Wasn't this one of Flambeu's earlier prototypes?
I have been using a lot of the hot buy mallards and replacing them every 3 years. At $24.99 it's pretty hard to beat the prices, but the paint quality stinks. The paint looks good, but starts chipping and peeling off pretty quickly. I can get about 3 seasons and then they start looking pretty hammered. The best decoys I've ever owned are the G&H. I've still got 3 dozen G&H mallards that I've used for the past 11 seasons and they still look pretty darn good.

The are made out of flat cardboard! I know my grandfather has killed a lot of ducks in his day but it really makes we wonder how he did it with the calls and decoys he used. The evolution of duck hunting has been pretty crazy. Very interesting though.

I just wonder how much is really need to get birds to sit down. Especially when you look at the new goose decoys like the Avian X and Dave Smiths as compared to the old school magnum shells. Maybe they just shot better using good ole lead
