    Has anyone used the skyfly decoys for more than 1 season preferrably more than 2 seasons wanting to hear how they are holding up and any pro/cons you guys may have

    Do they become "wrinkled" like the White Rocks ? Or is the tyvek a little thicker ? I like the newer print for the Snows and Blues that they have now. We are thinking about swapping out some older WR for the newer SkyFly's

    No, the collars don't wrinkle & hold it like others

    They hold up great, and are backed by a 1 year warranty on the bags and 3 for the support! The support functions a lot better than a WR IMO.

    Yes, they do wrinkle up like all decoys. I think the tyvek is the same as white rocks, deadly's, or sillosocks.

    The rod is a little thicker on the skyfly's( harder to get in tough ground), the white rock bag is wider, both same length, the skyfly's do not have an extra layer at the joint, I have three that already have holes from getting pinched in between the support. THree days of use, but moved the spread three times. That being said, i have knockdowns, white rocks, deadly's, and skyfly's in my spread.

    I like the featherflex decoys, I wish I would have seen these when I build a spread last spring. Not sure on their durability. Good Luck hunting!!!

    I believe he's referring to the White Rock collapsible fullbodies. Similar to or the same technology as the old feather flex turkey decoys.
