Honestly haven't tried them. My mojo works great though. Try one and post up on the evaluation of it. I agree with jerk cords as well. They are a lot cheaper too. If you think this is bad try going to waterdogtv.com. It seems like a clique and unless you can talk the lingo in its purist form forget about response for the most part.

I'd pay good money for a disco dancing duck decoy...:D

Unfortunately for me those decoys would be illegal to use in PA: "Decoys: The use of decoys powered or operated by batteries or any other source of electricity are unlawful for use in Pennsylvania."

Goose Bob..what about those Quiver Magnet H2o's? They wouldn't be considered a decoy, but are battery powered. Just a thought, as I bought a few on sale pretty cheap. Not sure how well they work yet, probably won't know till next season as our lakes and ponds have frozen over.

Damn, Down with the authority!! Try a jerkstring, cheaper and you don't have to worry about batteries dying. ANother trick I used this fall was I grabbed all the small rocks I could and when I saw a flock coming in, I'd throw 3-4 pebblesinto the spread to create ripples, worked every time!!! :D

I'm not sure about those...

Actually, I've never seen a PA game officer on any of the hunts I've been on (mostly private land with permission of the owners)...but it would just be my luck that the first time I'd use a questionable device, they'd haul me away! :D

I have a couple herters quiver mallards I got at a DU banquet. I have used them quite abit and on a calm day they worked pretty well. I have used them early and late with good results. But luckily for me the wind seems to always be blowing where I hunts ducks. Just my $.02

Yeah I guess that probably wouldn't be a fine time to split hairs with your local conservation officer...it's hard enough finding time to get out there, much less spending that time arguing. Was just a thought.

Gilmore-glad to hear that you have had good luck with them. Those things are so little and seem much easier to set up than a jerk cord. There is usually enough wind to do the job but it seems some days it is dead still or just not enough to make the dekes move very well. Thanks for the feedback!

I have a couple of the Quiver Magnet that go into the decoy body.

Don't waist your money...no wait I'll sell them to you cheep...

Jerk string doesn't have to be complicated, works!

If you have a litte $ a Mallard Machine works pretty good too..

Still water, not good..

NO! They are not worth it. Try this: Drive a sturdy stake that just sticks out of the water, and attach two long peices of bungee cord end to end to the stake. Zip tie, or somehow attach the two pieces of bungee cord so that it gives you one long cord. Then tie your jerk cord and decoys to that. You can create quite a commotion, no tangles or pulleys, and it always snaps back!

OK.. I'm gonna let out the tip of the year..

Ever notice how every Robo bounces on the stake..
I attach a string off the tail. on the string is a 4" diameter piece of foam. The string passes thru the foam to a weight 4" below the foam.
The foam needs to be 1/2" below water.
As the robo shacks.. the foam will make the most wonderful ripples.

On a no wind day.. this drives them ducks crazy at first light.

If your robo does shake.. offset the wings a bit.. It will
