Higdon XS Pulsator Mallard Drake Duck Decoy. No wind? No problem! No matter the condition, the Higdon XS Pulsator is the ticket to adding portable water motion to your spread. Simply attach a decoy-cord and weight and drop into the water for a quick set-up. Unit has a built-in digital timer that surges a spray of water creating an ultra realistic rocking/feeding motion. Add multiple units to your spread and watch your decoys come to life.

The Higdon XS Pulsator has an internal 12V 3amp lithium ion battery and timer that is built within the decoy housing which eliminates a traditional battery box attachment. Lithium Ion batteries are more durable, smaller and lighter in weight and are longer lasting versus the traditional lead acid batteries. No external battery box means less bulk and less weight.

A single XS Pulsator can fit into most slotted decoy bags for easy transport. Recommended water depth is water as shallow as 6 inches. Runtime: 7hrs. Fast recharge time of 3 hours. An additional battery can be added (sold separately) that will double the battery life.

Package contents: decoy butt with attached 750GPH bilge pump, battery and timer pre-installed within the internal battery box, charger and operating instructions. A percentage of your purchase will go to Ducks Unlimited to help with their efforts for wetland conservation.

After hunting over the new Pulsator XS last season, this is a product that will be hard to hunt without! Try one and you wont be disappointed.

Brings the decoys to life!!

by Hanson Outdoors

I never leave home without a couple pulsators for my spread. These pulsators really bring your decoys to life on a calm day and they are built to last. A must have for the serious waterfowler!

With the addition of the new XS system, this motion decoy yields great results.

Sitting Pretty

by Buffy

The new Higdon XS Pulsator is awesome! I am so glad I don't have to deal with that bulky "water box" anymore!

Mallards take a hit in the Mississippi Flyway.

by Duck River Doug.

I wished I had one of these for every dozen decoys. The Mississippi flyway would never be the same.

Happiness is a heavy strap.

by Coeur d Alene Mary.

This moves so much water it keeps the ducks attention on the set in stead of my husbands call. Our bags at the end of the day are way up.

0-3 - poor design

by Walters

Very effective decoy when they work! Have replaced the batteries and pumps,worked one time out and done. We have given up on them. Less than a year old and none of the three work. With shipping costs to send them back and forth they just aren’t worth it.

Bad bilge

by Pool Master

Bulge pump breaks easily. I own 6 of them.

Don't Buy This

by Dave K

The Higdon Pulsator is a bad product. I bought two after reading a recommendation in American Waterfowler. I used it 5 times in 6 weeks and the (SAE) plug that is used for charging and battery connection corroded and the prong broke off inside of the battery plug. I contacted Higdon and they asked me if I greased the plugs prior to use. Umm, that was not anywhere in the instructions. They wouldn't refund my money or send me new ones. They sent me new battery boxes and new pumps. However, the rechargeable batteries in the old box were sealed inside and the new boxes sent to me did not have batteries. In any event, the whole project involves me totally rebuilding these things and I still don't have all the parts I need. So, Unless you are hunting in a bathtub with distilled water and you disassemble this thing every time you use it to dry it and grease it, I WOULD NOT buy one.

Good when they work

by Simpson

I have this pulsator and two swimmers, bought last season. None of them lasted longer than 3 or 4 uses. Battery box seems to leak and the connections corrode and break off. In addition to all the connections, I have 4 worthless batteries at a cost of $29 each. Higdon says their warranty is 6 months, which is convenient since you put them away and next season is longer than 6 months away until you discover they are junk. and then after that you can ship the decoys to them with $40 and they will rebuild them. I ordered the needed parts for one of them at a cost of $50+ with shipping. I am going to silicone seal the box and worry about cutting it open when needed.. Hopefully that works, otherwise they are good for the short term and you have to rebuild them.

Just use a jerk string

by Joel

Bought 2. Neither lasted 6 hunts. I charged exactly as directions listed. New batteries are $30 each and $10 shipping each. Great design, terrible battery life. Waste of money.

Wouldn’t recommend

by James

Product looked to work great, lacked durability. I wouldn’t have to replace parts or decoys every year, until they redesign this you will have to. Back to a jerk string
