I own both DSD's and RDC's. The RDC's are every bit as realistic as the DSD's. My RDC's are holding up better in the paint dept as well. The only drawback for me on the RDC's is the weight. A 12-slot back filled with a doz is just too damn heavy for me to be lugging around in the field. If they come out with a lighter decoy, it will be a game-changer. I honestly don't understand the DSD groupies pimping those decoys when there's no way they're any more realistic than RDC's and never seem to be available unless you've had your name on the waiting list for 2 yrs. Funny how guys like to make themselves feel better after dropping money on expensive gear by telling themselves and others that their **** is the best--even though it ain't necessarily true.
