Remington Mallard Decoys

Postby cinrds » Mon Oct 17, 2005 8:52 am

Has anyone used these? How do they look? Are they better or worse then Flambeau's?
The new bass pro in Tulsa is opening and they are selling them for less then $20.00 a dz.

What do you thank?

Look the redhead brand mallards over really close then compare them to the remingtons and see if $12 difference is worth it to you.

The Remington brand decoys are made by Bond. I was warned about that brand sometime back, because they are extremely cheap. Well my friend, I needed cheap. My local Fleet & Farm was selling them for $1-something a piece. I had to dig for the best representatives of the bunch but was able to find some that were relatively scuff free. -read: not perfect by any means-
They have spent a few days in the marshes and ponds, and countelss bangs against eachother in the gang bag. So far, they've held up fine. Whther they will by the end of the season or not? Only time will tell.
If cheap and disposable is what you need, then by all means go for them. If you can afford to spend more cash on better decoys that will most surely last you longer before you have to repaint them...then go for a more reputable brand.

Good luck.

They were about a 1.50 ea at the fleet farm here so I got a few to check em out. The paint holds up well and for the price you can't beat em.

Mine have held up quite well too. I really tossed these things around, and other than a few minor scratches the paint has held. I would certainly have no problem picking up more for backups, or to even out the spread.

I have a dozen remington mallards.... this is their third season and the paint is startin to come off pretty badly but they seemed to do alright for the first 2 seasons...i read in this forum that some one suggested GHG hot buys and i strongly agree with him because they are fairly cheap...the paint doesn't chip off, and they look awesome.

I would look at the GHG Hotbuys, they are $20 a dozen right now at Cabelas. IMO you can't get a better "cheap" decoy...

first let me say that they are not made by bond.bond is not into the decoy business anymore.they are made by tanglefree.yes when bond did make them they had paint problems.now that tangleefree has it they have a knew maker and no paint problems and knew styles.Tanglefree decoys hold up better then flabaues and carrylites and are holding up just as good if not better then GHG.I run both in my spread.

Great way to build a diver rig. Cheap and easy to re-paint, no tearing up Expensive decoys.
