Floaters

Postby Slack Tide » Sun Oct 06, 2013 2:57 pm

I'm looking for a nice 4pk of floaters and a good bag for them..
I get overloaded with options looking at the magazines. What's a good 4 pack with a nice variety of head positions and a decent bag to keep them in?

Look at Tanglefree floaters they are comparable to big foots and look nasty! They are big and are durable great riding decoys as well!

You have any reviews on them? I've done well with the BF's in the field but I don't know the TF's...
I looked at the ones at Rogers for $99...that's a good deal...gotta double ck that it's free delivery....

Thanks man...but I'm going to go with a 4 variety pack of heads...BFs..

It's so typical of all the magazines now....Rogers has a $99 deal...but shipping is a lot...Cabella's is $139 but shipping is free...
You need a freakin' calculator to figure out the best deal and in the end....it's $5 here or there

A lot better than the POS GHG ones that heads fall off constantly on. And none of the stupid slotted bags. Good decision on the BFs

I won't use them always and I'll just bungee them to the bow deck...I know how awkward they can be....we have 250 in a field :no:

I think the TF's are probably bigger than the BF's and look better but its all what you prefer. They have the TF floaters that are fully flocked too if that trips your trigger any.
