Bigfoot Mallard floater decoys.....

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have any first hand experience with them?

They look good, but last year(first year out), I've seen where the keels were cracking, some paint issues... .

I need to update, but don't want to buy problems either.

had a buddy give em a go and the keels broke and the paint falls off like the GHG hot buys, however he sent them back and recieved free decoys to replace them, I would think this year would be the same because its a new decoy from them and they probably need some major complaining before they change them, some guys will just throw something away and go buy replacements and not even tell the company there product is sheat.

I would look into herturs (sp) 007 mallard decoys really good company and thier products stand up really well.

If it was me replacing my spread I would buy G/H M4M

G&H M4M's are the way to go, not cheap but also the best decoy on the market in my mind.

I agree on the G&H's, just looking at getting something different.

I know someone that bought Higdon super mags this year, have to see how they hold up.

G and H are by far the best for paint and durability. They may not look as realistic as the GHG's or Bigfoots and do cost more, but they are one of the most durable decoys on the market.

If you're like me, floater decoys always seem to get banged around in the bottom of a small duck boat no matter how careful you are. You might as well buy the decoys that aren't going to chip or crack IMO. My G and H decoys run the abuse gauntlet every year and still look great after several years of use. I even have some standards of my dad's from the early 90's and besides a few scrapes the paint is still in impeccable condition considering the years of use. Might as well spend the money on the decoys themselves rather than a $50 dollar slotted bag to protect them.

That being said, I really like the appearance of the bigfoot floaters and the paint seems tougher than the GHG's. Might pickup a half dozen to try out this year, although they do seem a little flimsy especially in regards to the keels. just my two cents, good luck with your decision.

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
