Yes its one of burpyfrogs listings its the "large diver body" mold, and i got the head mold from american decoy. I am going to burlap them this summer, hoping to get like 10 dozen made before next season. Any suggestions for how you deal with the air in the mold? For the body I started tipping the decoy butt down pouring in the urethane and letting it expand from the bottom up while leaving the head vent screw open, then once the foam gets to the vent screw i tighten it up and this seems to work the best so far but the heads have been tricky. Also with my molds i have been keeping the screws somewhat loose so that once it does expand atleast some of the air can escape
