Many people have been downing GHG decoys on the fourm. They had a bad batch of paint this year and hundreds of dozens of decoys where sold with the bad paint. Avery is replacing all of the bad decoys and I can assure your there new paint is the BEST. I bought a doz. of the the wigion from them after duck season closed and I couldn't scratch the paint off with a pocket knife, if that isn't durability I don't know what is. On top of that they look amazing and I can't wait to get them on the water and I'm looking into mabey geting some of there mallards at the begining of next year. I'm selling some of my old decoys now, because i'm looking to buy the Avery decoys. Plus i'm to lazy to put some good touchup paint on them, :D . Anyways i'm with Avery on this one, I've been treated well by them and am exeptionaly impressed by the decoys. Ok i'm done now.
