These shells are the best

How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
High quality, from the construction to the paint job.
Would you recommend this item?
Is this item easy to use, or does it require prior knowledge/skill?
Very easy. They work as good or better than full body field decoys. The fact that they stack well means you can take more with you. Oh, and they're lighter than full body decoys too.
What do you like or dislike about the features?
They are simple to use which is great when you're hunting with kids that want to help set up a spread.
Do you think this item is a good value?
I paid $129 for 12 painted pieces of plastic. Honestly I think I should have my head checked. That said, I wouldn't field hunt for mallards without them!
Which flyway do you hunt in?
Central and Mississippi
Does this item have a realistic appearance? Do they float well, stand well?
Yes, great paint job and body positions. They move well in the wind.
What is the primary use of this item?
Field hunting for ducks
Please give your general opinion of this product.
I really like this brand. I had two dozen I hunted with for several seasons and just bought my third dozen. A buddy of mine bought another brand of shells and some full bodies and now wishes he'd have bought dekes like mine instead.
