What rides the water best?

Postby NESoDak » Fri Sep 24, 2004 1:53 am

I am already looking towards next years season and am looking forward to adding more decoys to my spread. The theft of three dozen or so decoys has me looking to add/upgrade to something new.

I would like anyones opinion on Herters burlap decoys, Blackwater Rough Rider decoys and Herters Cork decoys. The cork decoys do not come in the variety I would like for a full spread of course, but I am have always read that nothing rides the water more realistically than cork. Herters burlap blocks look good, and are hard as a rock making me believe they will hold up well. The Rough Rider decoys ride the water very well and seem to be built "hell for stout" but they weigh a ton and are even more expensive than Herters cork dekes.

The Rough Riders are awesome. Wish I could afford to have some of my own.

All of the herters decoys ride the water superior. We have i think about 5dozen mixed bag... We just have the standard foam ones they ride the water just as well as the cork in my opinion but hey if ya got the cash i guess go with cork... by the way the roughriders a very heavy... and they have a detachable keel. I personally would stay with herters model72 foamers....
