TOUCHES OF 120 GRANDSIRE DOUBLES

Here is my collection of true extents of Grandsire Doubles. As for the other parts of my collection, four calls are used - bob (b), single (s), extreme (e) and bingle (g) along with plain leads (p).

There are more callings for the extent than you thought, nineteen in all. Thus there are 160 touches with rotations. Of these, only two callings (10 touches) use conventional calls, including Roan's original six-call:
