Ghg goose floaters

Postby m3500 » Fri Jul 26, 2013 1:56 pm

Are the ghg lifesize goose floaters more or less durable then say the tanglefree or FA goose floaters? If put in slotted bags would they keep there paint longer?
If it flies it dies, if it just sits there it dies too.

The goose floaters are nails compared to other brands IMO. Have seen a few issues with the other two brands you mentioned.

I just got some speck floaters ghg and all the paint is chipping and they just came out of the box and 2 out of the 6 heads wont even go on the decoy GHG has went way down hill on there product so if you buy them make sure you take them out at the store and look at them make sure the heads go on the body!

I've been hearing this same thing a lot lately in general not just on here about GHG/Avery products in general. I have owned quite a few Avery decoys in the past none that were made in the last 4 years and they all were holding up pretty well but since then from what I've heard like I said bad reviews. The newer the decoys I bought that were Avery the worse it got. FFD lessers were the last I owned. FYI

That shouldn't be happening. Call avery CS and let them know the issues you are having. They will have you send in pictures, and possibly the decoys so they can get it figured out.

I won 4 Bigfoot floaters at a DU event last fall, but haven't used them yet.
They are getting cords and weights next week.

My GHG speck floaters sucked in terms of paint and water tightness. G&H speck floaters have been aces for me.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
