I have some. They look good but they are paper thin and you have to fill the hole from the mold with hot glue or they will have water in them. I just left the keel off and they ride really good on the water. Got mine for 36 bucks last off season from FT. Thompson.

I have 2 dozen of them. Never had the water issue that bigmac is talking about. I have never put the keels on them. They move a ton on the water, and look just like a duck when sitting on the water. Only issue in my opinion is that the drakes are way too dark. I suspect that it is hard for the ducks overhead to see the decoys down in the timber and brush. They are very light and great for walk-in spots as well. The paint has held up great. I have thrown them in the boat and in the truck bed numerous times, and there is not anywhere that the paint is coming off.

That are very detailed decoys, especially the hens. The drakes are to dark in my opinion. The keels are sand filled and are removable but they break really easy and are very hard to get off when put on. My gf got me a dozen for my bday and they are nice but I won't buy another set. The paint is already runnin off and I have them in a slotted decoy bag. Jus wish they had a stationary weighted keel and the drakes was a Lil but lighter in color

I've never had the water issue either.
I didn't have to fix all of them but about 9 of the dozen didn't have the seal where they fill the hole in the plastic. Hot glue gun and some hot glue and was fixed in about 2 minutes. They are very light and a little on the dark side but I would buy another dozen for what I paid in a heart beat.

They make a real nice distinct sound when somebody tosses them onto ice for sure. And if they catch a stray pellet, better get the spray foam out in a hurry because they will ride like the titanic. But with a little wind or current, they look dang good as far as movement goes.

Awesome dekes. I've had a dozen for a year and keep them in a slotted bag and they are still brand new looking. I just leave the keels off; they move better and the keels on mine are a pain to take off and put on. In fact I broke one of the keels trying to get it off. I just leave them off though. They are awesome when you want to put out a small realistic spread in the late season.

I've been happy with mine and I've had em a couple of years. I took the keels off so they'd be lighter for carrying and they ride nice with just a little breeze. I thought they were a little heavy and didn't move as much as I'd like when the keels were on.
