RedHead decoys

Postby Blake1403 » Tue Jul 30, 2013 6:28 pm

Has anybody bought these decoys? Or used them? They're on the Bass Pro Shop website. They look like they have some good deals on them.

I'm still in the "cheapest decoy on the market" (aka storm fronts) stage.

Are Storm Fronts any good? I have thought about buying some of them

If I had to choose between Redhead or Stormfront decoys, it would be Stormfront for sure. I've used both. Had a dozen Redhead brand gifted to me. I used them maybe 6 times before one started leaking. Fixed it and the next trip out another one started leaking.
Last night, I dreamed that I killed all the saggers, all the swaggers, and all of their duckface girlfriends...

It was called: The Yolocaust.

the reviews on Bass Pro for the Redhead decoys are terrible.

I have some stormfronts they're ok, I flocked the heads and tails on mine for this year. The mallard paint on the stormfronts is not very detailed, the teal and woodies are better paint scheme wise. I clear coated mine and they did fine last year but they didn't get used a ton. If you can get the stormfronts on sale I'd buy them.

The new wigeon stormfronts look awesome.

you've got to be kidding. I got my storm fronts for $20 for a dozen. If that's over priced, you might stroke out if I sent you to Dakota decoys page.

I like my storm fronts. they're not the best decoy out there and the paint isn't the best, but look at the decoys from years past and they killed ducks just fine. They are durable little decoys that's for sure. I'm still not 100 percent sold on the UV paint, but I killed birds over them last year

I had a gift card to Dicks and went with GHG prograde active mallards - $60 per 6, I got a dozen for $120. So yeah I'd say for $20 they could come unpainted and they'd still be a steal. They don't look bad on the water either.

I for one still use Strom Front decoys. I'm not a decoy expert but for the right price i'll give them a try. So far so good from what i seen out of them.
That horrible duck call, it was I!
