Which shells?

Postby wjarrell » Mon Dec 02, 2013 7:38 pm

I'm getting ready to make a decoy purchase for our new goose blind next season. We have 3 dozen big foot full bodies and now we need some shells. I want what every other goose hunter wants, a quality decoy that will last him. The only brands that I have seen in person are GHG and G&H. And I have had my fair share of paint problems with GHG. Any advise would be much appreciated.

go with what u think looks and last the best. we have ghg, g&h, bigfoot, flambue. personally i like the ghg and the bigfoot. the ghg look the best i think but the bigfoots are indistructable. we havent had to big of a problem with the paint on the ghg but they do get some skuffs, bigfoot sleepers look great to.

ive got 4 or 5 doz of the GHG OS shells and wouldnt get rid of them for the world. Had em for 4 or 5 years and the paint has held up really well along with the flocking on the heads. IMO the best shell out there.
Theres always someone out there thats better then you. I'm that guy.

I have the GHG OS and the BFs. BFs all the way. The BF sleepers stack perfectly and a one piece design. Even the semi resters stack somewhat. The GHG OS are nice thought. I hate attaching the heads every day. Waste of time.

They are cheap and have split before. Price point is good. Spend the extra money and buy shells that will last a lifetime.

We run mostly GHG OS shells, but we recently got our hands on some Higdon shells (the new ones) and I may just but them from now on, same with the FBs

KK were you refering to the Storm Fronts.. If so I have first hand experience with them and they are awesome... They look brand new and are a couple years old, I'm very hard on my equipment

These ones except non flocked
