I got one last season. They are made of expanded foam with steel bearings & wing shaft.
Mine came in from the factory (i'm sure it's a garage in someones back yard) with a cracked head. I had to repair the crack and also found a large void in the neck area, also repaired.
It's not a heavy duty decoy, look for a plastic body one instead.
Flapper in a oldsquaw spread, they do draw in the divers good.
