Well, I have been totally amazed at
the size of the units and how they are getting
smaller and smaller, this unit is totally amazing,
and with the SP55 speaker it
Enter smaller is better! Well here is a very cool
unit, it is small, and takes 100 sounds of your
choice, you can load another 100 if you really want
to, making it a 200 sounder! The unit opens up to
allow you to connect a USB cable to add more sounds,
if you have sounds at home, you can load them to
has a stereo two speaker connector if you want more
volume, but comes standard with a built in speaker.
It has a charger jack, and also a manual on and off
switch. You can select it to play just the built in
speaker or the two others you can connect.
(Each speaker can play a different sound)
loaded my unit at Foxpro with some new very nice
sounds, here are a few of what I have, Crazy
critter, luscious lips, baby pig and LIL PIG, TO
NAME A FEW, and I also loaded many of my own sounds.
unit is small compact and very nice to pack away, I
decided on the extra SP55 speaker, it’s a good size
and very very loud at night. The built in speaker is
good enough for calling at night and will reach out
AT LEAST in a circular area around you of easily
900m. But if windy the extra larger speaker is a
is what I love about this caller, you can switch it
on at a distance from the remote by pushing the AUX
on the remote or off by pushing the MUTE for 5
seconds. This saves lots of battery power. It takes
8 rechargeable penlights.
Scorpion shown open, it also has a sound card like a
preset 4 of my favourites on the remote and they
start at volumes I want them to start at, also the
remote burns red at night, not BLUE! So it lights up
nicely and you don’t have to worry about spooking
game! Also you can make that light on the remote
dimmer, so it’s not so bright, simply push RECALL
and P4 at the same time to dim the remote light.
(This is not on the instruction sheet).
You can even make the writing bigger on the
remote to read it! Simply push MUTE and VOLUME
UP buttons at the same time. It is such a nice
feature for people like me with bad eyes up
aerial is at the back of the caller and it is never
in the way. It has a lanyard on the call itself and
also a hole on the top flap of the caller and bottom
if you want to really secure it shut with a cable
general caller is very neat and with 100 sounds what
more do you want. I have 7 jackal sounds I use and
about 7 different food sounds, that’s 14 in total,
the other 86 sounds are just a bonus.

DIE GELUID LIL PIGGY, DIT IS ’N MAL GELUID!!!!
Another nice feature is if you run two extra
speakers you can set the remote to play a different
sound from each speaker, this confuses animals, we
did this in Namibia the last time, it works well.
can make writing bigger on the remote if you can’t
read small writing and you can also change the
writing to show at different angles. This Scorpion
is very nice indeed.
This is an idea of how I lay out my
caller, and use a net to cover both just as an extra
precaution. Most times I don’t use the large extra
speaker. The built in one is excellent.
FoxPro’s SP55 speaker and the Scorpion, a very loud
few other points are also nice including the
programming of the Remote control, just like the
FX5. Simply put on the remote, push P1 until it
shows on top of the lighted screen, (hold about 3
seconds). Then turn the knob at top and search for
your sound, lets say no 67, when 67 is highlighted,
turn up the volume that you want it to begin with
when calling, then push P1 again to save the sound,
then do the others also like that . I have 4 special
sounds on P1, P2, P3 and P4 all ready on the touch
of a button.
manual is 22 pages long and covers everything you
need to know.
remote lights up red at night and tells you what
volume your caller is 0-40, 40 is the highest
volume, it has a clock to tell you how long you been
calling, a battery metre to show battery life left
and it shows you what sound you have, it gives a
list of 6 sounds numbered 00 to 200, and as you
scan with the knob on top of the remote it goes
through the sound list, you get the sound you want
and then push that turning knob on top of the
If you want a really classy game
call, and its results you are after buy the
Scorpion, it is worth it!
The prices are about as follows;
(Depends on the Rand against the Dollar)
Foxpro XR6 with 16 sounds + remote
Foxpro ZR2 with 12 sounds + NO remote
Foxpro FX3 with 32 sounds + remote
FX5 with 50 sounds with remote R4500-00
Scorpion with 100 sounds + remote
FX5 comes with 50 sounds but can take 200 sounds if
you want to load more. If you order any of these
calls tell Joe to load MY sounds for you, then you
get the correct sounds. To place an order mail
firstname.lastname@example.org talk to Joe.
All these units can also take your
own sounds that you want to load to the caller. It
is very simple. With the ZR2 you can load your own
sounds without a computer.
