Ratings & Reviews
Full-sized foam filled mallards.
by Tallahassee Frank
Obviously, the season hasn't opened yet, so the decoys haven't even hit the water yet. What I've seen so far is what I believe to be a well made decoy with a very Realistic paint job. Based upon past experience with Higdon foam filled decoys I expect them to be durable, with durable paint, that the ducks really seem to like. I am a huge fan of the Higdon foam filled decoys, and am in the process of replacing at attrition my roughly 500 decoys, with Higdon foam filled. Generally speaking, I consider the inclusion of several poses a real plus.The only thing negative I have to say about the product is the inclusion of one sleeper. In my experience if you are going to use sleepers, you need at least 8-12. One sleeper doesn't do much for you.
Good looking dekes but paint chipping concerns
from Macks PW. Both sets of decoys look great with the exception of some paint chipping on 10 of the 24 dekes. I contacted Higdon, and they sent me a new set of mallards. The new dekes arrived, and again, there was some paint chipping, but very minor this time.If I had a recommendation for both Higdon and Macks PW, it would be to ditch UPS. When the boxes arrived, they looked like they had been treated poorly, one of the boxes even had a fist sized hole in the side. I am hoping the chipping was due to their extremely poor treatment in shipping rather than the paint Higdon uses. I give them a 4 star because Higdon at least sent me the one set for free which I feel is great from a customer service perspective.I am going to look into some decoy paint and see how they hold up next season. Would be happy to review them again, or revise this review after I have had a chance to use them.
