For years I've watched motion decoys for ducks evolve. I've seen them spin, shake and splash but they just never seemed realistic to me. I came across this motion decoy and would love to hear your feedback on how you think it looks from a realism standpoint. In my opinion, it's simply the most realistic motion I have ever seen from a duck decoy.

Looks cool too bad that price is outrageous. $250 for one decoy. Even the new mom-and-pop shop decoys coming out of places like the SOAB Imitator are well under that price point.

I have a real decoy swimmer and grass gets stuck in the little prop almost constantly...even in mostly open water. The shaker looks cool though.

True. I did have to make slight modifications to keep it weedless. I put a piece of PVC around the prop with mesh wire on both ends.

How does the Hidgon swimmer work for looking realistic. Anyone use one?

I have a spinning wonderduck mallard butt also, but it's a little too noisy for my liking. I keep it off before shooting time so it doesn't scare ducks swimming in my decoys away.

We did. It's too expensive. Drop the price $100 and I'll buy one.

Id still choke over the price. While im nothin close to a big money duck hunter, Id still think retail value should be around $90-$120. Even at $100 I cant see myself ever buying one.

$100 would be great. But even something mass-produced like mojos are $120-$150 their full-sized motorized decoys. Same goes for lucky ducks, higdon, and wonderduck. I can see a startup like this one being a little more expensive, especially since he's not just modifying an existing decoy. I could be wrong but it looks like he created a whole new duck from scratch.
