    Your not a staffer but worked on the contract between avery and Cabela's?
    And you "hunt more than most"...really?
    Are you saying the customer complaints on avery/GHG china products and their awesome customer service for years was NOT the reason Cabela's gave them the boot? Or was it just that they were making to much money so they didn't give a crap what little ole Cabela's thought?

    Where does it say I worked I was in on any Avery deal? I have worked in the outdoor industry most of my life. I hunt at least 70 days a season for ducks, got to 90 once. Really trying to get to 109. I have yet to have a problem with GHG products or customer service. Though I have seen some of their early problems.

    If you have any other questions or comments pm me.


    Back to it.

    Where/how is the best way to obtain coax cable? Is there a source for used? I want to try and rig a few hundred up like that for BB.

    Guys, lets not get into a Avery verses Cabella's debate. If you want to do that start another thread and have at it.

    I am really liking the cable. Its heavy and sinks, its stiff so it coils nice and doesn't tangle.

    I got a buddy that works for the cable company. So cable is cheep! :tu

    You were the one who asked for help. Don't shoot the messenger.

    I'm new to it but this is what we do, we leave the decoys clipped to the main line 30" drops bought the mainlines & drops with clips pre-rigged by Decoy Rigs, we store them in slotted bags from Rogers. we weight both ends with 5 lb weights pulled tight, once in awhile the dog hooks a line but swims over it most the time, no problems with line tangles when we want to switch from blues to cans we pull the decoy out unclip and clip on the new one. works well so far for us.

    I use the long line from cabelas in varying lengths. I run about 20" drops with 4" longline clips. Depending on current I usually only anchor one end, but if I'm going to be hunting the changing tide, I'll anchor both ends to avoid the tangle. I store my long lines on an extension cord reel. Quick pick up. The $9 reel at Home Depot holds 4 lines. I just keep my decoys in standard decoy bags.

    That's how most do it, including myself. The coax sounds faster. When looking to deploy large spreads (200+) it may save a ton of time.
