I will not ever buy them again. We bought 2 dozen of them for $20 a dozen last year and they didn't even last one trip before we were missing big spots of paint. We didn't expect them to be the best, but we thought they could last us more than just 1 whole trip. We still hunted over them and shot quite a few limits of ducks. Paint was pretty much completely gone. If I was you, I would save my money and go buy some other type like G&H or GHG. Buying Remington's will only make you frustrated. Cheap decoys get cheap results. That's my .02

I have some GHG hotbuy decoys and they work great. My friend shot one, and the decoy didn't get any holes in it. I was thinking that is very derable. There was 2 little marks on the side. I would buy some of these instead.theres my 2 cents

I wouldn't suggest that the GHG are anywhere close to being durable enough to take a blast. I've got a couple of dozen and I've seen them take on water after a blast just like the other brands I have. GHG makes good looking decoys, and I would take them over the other cheap brands in a heartbeat, but they ain't bulletproof, that is for sure.
My goal for this year is to break by partner from shooting the decoys. I'm gonna start charging him $10 for each deke he takes out!

I bought some redhead decoys last year about a month after the season closed and when i went to rig them up the other day i noticed paint already missing. Biggest pile of crap ive ever seen.

Yea, I remember when the redheads first came out, I thought they looked really good and had to have some. I'm glad I only got a half dozen to start with cuz they are the worst decoys I've ever owned. I hunted with them once. Maybe one of my buddies will buy em off me! :toofunny:

Chuck Norris doesn't go hunting, becasue hunting infers the possibility of failure. Rather, Chuck Norris goes killing.
