What call sign do you use?

I have been using the call sign "Skymaster", but I'm curious what other people use. Do you use, Cessna, Twin Cessna or just November...... or do you also use Skymaster?

I use SkyMaster.

A Chicago Center controller made initial contact the other day, unprompted, with "Super Skymaster"

I use Cessna because other pilots recognize as a high wing when they see me although Skymaster or Super Skymaster does sound a lot cooler but i think there are pilots out there that have no idea what a Skymaster is unfortunately.
Safety outweighs the coolness factor for me.

I find that when hangar flying, more pilots know what a Skymaster is than a 337. Say "Push-Pull" or "Mixmaster", and they almost always crack a smile.

I use "skymaster". Have only had one controller ask me what the designation was to be clear (C337).
