GHG black ducks vs. Avian x flocked black ducks

Postby m3500 » Sun Mar 09, 2014 5:46 am

I'm stuck between the GHG life size harvester pack black ducks and the Avian x flocked black ducks. I like the looks of both and they are the same postures, but the avian x are more expensive $85 compared to the GHG $50. So if anyone has any reviews on these decoys it would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I use braided decoy line and I'm not sure if the avian x depth adjusters are too big to hold the braided line...
If it flies it dies, if it just sits there it dies too.

My GHG decoy experience has been mixed at best, but their black ducks were among the least disappointing. Please know that mine are left in the sun all season which is hard on anything, but the black ducks didn't turn colors like the teal or lose paint like mallards. Did eventually fade beyond use, which could be a non issue for those who don't leave them out.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

As you get older, and hunting time is more available to you, it can get easy to go back to a honey hole too often. Next thing you know, it's not so much honey and more of a hole.

Without question Avain-X. I had both of them side by side in hand and in the field. I sold the GHG. No comparison.
