    Does anyone uses these decoys? They just came on sale for $110 per 6 pack. The price is right but I have no experience with them.

    Thanks

    Yup.
    They are a shade dark, and too heavy for a mobile guy, but work fine.

    Have used them for 2-3years and no issues with flaking or chipping paint
    Had good luck with customer service as well when I needed it

    Ran 'em this year. Paint chipped on decoys still in the box. Half
    the Texas rig lines broke. Got 'em in the sale earlier this year.
    Obviously don't know about longevity. Know the T-rigs are bad.
    Won't be buying anymore.

    These are the field decoys. It sounds like there is no major flaws I need to worry about. Does anyone know of a better deal I should look into?

    I will only be using them during the late season.

    For the price. You won’t beat it. The next best deal are the avians that go on sale for 159$. If you have an easy way of getting them out to your field they will work just fine.

    I have a few dozen that I've had for a few years. They are showing a little wear but nothing too major. Like others said they are a tad dark but I like how the paint is kind of a matte finish. Less shiny then an avery decoy for sure. We usually use them as fillers and put our DSD's in the kill hole, but on this late season we had specks trying to land on the Tanglefree. Go figure

    JuvieCoot - I wish I had more DSD to put in my kill hole. I only have 1.5 dozen at this time. I'm hoping Ben will have some I can purchase when his season is over. It sound like these will work and for the cost of $220 per dozen may be the best deal going.

    Thanks for all the information guys. If anyone is selling any DSD let me know.
