls at a Women’s Seminar (which also had several children and men as guests!) during the 2012 National Wild Turkey Federation’s Convention and Sport show, held in Nashville, Tenn. Sponsored by Women’s Outdoor News, this seminar by Brenda featured turkey hunting tips — from what to wear to what to carry and how to call. She also, in typical Valentine fashion, moved the seminar along at a fast and funny pace.

According to Commando,

The Two-Sided Sweet Talk Friction Call is produced from No.1 select hard maple. The density and tight grain of the hard maple allows Sweet Talk to emit a high-pitched raspy sound with very little effort. Flip the Sweet Talk over and the bottom sound board doubles as an additional striking surface that emits a deeper tone that is perfect for soft calling. The one-piece purple heart flare tip striker produces a break over yelp with ease and purrs, putts and clucks that are worthy of any champion caller! The Sweet Talk friction call was designed in conjunction with Brenda Valentine and is manufactured in the U.S.A. by Commando Hunting Products on a state-of-the art three dimensional CNC machining center. The repeatability of the manufacturing process enables each and every Sweet Talk friction call to produce championship sound quality.

It weighs .08 pounds and retails for $40. Visit Commando Hunting Products online.

    Nancy Jo, Thank you so much for such kind words. It is an honor to have you using my turkey call especially since you put so much time and energy toward inspiring women to hunt and enjoy the outdoors. Keep on doing what you are doing!

    THIS is why Brenda is one of my MOST favorite outdoor celerities BY FAR. She is so down to Earth and genuine…and unique in my book. I am proud to be sharing in the Elite ProStaff with her for Commando Calls. And by the way, Richard and I also use the Sweet Talk. Excellent call, perfect size, outstanding sound.
