Lucky Duck - pull string
« on: October 02, 2017, 06:33:28 AM »
These must be new on the market; I can't find any reviews.  Sounds like a good concept if they work.  Just ordered one so we will see.

We have something similar, same concept. Best thing I've bought. We put ours on a 10x10 floating base, anchor it with a downrigger ball and use it in the spread.
Is it waterfowl season yet..............

CP, we must be thinking alike.  I just received a flocked Decoy Dancer pull string.

I have an Aero Outdoors version that Paul Sullivan designed.  It works great.  It is pretty old but in good shape.  I take really good care of it.

Doesn't look like it would be easy to fix in the field if you needed to.  The Whipsplash and Knotty duck are easy to replace bands if need be in the field.

Decoy Dancer Whipsplash is my favorite. I haven't tried this lucky duck but for what they are charging I'm a little worried about how well they work. I guess I will wait for a review though.

Whipsplash is my favorite.  Had 6 of them.  Purchased two more in the off season.  I ran the knotty duck for a while as well, but like the functionality of the Whipsplash better.  The only one I didn't like and wouldn't recommend was the Flutter-Wing by Aero.  It seemed this one was very loud and always had problems.  It was a pain to fix or work on in the field.  Only thing I did like about it was the full body option.

I did not like the knotty duck personally. I think the whipsplash is a better overall product. I have one, but rarely use it. I have two flutter-wings- and they do kind of suck...But... I have completely rebuilt them, and modified them to my needs, and I actually prefer them over the others now. I wouldn't recommend buying one- cause what you get from aero is sub par.
Get a whipsplash.
Winter is coming.

I've been using my knotty duck for about 7 or 8 years and it's been great for me.

I just about bought one, interested to see how they work.  I have a homemade version that works fine, just another thing to haul in, setup and pull on so it doesn't get used often.  I did like the price, $150 for the competitors seemed crazy expensive to me.

For my homemade version, I used some old braid fishing line on a fishing reel.  That makes it a bunch easier to deploy and put away as well as having a ton of line so I could run it wherever I wanted.  I also rigged a pvc 90 degree elbow on the pole so the cord leaves the decoy straight down and then under water so it doesn't show when you pull.

 The whip-splash by decoy dancer is my go to spinner. It seems every homemade version ive tried to come up with or have seen other guys use. You spend more time out in the spread messing with the homemade spinner vs actually hunting. No thanks  I will take the Whip Splash  any day,  they look great, many species to choose from and easy to repair the band in the field if needed.

Funny you should talk about time out in the spread adjusting the spinner.  I made one last year and had the wings fall off even before I could get back to the blind.  Decided the 2.0 version should have better attached wings.
