New Avian-X® Foam-Filled Duck Decoys end worries over wayward pellets

Port Clinton, OH (September 2018) – Molded plastic decoys helped usher in our modern era of waterfowl hunting. In addition to making decoys more affordable, the hollow, lightweight designs also allowed hunters to carry more decoys into the field. Unfortunately, durability suffered as plastic decoys are prone to all manner of damage including cracking, scuffs and chipped paint. Unlike solid cork decoys, a single wayward shot pellet can end a hollow plastic decoy’s career.

Avian-X pioneered solutions to most of the shortcomings of the hollow plastic decoy through the use of a rubberized molding compound that is softer, more durable, more forgiving and holds paint better than the harder plastics commonly used on other decoys. These decoys are available in a variety of natural waterfowl poses created by world champion carvers like Rick Johansen and a complete range of available waterfowl species featuring the most-realistic and detailed paint schemes in the industry. It’s easy to see why Avian-X decoys have become the first choice of waterfowl hunters throughout North America and Europe. Now, the evolution of the modern floating duck decoy is complete, as the waterfowl junkies at Avian-X introduce foam-filled options to select Topflight floating duck decoy models in 2018.

Available as an option on Topflight Canvasbacks, Blue Bills, Redheads, Open Water Sleeper Packs, Fusion Mallard Packs and new-for-2018 Oversized Mallards and Oversized Black Ducks, Avian-X’s new foam-filled technology creates decoys that will ride out the storm – whether it’s raining water or raining steel. Core-Loc™ Technology fills every cavity inside the decoy – tail to body to head – with premium, marine-grade foam. The process seals the interior to create improved buoyancy, greatly enhanced stability and unsinkable performance. These resilient, worry-free decoys will keep on floating and attracting ducks with lifelike Avian-X realism, movement and attention to detail.
