    Avery still hasn't figured out that the key to getting paint to stick to a plastic decoy is to completely get the mold release agent off of the decoy.:doh

    I have a few dozen of the newbold cacklers and lessers. The paint durability is not terrible, but not great either. I did some custom painting and airbrushing to them all and did more feather highlights. I coat all of them with Clear coat flat and bag them in plastic bags and 12 slots. After many hunts this season most did real well and have had few paint issues. I personally think the clear coating help a bunch. But thats just my opinion.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I'm gonna hold off and get something different. For another $50-$150 I can use my discounts and get either tanglefree, bigfoots or avian x.

    May want too check out DOA's. Have no experience with the others mentioned. Seen the misgivings of Avery products though. Really pleased with the DOA's.

    Give it a rest flamer... Your right, the only decoy that looks like a goose is a DSD. I agree.:bow
