Buying used Full Body Decoys?

Postby scubasteve » Wed Oct 03, 2012 5:16 am

I'm looking at some used full body decoys. Fellow says he has some Bigfoot and some Higdon. Not sure why he is selling them but was looking for advise on what to look out for. What is normal wear and what is abuse and what signs of problems down the road. Any help or opinions on these brands is welcome.

Two brands that hold up the best over time.

its a little late now, but FWIW for anyone else.. you cant go wrong with bigfoots, period. Im not a fan of my Higdon's because of the feet bases. Yes they are different then my bigfoots. If im going to buy used decoys, even if they're in really good shape, im not paying more then 20 bucks a decoy, if im feeling really cheep, no more then 15..... 1: you can buy them new for just a little bit more, and 2: i dont really need any more.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.
