A great decoy with unique movement
By: Patrick from Minnesota
How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
I feel the quality is great. Lucky Duck has always sold premium, durable decoys that last for years. Because the Mallard spinners I own have lasted 10+ years, I purchased two Gadwall flappers AND I LOVE THEM!
Would you recommend this item?
Absolutely. Like the previous review stated, this non-Mallard flapping decoy gives a completely different look and color out in the marsh - especially when you're huntnig public land and water.
Is this item easy to use, or does it require prior knowledge/skill?
The decoy is very easy to use
What do you like or dislike about the features?
The new stake/pole system that Lucky Duck started using last year is a great improvement. The stakes/poles used to be square with a thumb screw - now they're round with push buttons. These stakes/poles are lighter then before and I have not had any issues with rust.
Do you think this item is a good value?
For the money, this is a great decoy to add to any spread not only because of the coloring, but because Lucky Duck decoys are durable and the company stands behind their products. A previous reviewer mentioned customer service is not top notch and I couldn't DISAGREE more. I haven't needed to speak with customer service often, but recently I needed to because I broke the fuse holder in one of my Mallard flappers. My situation was handled immediately and a resolution was determined all with one phone call. I will always buy Lucky Duck products because of their customer service!
Which flyway do you hunt in?
Mississippi and Central
Does this item have a realistic appearance? Do they float well, stand well?
The coloring is great - again, the Gadwall flapper decoy gives a uniquie advantage on public ground and water as all other motorized decoys in my area are all Mallards.
What is the primary use of this item?
When hunting public land and water
Please give your general opinion of this product.
I love my Lucky Duck flappers decoys - both Mallard and Gadwall decoys. The are durable and extremely deadly over water
