    I agree. I bought 50 to try them. $2 a decoy was a good trial price.

    I agree......the wire seems like it will rip bags. The black stakes are to glossy as well. The bags are very glossy as well.

    I've been really busy and just now got to posting up these pictures from canpoint. I'll try to label them, but if I am wrong, canpoint please post up the correct info.

    Deadly's on left knockdown on right

    1. Is a dos bigger bag not a great back support
    2. Deadly
    3. Knockdown I like them as much as the deadly
    4. Skyflys smaller bag back support is alright

    Back support of skyflys

    IMO Skyflys are a waste of money even though they are very cheap. The tyvek they use is different than the tyvek used for deadlies or sillosocks. It doesn't dry out and holds moisture compared to the aforementioned 2 above. Also have had probably 8-10 come apart already picking up. I bought 25 dozen to try. Hunting in Canada now with them. I own 1000 deadlies and my buddy has several cubes of sillosocks with us. The Skyflys are a disappointment.

    I don't know if it's a different tyvek but something is definitely different because they do not dry out as quick for sure.
