Anyone know when these are coming out? I'm not a ghg fan but I want to get some of these.

Not till next season, there has been no time table given to us for a release date yet. They should come out in early August, but my guess would be late september.

The new pintails look great too. I just hope the paint issue will be fixed.

The paint so far on all of my GHG's scratch off with just my fingernail. I've talked to a lot of others that have the same problem right out of the box.

End of 2013 summer. Paint has never been an issue so they should hold up well.

Do a google search and even more will come up. Paint on the GHG has always been an issue. I've called avery once and they ignored the problem. I have 2 dozen hotbuys that I ended up painting over. My $.97 acrylics have handled the abuse a lot better.

I beat the crap out of all of my decoys, every duck or goose floater I own is texas rigged, and I throw them in and out of a boat all year long, with out bags. I mostly use the life size series decoys, paint has never been an issue, sure there might be some scratches or a small chip here and there, Nothing that would stop me from killing ducks. I also haven't heard anybody complain about the pro grade paint at all. And I talk to hundreds of guys every year at shows across the midwest about them. If a small chip or scratch in a decoy causes you not to kill ducks or geese, there is something else very wrong. Not trying to be a prick here, but I just think some guys get way to crazy about decoy paint must be perfect to kill them.

I understand completely. The only progrades I have are the gwt. The paint chipped off of them right out of the box and have a little left on them. My hotbuys were the worst. I got a single season out of them before 70% of the paint was completely gone. At the time, they were my only mallards I had. With a single scrape of the fingernail, the paint was off. My mallard sleepers were the same. I'm painting them into canvasbacks for next season. The majority of my life size are okay except for my pintail hens. They lost a lot of paint after one season. I know they will still work I guess, it's just when I invest a lot of money in decoys, I'd like for them to last a lot longer than they have. Maybe I got a bad batch every time who knows. I still kill ducks but at this rate, a lot of my decoys will be paintless within a few years.

There are many concerned comments on this brand on this website, I only can speak of my Golden Eyes of GHG. White came off in large areas first 30 days of use. (weekend use) brought them in, touched up, re painted the area and then put 3 coats of clearcoat on them for protection.

I can't believe somebody just defended GHG and said What paint problem. Exactly, paint is definitly not a problem since it won't be there! I would show some pictures of naked GHG decoys, but they have been painted black and white for divers.

:lol: :lol: :lol: True dat! You gotta clear coat em if you want them to last. The got some 2 year old ghg widgeons that I didn't clear coat and they are now divers. The good thing about em is no black paint was used, just white and grey.

Here are some overpriced Avery decoys right out of the box. Argued with a friend all the way to gander mt. that Avery was junk. Laughed when we get there and opens the box :lol:

Hot buys are cheap, quality will be low. My ghg mallard shells chip,pretty easy as well. Spatrick is right though, if you get to the right spot, paint does not matter.


My ghg diver decoys have lasted years and years and have been beat to hell. And i mean beat. I swear the divers have a different paint altogether.

I agree with you on this. However, I have had paint issues with widgeon pro-grades, they are 2 years old and have been painted into divers because the paint completely chipped off. I am very hard on decoys though, I texas rig and beat em up really bad. May have gotten a couple bad batches though. Now I clear coat my ghg's and no longer have problems.

I know this is been hashed out here a lot before and I can only speak to my own experience but I have the green headgear divers I have the bluebills canvasbacks redheads the ringnecks the goldeneyes and I've had them for years and the paint has been great for me . The only decoys I've had trouble with was the final approach mallards that rode up to Canada In a bag And we're almost paint free when we got to Saskatchewan. I'm not a green headgear or Avery rep just a hunter. But I can truly say what paint issue.

Do you not know what a member of a pro staff does!? They go out and basically hype up their company and make it seem like their the best. And yes I stuck up for Avery because I use Avery decoys. They aren't perfect but I can kill birds with them. No decoy is perfect and all will shed paint, if you look even Dakota has complaints. If you have to have everything perfect including decoy paint, maybe waterfowling isn't the sport for you. You have to take the good with the bad and compromise a lot. Not trying to start any beef with anyone. Everyone of you have just as much right to post your opinions about Avery or any other matter. Happy hunting to you guys and may the decoy gods help you with the paint.

I disagree that all decoys will shed paint. G&H and Big Foot don't shed paint. They may get scratched from beign beaten around but the paint won't peel, chip or shed off.
