GHG Pintails

Postby Rory » Fri Jun 21, 2013 3:56 pm

Anybody have any experiences with the GHG Life Size Pintails? Can't really find many reviews online.

Thanks,
Rory

No experience with the pintails, but I just recieved some of there January mallards. I have to say they are junk. Some of the decoys are missing paint, and you can scratch the paint off by just rubbing your finger over it. The pintails might be different, but if there anything like there January mallards, don't bother. Hope that helps. I know Dakota makes pintails now, and they look amazing.

I picked up a dozen of the ghg life sized pintails before lasts season and I really like how they look but was pretty sceptical about them because everyone said the paint chipped. I put three light coats of flat clear coat and they held up fine being thrown in a decoy bag all season.

I have some of the over sized pintails. And they are going on their 5-6th season without slotted bags or clear coat and they look great. Paint is solid on these unlike mallards, seems to be like that on all of Avery's species.

My GHG pintails were bad for slipping paint. Maybe the quickest of my GHGs to do so.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I have both the life size and the oversize GHG pintails. I hunt salt water marsh 75% of the time which is harder on decoys than fresh water. They are all Texas rigged so can get banged around. They are very good decoys and have not had paint issues, I do not use clear coat. These decoys range in age from 9 seasons to 3 seasons, most are 3-5 seasons old. I like the profile of the drake oversized a little better than the life size drake.

I also have G&H pintails that mix in well with the GHG pintails and G&H have a swivel head.

I am looking forward to the new prograde GHG decoys which will have a few swivel heads as well as feeder poses in the box.

I run about 30 dz GHG 13 different species. All TX rigged and put out and picked up daily. All my paint is good to go no chipping or rubbing off in 2 full seasons.

Call the doctor now and set up an eye exam. Also, please be sure someone drives you there as it's quite clear your vision is severely impaired. I am surprised your eyes are even good enough to type such a bold statement. :lol3:
