I just bought a mix of BOND and REMINGTON dekes, 25 of 'em. Half were still in the original shipping bags and box. I got them from a guy on Ebay, I paid $36 for them. They look pretty good and the paint seems ok. I tried to scratch it off, it stayed put..?? Maybe I got some good ones...who knows. The only thing that I really noticed was that they look a bit smaller than other dekes I have, GHG or Flambeau. The flying dekes you are speaking of, I have two of them with the springs on them. Mine are made by REMINGTON and look great. Ebay also, $18 a piece. I plan to set them up a few yards behind my roto wings. I think it will give to the whole effect of birds gliding in to the birds landing and birds already on the water. Will it work....we'll see.
