    I've seen a few fans of the G&H Super Mags on this page over the years. I hardly ever use them, but we broke em out this past weekend and I had forgotten how bad they roll in the wind.

    We have Cans, Redheads, and Scaup.

    Do you guys add weight to the keel to keep them from rolling or what's the secret?

    Thanks!

    Not a fan of any G&H decoy. If you don't have hundreds fill them with low expansion foam to make them heavier. I use Higdon Battleships that are foam filled. They don't rock excessively and pop the water like hollow decoys.

    The keels most definitely have a "light weight" type sand in them, in my opinion.

    I have replaced a number of my super mags keels (cans, b. bills and such) with "heavier" sand.

    If you go to replace the sand, use caution to avoid ripping the plug in the keel and thus letting sand out or water in.

    I have also noticed the big decoys seem to "roll" more if the heads are turned to either side.
