Perfect amount of motion for your hunt
by Eric V
Could not be happier. This spasher give the perfect amount of realism. Because it is on a timer the wings spin at intervals so it has the feel of a bird taking off or just stretching its wings. The weight on the wings allow them to always have white side down. I would not hunt with out it.
SPLASH EM AND FLASH EM
The Splashing Flasher has been an incredible decoy of impact for duck hunters. With now the new XS System, this decoy is worth the investment.

This thing works great in the bathtub! Can't wait for season when I try it in my spread. Seems to be made well.
Best of the spinners
Used this last season worked great.With the counter weight you can use it on windy days.A must have for your spread.
Works great with weather not too cold. Tends to freeze a lot with the splashier on below 25 degrees. I have an older model which I removed the splashing part and just use the flasher. It will work under water I have seen it, upside down I guess would be a better description. I even forgot to pick it up one morning and the next morning it was still running about twenty yards from were I put it out. Only one down side, Parts. We need to be able to order the tiny fuses for the inline fuse cable, and the weights for the wings are not available either. Needless to say I had issues with both only because I use it so much. I'm sure you can order wings but the other two items keep it working. I will still get another one, but I hope some one takes note on the parts issue. I don't want to spend 160.00 dollars to replace it just a simple part will be fine. Thanks.
Just Out of the Box

All parts arrived in good order. I was a little surprised at the lack of di-electric grease on all of the connections. Added some leftover di-electric grease to prevent any potential issues. Come on Higdon! It takes a little while to assemble, but the directions sped assembly right along. (Great pictures!) Another potential issue was the wing motor wires were touching the armature for the wing attachment. A few pieces of strategically placed tape solved this issue. I can understand how a few unlucky soles had theirs stop working, shortly after purchase. Wires rubbing on moving parts is simply sloppy assembly and will eventually lead to a short. It is reassuring to know Higdon stands behind their products with a 6-month warranty. Tested it out in the tub, and everything worked flawlessly. Had to drop a star off due to the rubbing wires, but the true test will be this weekend. Sub 30-degree temps, with winds in the high teens. Will update, IF I have any issues.
Spend your money on a better decoy
I have Mojo decoys more six years old that still work fine. This decoy didn't make it through one season before it stopped working. I've had good luck with Higdon's Pulsator decoys; however, their Flasher decoys are complete junk.
Save $$ buy flasher ONLY.

Used for first full season in 2019. Splashing feature failed to pull fliers to with in shooting distance. It did appear to agitate the drakes. Paired with a jerk rig it pulled all swimmers into shooting range. Save your money and only buy the flasher!!!
I have owned Higdon deke's for 20 years as well as the butt feeders for almost 20 years . I bought this piece of junk 4 years ago. It came with the wiring harness broken and the motor was not attached to the internal frame. JB welded the motor in place and Higdon did send me a new harness. This season all the wiring has failed due to cold, both litheum battery wires are broken, now worthless. The harness wires have broken in 2 places. The wiring isn't heavy enough to stand cold weather hunting. I would never buy this again
Good product, slung a wing weight off first day, be sure to check the tightness of them before using. Other than that works good. Ducks work them, more natural look than a constant running Robo .
