Can't say too much for the full bodies but I had a dozen FA goose floaters and the paint was garbage!

I repainted some that the paint flaked off and the blue primer was showing. Had a patch about the size of a football on one side that was blue. At least with flambeaus or something else they don't use neon colors underneath them

Thanks for the feed back guys that was what I was worried about, I didn't get the speck floaters because I Hurd they was bad about taking water, I guess I'm back to deciding what I wanna try won't use ghg because of paint. I have no problem with big foots just wanted something more realistic. That leaves me with higdon Dakota's or avian x

I have the floaters and guessing paint would be same on the stand ups. I put clear coat on them as a lot recommend on here and it did a great job. no paint flaking off now. but Id get a better brand that paint holds up on if you can

If your talking about the new ones, there great! Put some 3 1/2 BB through 3 of them and there's only holes. No paint flaking or peeling. Couldn't scratch it off either with my finger nail...

I think FA hit a homer with these dekes but I would want more head positions.

I just bought a 4 pack of FA HD full body lessers at a silent auction for $60.00. I figured for the price I couldn't go wrong. Hopefully they will hold up good!
