Avian X Toplight

Postby cONG » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:41 pm

I have looking at buying some, but want some more input and reviews. If you have any pitchers plz post them up. Do you notice any difference in birds decoys inn? How is the paint holding up? I know they just came out but someone must have some input.

I got 18 on Texas rig and have hunted them three times. No noticeable painr wear and the birds didn't not react different. Not the cure all end all to decoy shy birds but the have good head positions.

I have a dozen of them, I have kept them in a slotted bag just for the fact of what I paid for them. Looks on the water and movement are hands down top of the line. About to grab another dozen, all will be Texas rigged and thrown in a mesh decoy bag. I have taken one the decoys and tossed it around in the back of the truck and what not, no damage to the paint. Like I said I am getting more without any hesitation. This is also a very short relationship, we will see what my opinion is after a full season.

I have 3 dozen. So far, so good. No complaints at all. Very very realistic.

Bought half a dozen and couldn't be any happier. These are the most realistic decoys on the market hands down! The plastic they are made out of have a little give to it so they wont crack. with the new swim keels they move with the slightest breeze. I would recommend these to anyone.

How are the keels holding up guys? Put my hands on some, but the keels felt very flimsy, was concerned with them freezing and cracking. Great looking blocks, just would like some feedback on the keels. Thanks!

I've hunted twice in weather pushing 10°, no problem with cold water. no paint chips or anything.

My little brother picked up a 1/2 of them. I think they do look pretty dang good, and so far they appear to be very durable as well. i threw them out today and didnt see a single chip of paint. but no difference in how or if birds decoy. we had birds landing in the decoys with them this morning and last Friday when I hunted over them.

My buddy and I picked up 3 dozen I think. All of them were texas riged, toss in a big mouth decoy back, banged around and abused. They held up great. Like G&H great. I was worried about the keels, they seemed flimsey, but they are fine I did dust them flat Krylon clear coat in August to help protect them from scatching. They look awesome and are durable, great combo.
