    Anyone in Omaha have any of the dive bomb Canadas that I could look at? Got a sample from Big Al's, own some real geese, but would like to see a dive bomb in person before making a decision on what to order.

    Are they just coroplast like Big Al's decoys? Cost is nearly the same, just wondering how much of a difference there is in material, ink, or the process used to make them.

    They are coroplast. Had 5 dozen for a couple years and then sold them. Haven't seen Big Al's in hand to compare to.

    What made you decide on the Dive Bombs over Big Al's?

    They just looked better in the sun, more detail and the stakes will not pull out when you pick up the decoy. DB stakes insert from the top into the coroplast and BA runs the stake in from the bottom. Unles BA changed this you pick up the decoy and the stand stays in the ground. Don't take my word for it, check it out.

    Big Al's have the option now of their H stakes or the thru body style stakes like Dive Bombs. I thought, thru pictures, that Dive Bombs looked better too but I'm still gonna compare in person before buying a large amount. Thanks.

    I live in Blair and have some dive bombs. At the time I purchased them, big al's didn't have the through stake that he does not. The price can't be beat! I also believe the dive bombs also have flocked the heads. I don't make it to Omaha very much, but could meet you have way in between sometime.

    I will have 10 dozen DB Canada's for sale if anyone is interested. Going to buy the New DB2F decoys.
