    What exactly does this mean? (NOTE: It is recommended to permanently attach the heads with PVC glue).

    I have been offered to buy 1 dozen Zink Avian X Painted Decoys for $100 by a local seller new in box. However, I don't understand the warning label that is listed with the product on Cabelas website.

    Do the heads lock on like a Big foot, but are a little loose so you have to use glue or are you just gluing the heads to the decoys with no locking system?


    I can't pass up this offer so I want to know what I am getting myself into.

    Thanks,
    David

    He is selling new decoys in the box for $100.00 that he may have paid alot more for. That in its self is a warning.

    The decoys need to be cleaned and glued for the heads to stay on, also anything but feeders won't stand up in the field as they are not balanced, and the feeders need to be placed on as level of ground as you can find. Level spots in the field are hard to come by.

    Scroll to the bottom. There is four recorded tutrials to fix all your problems. All you need to make your new decoys usable is a cordless drill, pvc primer, pvc glue, a level, 2 or 3 hours of your time, and some patience.

    Oh ya, you need some fishing line to make the legs work. Do you fish?

    that's what I was thinking. He didn't like the decoys so what he hasn't opened he is dumping off on to me. I just wanted to know that for this cheap can I deal with the issues they have.

    $ 100, 2 to 3 hours of my time, and all the other stuff BBW mentioned

    Looks like by the time you are done you will wind up dumping much more than $100 into it.
