    Agreed ^ the non flocked ones are super durable and seem to be impossible to get the paint off unless you leave them out all the time.

    Please tell us you're a very young kid who is either a prostaffer or a wannabe prostaffer (both ridiculous). If that's the case, then this type of comment is expected. If not, then help me understand how he gets a 366 day waterfowl season and the rest of us get 64, 70, or 107 depending on flyway?
    Also explain why he wears waders on field hunts??

    Fred made a claim a few years back about how many days a year he wears waders. I believe it was right after he said that FFD's melt snow.

    Disagree. The GHG specks shine like a mirror.

    Saw the painted at the local Cabelas. Like most new decoys the promo picture looks much better than the actual thing. I was not wowed by them at all. They are certainly a step up from GHG but still behind the DSDs and RDCs.

    Yah they also are 179$ for 6. Common sense they aren't as good as DSD

    I pulled the trigger on a box last weekend in Wpg. The cdn price is comparable to usd price after conversion. 249.00$ cdn. They look great. I have always used 6 specks among my honker spread for the last 5-6 years. Now I will have a complete dozen to put out.
    My original 6 are ghg purchased back in '06 in CO on a Red Rocks weekend. Those old ghg paint is quite flat. And are in great shape still.

    Lots more detail on the A/X obviously. The paint is pretty dull on the non flocked. Maybe a bit shiny under the belly but really not a problem for the birds.

    We will see how the bag holds up......
