I guess thos could work for PLASTICs, but I use and cannot say enough praises for the slotted bags....even for plastics. Many hunters have stated problems with decoys and paint etc.....I think that at least some of the problems can be attributed to care.....tossing decoys into a "gang bag" will not only mar quality paints it will outright damage questionable paint. Blocks and anchors bounceing around off one another cannot be good for any decoy.

Glad you found a deal....but you may wish to consider the overall impact of saving $20 this week and the impact on the decoys after a season.......this is only my opinion!

I HATE being a pack mule. Gotta have a padded LOW back on the bag. Something that doesn't beat the hell out of my calves and thighs. Been there done that and got the key chain!

I'm with DUKHTR on this one. I used to use mesh decoy bags, and have since gone to individual slot decoy bags. They really keep your decoys from getting beat up. The individual slot bags also keeps everything very organized and there are no more tangles.

I have to agree that if you have wood or cork dekes, the slotted bags are nice.

But I use S Mag G&Hs, I use a min of 7 dz, mostly 9 dz of them at a time--there it no way slotted bags would work for me as too much valuable space would be wasted. I put 2/3 of the dekes unbagged in the bottom of the boat with about 1/3 baged and on top of the others and lash it down with bunge cords when going down the highway. I use the 2 man Cabela bags or the biggest 1 man bags from Cabelas for those decoys I bag. :thumbsup:

I've always used the mesh bags, and over time they will take their toll on your decoys, at least some of the old flambeau's are showing some wear and tear from riding in the bags. I'm going to invest in a few of the 12 slot bags and the 6 slot bags for my goose floaters. I'm no rich boy either, I work hard to get every thing I have, and I like to take care of my stuff.
