I've been hunting with the 5 dozen non-flocked Dive Bombs this season and they do work to a point. They catch attention of the geese but I also saw a lot of flares. We used them in cloudy days, sunny days, over flooded field... I also saw them bringing in the Canada's over snow while hunting for snow geese in upstate New York. That being said; they are smaller -by a lot, than Big Al's. They do have some glare to them even though they are matte paint. I bought them because they were cheaper than Big Al's (also Big Al is out of stock on the Greaters) but after seeing so many birds flaring I wanna check out Big Al's X-14 or just black and whites to compare them. Silos are definitely lighter in the budget and in the bag compared to full bodies.
