Product Description

Flambeau Storm Front Classic Pintail Duck Decoys - 6 Pack
The storm continues with the Flambeau Outdoors Storm Front Decoys with the launch of the new Pintail Decoys. Carved by World Champion carver, Tom Christie, Storm Front now holds the most realistic pintail decoys on the market. Each 6-pack includes two amazing life-like sculptures. An Active Drake and Relaxed Hen. The Active Drake and Relaxed Hen both boast a premium size spanning 19.5 inches (Active Drake) and 15 inch (Relaxed Hen) in length.

Storm Front Pintails feature an innovative keel design including center tie points allowing added motion on light wind days. A depth adjusting eyelet also allows hunters to change water depths without excess decoy line, while a secure strap weight location eliminates tangling of line. The paint schemes were developed utilizing patented UVision Technology matching the reflectance of real feathers in the full range of light visible to waterfowl, including ultraviolet. Also, a new proprietary polymer blend yields a hard, tough battleship feel and unsurpassed paint adhesion and durability ready for years of use.

Decoys are packed 6 to a box. 4-drakes and 2-hens for a total 6 pack.

Product Specifications
UVision color Technology
Flambeau has formed an exclusive partnership with Twilight Labs, Inc. to utilize the patent pending UVision coating technology. UVision matches the reflectance of feathers in the full range of light visible to birds, including ultraviolet (UV). Flambeau decoys are now available with colors that look correct to the birds.

Humans have 3 cones in their eyes and see the 3 primary sight colors. Humans see 3 primary colors. All color visible to humans are blends and combinations of these three colors. Deer and mammals see 2 primary colors (green and blue) and blends and combinations of the 2 colors. Blaze orange is worn by deer hunters because deer cannot distinguish this color from other woodland colors. Birds have 4 cones in their eyes and see the 3 primary sight colors and a 4th element-UV.

Birds see 4 primary colors. All color visible to birds are blends and combinations of these 4 colors. Humans cannot see this 4th color (UV) as we do not have the 4th cone in our eyes. Birds see the same 3 colors as humans see, PLUS an additional color in the UV spectrum. Current decoy colors do not appear real to birds because all current decoy paint absorbs UV light while real bird feathers reflect UV light.

Waterfowl's fourth cone provide them an advantage over hunters as they have learned to associate a threat response with incorrectly colored decoys. UVision is the first paint technology that exactly matches the UV reflectance, (invisible to humans), of decoys to real birds, so that incoming birds can no longer tell the difference between a Flambeau decoy and a live bird.

Real bird feathers reflect UV. UV scans of a real Mallard and Canada Goose shows key feather areas that reflect UV light. UV is highly reflective in the lighter colors (white, creme, beige, and light gray).

UVision paint reflects UV light in the proper ratio just like real bird feathers. UV scans of a decoy painted with standard paint and one painted with UVision paint. Every color has an exact UV reflectance signature. The decoy painted with UVision paint reflects Ultraviolet light in the correct areas while the standard paint absorbs UV light. With UVision, each decoy color is perfectly matched to the proper level of UV reflectance of a real bird.

Paint chips easily
Quality
How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
Paint chips too easily, even after getting a double coat of clear matte spray paint. I love the keel though and they move well in a light wind. If you like reprinting decoys then these will be just fine.

Customer Comments
"Mack's is awesome, my husband is the one who introduced me to it. He's a big duck & goose hunter and buys all his decoys from Mack's, along with most of of his hunting equipment. The online shopping is convenient and they have a great selection." March 2014
