How is the quality? Does it have every feature you need?
Good movement.I liked the way they performed. We bought 4 before the season opened, and now at season's end only 1 still works. Quality is lacking.
Would you recommend this item?
Yes. However, they should not be left out in the field like other decoys. They should be picked up after each hunt. They require extreme caution in transport and are difficult to carry in number.
Is this item easy to use, or does it require prior knowledge/skill?
Easy to use,but we found that rice stubble will fowl them quickly.
What do you like or dislike about the features?
Strings can be easily fouled by underwater vegetation. They have not held up well to limited use in only one season.
Do you think this item is a good value?
Probably at the sale price if you are willing to put up with the inconvenience of picking them up after each hunt,and you are willing to put up with the problems encountered in transport.
Which flyway do you hunt in?
Does this item have a realistic appearance? Do they float well, stand well?
Good appearance. Some difficulties encountered in very strong wind.
What is the primary use of this item?
The greatest benefit derived from their use is to create movement in the decoys and to create ripples on the water on days when there is very little wind.
Please give your general opinion of this product.
This is an excellent idea; however, there is a problem with the durability of the motors. When they work as they are supposed to they are great.
