I got tired of dealing with the heads loose and falling off so I ordered 20 various position Bigfoot heads and attached them with toggle eye bolts and 2 inch fender washers so the heads stay on. I used a 1 1/4" hole saw drill bit to cut a hole in the base of the decoy head and used 5/16" toggle eyebolts in 4 or 5 inch length. If you order the Bigfoot floater heads you won't have to cut a hole but will need to use 3/8" toggle eyebolts to mount them. I flocked the original heads that came with the decoys and sawed the lower knob off so I could also mount the original heads with toggle bolts . When it comes time to re-flock I can just unscrew the eyebolt and the toggle wing nut will fall right out of the head so it can be re-used. I have them Texas rigged on 400# mono. These decoys work awesome especially on jerk cords. I recently bought 9 more off Craigslist for $40. I put 2 up in original condition so it leaves me with 34 to use. I buy everyone I can find. If you hunt water too deep for Texas rig you can attach 2' drops to them with snaps on the end and long line them. They ride rough water well since the bottom sucks them to the surface of the water. IMO they are the best goose floater Flambeau ever made.
Yes, these are the ones I have. I bought a bunch of decoys and there were 8 of these, I don't have any floaters so it helps. I think i'm going to buy some heads like you said and mix it up a bit.
