I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed this. I've been hunting over carrylites from the 70's my entire life. I really like the huge supermag water keels. Super light and super large. Perfect combination. If you're hunting tight quarters in timber the ducks have limited visibility. I would focus more on visibility then realism. The bigger the better. Some of the best mallard decoys I have are G&H super mag Blue Bills. They're the size of a goose and black and white. Throw a few mallard decoys in with them and you're golden.
