    For my hard earned money, the Sno-Bot is the only one made in the USA, and Tab provides great customer service. Yup, its spendy, but I am very, very tired of buying Chinese made products that do not last. Its the stingy man who spends the most.

    Anyone have any additional field use info on these things for geese? I hunted over a mallard clone and it definitely made a difference, not quite a game changer though.

    I have personally observed the snow-bots making a huge difference on working birds on windless days. Especially with the sun out.

    We've switched to using Sno Bots exclusively. Birds would really key into them on the approach.

    I have both and they both look great. No difference there. I'm no fan of the remote for the Clone as it is finicky and mine do not seem to work in a consistent manner. Forget to bring the accompanying remote and the decoy can't be turned on from what I can tell. (If so, someone tell me how). The only downside to the Sno Bot could be the rubber connect at the elbow of the wing spar. In just a few uses, mine already seem weaker than initially. Is it going to eventually break/ split? I don't know.

    Of all the gizmos and gadgets for snow goose hunting, these are probably my favorite. They sure aren't a necessity though. Most of the time, it doesn't seem to matter if they are being used or not.

    Anyone have a video of their sno bot?
