Spend the money and buy a Flutter Wing from Aero Outdoors.  Works when it's windy or when it's not and you really need some movement.  besides with a F/W, you can spin it when you need to, and let it sit while the birds are close, the ducks will flare off of a WindDuk when they get close and it's still spinning.

worth every penny.  skip buying your other dekes if that frees up the $$ for you.  Guaranteed this will put more ducks in your face than a few widgeon or pintail decoys.

its not about spending the money. I have very nice decoys, but i am not about to spend over a hundred dollars for one single decoy when i have not seen it in real life or seen the effects of using it. i pretty much just need more coaxing. I am curious about getting one but need more positive feedback before i make that jump. I really do appriciate your guys opinions though. How long have you been using yours for general disarray

2 full seasons.  I understand spending that much on one decoy can make a guy cringe but it's the real deal.  As long as you're hunting water that isn't too deep or rocky to push a stake into the bottom. 

I've got a Winduk, it sits in my garage and hasn't been out in 2 seasons.

Humm, sure would like to take a look at that win duk. if your not using it, would you like to free up some space in the garage? maybe messing with a cheeper version would get me to by the bigger and better deal. I live right on a lake and work right on the straits and would like to see if it works. i would be nice to test it out and see how it works.

We use one, and as long as there is wind to spin the wings, it works great.

I've used a Winduk for years with very good success. Wigeon and pintails seem to like it the best, but mallards come to it, too. I've had ducks land right next to it. The old style sells for about $29.99.

The Winduk has a ball bearing shaft and I find oiling the bearings and shaft, prior to a hunting trip, helps with easier spinning.

i was curious to see if any of you guys have used the reelwings decoys before?  reelwings.com i bought three last year and have been pretty pleased with there results.  if any of you were out in the skagit last year and seen kites up in the air, it was me.  just seeing if anyone else is using them.  a little more effort to put up and only work on pretty windy days, 10mph+ wind, but i always like throwing something different up there than the thousands of wind ducks they see on a daily basis.  last year was a pretty good year for wind an i was able to use them about 75% percent of the time
