As much pride as G&H seems to have for their product, I'll agree that your decoys shouldve lasted a bit longer than what they have. Most of my decoys are G&H and most of them are their supermags ( pintails, mallards, bluebills, redheads and cans). I have about 4 dozen of their floating Canada decoys and a few doz. Canada shells. In all, maybe 225 of their ducks and 75 geese. Almost all of these decoys are approx 15-18 years old and may stay out at a permanent blind up to 60 days per year. Thats 60 days in ice, snow, heat, sun, wind etc and they have held up well. What may have changed from 18 years ago (my decoys) to 4 years ago ( yours ) , I dont know. After 18 years worth of use, some are getting split at the seams where the keel meets the body, a broken head or two, and so on. What gets me, is at the price they are asking now, particularly for their supermags ( $300 per doz) and (it seems) more and more posts about poor paint adhesion, when I go to replace as needed, G&H may no longer be the brand I shop for. Trying to support a fellow American is one thing, having to sell my house or donate a kidney to afford their decoys is another.
