sportplast goose floaters

Postby LiquidA45 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 8:53 pm

anyone use any of these? They have one they collapses and then some plane floaters. I walk in all my spots and figure their collapsable ones would be great for how/where I hunt. especially for $160/dozen. any input?

well since over 50 have looked and no one responded I figured I would just order one and see what I think. I'll do an extensive review and report back. seems like a great way for a couple of guys who walk in to set up numerous goose decoys on a budget.

Got this thing in last night and I'm very happy with it. Pictures will follow in the next day after I see how it rides in the water.

I just looked them up and seems like a pretty unique company with all the products (different species) of decoys tthey have.

I see people talking about running all coot spreads, that doesn't even touch the amount of balls it would take to run cormorant decoys haha.

Left the decoy deflated and folded up in my trunk for 3 days and 2 nights with my shotgun laying on top of it. Pulled it out of the trunk and inflated it back up, no serious creasing to be seen. So far I am happy with it, once it passes the float test this weekend I think I will go ahead and order a dozen of em. You could probably fit close to 3 dozen of these things in a decoy bag compared to the 4 regular floaters I had to arrange like a puzzle to make fit. For someone looking for numbers as far as floaters go, this is the ticket I believe. Decoy practically inflates itself and the rubber seems thick enough to possibly withstand being shot up to 30 yards? I might even test that theory once I get the dozen in. Knutsons sells them for $160 a dozen which I think is a great deal since it would cost roughly $300 to get new floaters.

awesome! I have been looking at these decoys for sometime and have wondered about them. I wanted some for hunting out of my carsten puddler and wanted to carry a doz instead of around three or four. thanks for posting the review. I see they also make these in mallards and thinking about some of them too.

What do you think would be best for cord and anchor system for these?

I Texas rig all my decoys but just put them in a decoy bag, I did the same with this. Seems like a mess but the pull right out no problem.

Yeah they make several species, a guy could make a very portable spread. I'm actually impressed with their Gadwall.
