Introduction: Without a duck call the chances of success on a hunt are slim to none; and if you don’t have a lanyard to hold your call you’re gonna find yourself in a jam. That’s where Goose Noose Lanyards comes into play. These hand braided lanyards are made in Illinois by Charles Powell and are made for the serious waterfowler. While Goose Noose makes countless styles we will be focusing on the 4 drop model.

Comes with a Goose Noose Lanyards Band

First Impressions: We received this olive and tan lanyard from Goose Noose Lanyards and we were very impressed with the craftsmanship. This was a 4 drop model where the drops were staggered to keep the calls from banging into one another. Each drop had a very easily adjustable loop to secure the insert or barrel of a call. Each tag end had been burnt to prevent future fraying. The burnt end had also been pressed back to help keep a low profile and keep them from snagging on anything. The braiding was flawless and very uniform. The lanyard looked great, but now it was time to load it up with calls and see how it would perform.

Field Test: We got the lanyard full of calls to see how it would manage. Each call was tightly secured by 2 drops. One around the insert, and the other around the barrel. They fit snuggly enough that you would not have to think twice about loosing a call while stomping around in the swamp. Not only does the lanyard hold the calls securely, it is also very comfortable around your neck. A lot of lanyards I have tried in the past have been uncomfortable to wear for a full day, but the way this one is constructed it can lay flat on your neck without causing you any problems.

One of the big benefits of this lanyard over others is the fact that the drops are staggered. This helps prevent your calls from banging into one another; therefore reducing noise and protecting your calls. The Goose Noose Lanyard is made of quality material and is made to last. When you hold this lanyard in your hand you can feel its durability. There is no doubt that this is a piece of equipment that can be past down form generation to generation.

Each tag end is burned to prevent fraying. Once it’s burned Goose Noose goes the extra mile and presses it back to keep it out of the way.
