DURABILITY of Final Approach DUCK Decoys.....

Postby puddlerjumper » Fri Aug 12, 2005 11:52 pm

What do you guys think of these duck decoys, they look alright and they passed the finger nail scratch-er-up test. I don't know whether GHG will be on sale tomorrow, but I know that Final Approach will be. What do you guys think of them? They look ALRIGHT, but anything is better than flambeau(first hand experience).

They copied GHG, they're about the same price, they look worse than GHG, they are brand new so they might have some bugs to be worked ut yet...go with the tried and trusted GHG life sizes
Some mistakes are too fun to make only once

I wouldn't call them tried and trusted, they have more bugs than a rotten stump.

I won't be buying any of those fianl approach dekes, but if the price is right and I need #s go ahead and pick them up.

I've looked at some first hand at Bass Pro. :thumbsdown: The head is WAY too small for the body. They look weird, and I really don't like the hen. Just my opinion.

As pintail21 said, they copied GHG's el-cheapo decoys. Unfortunately I bought four dozen of them last year and the paint was falling off before the season ended. (I think they were having a sale and we got them $20 per dozen.) I have had the Flambeau decoys for several seasons and they are still in very good shape.

Here is a link to what you DON'T want to buy. Don't be sucked in by the el-cheapo decoy vortex.....
