I got both brands in and got to set them out one afternoon and got to take a few pics. The Big Al's are on the left and Dive bombs on the right. In this pic, two mag light 3Ds are on the left, the Big Al's and Dive bombs are mixed but the Big Al's are the browner of the two. my initial thoughts: The Big Al's stakes are thicker but I could see the need to gorilla glue them in if you were hunting in gumbo mud. I doubt many people are going to put them in and take them out by the stake which he recommends. That would involve bending over farther than most are willing to do. Clients will do what ever is easier for them despite what it might do to your decoys. The Dive Bomb stakes are nice concept but my personal preference would be for the stake to be thicker and the top of it to have a 4 to 5 inch spread instead of the current 2ish inch spread. I think they will have some shaking issues in high winds if you don't (or can't) get the stakes in very far. The coroplast on Big Al's decoys are not as thick as the dive bombs. The shine or lack of seems to be at least as good as the RG and I have killed thousands of birds over RG that were in much worse shape than either of the two in the picture. I have some more testing to do but those are my initial thoughts. I will be posting more pics and thoughts until I pick a winner.
