They are good looking dekes but the paint isn't so great, and I have heard to many times they are made by or incoporated with GHG and avery and we all know how great their paint is :laughing: If you wanna spend $90 a dozen for plastics I'd go g & H or buy some herters foamers

Simply no need. Why spend that much more on a deke, that has been photo imaged, when a regular painted deke works equally well?? I don't know if you guys have noticed, but the Cabelas "real image" bluebills, look near identical to GHG bluebills, and are $40 more....I think its ridiculous.

My buddy bought 2 dz last year, they worked ducks well and we had no piant problems, but he eventually glued the heads on as the would come off when we tossed them on the water.
