Full Curl Floating Duck Decoys

Paul Sullivan, chief guide/owner of the Burbank Guide Service, has designed another winner! After seeing the increased results with custom goose decoys (DropZones), he decided he wanted a quality duck decoy for Paul’s Ponds.
I wanted a decoy I could use right out of the box,
and have it work every time!  I couldn't find a versatile quality decoy, so I made my own.

Use on the water, water edge or in the field!

True Paint colors - no shine (shine flares birds).
The foam filling the life of the decoy is extended (no more sinking decoys) and the water ride is improved. Plus hollow decoys emit a hollow sound from the slapping waves which can flare birds. (Foam reduces the hollow echo sound.)

Varying the swivel heads adds extra realism to your spread.
The feeder also looks great as a preening decoy!

Look of Cork: Textured surface has the same look- eliminates the shinny paint/plastic finish found on there decoys.

Flocking: Reflects light like real feathers! Black/white on tail can bee seen from great distances. The green on the head is a mixed color and hand airbrushed/shaded (painted) for extra realism.
Success: Late season wary ducks respond to true realism. .Full Curls make the critical difference!

Swivel the heads add spread variety. Increase realism.

Swivel Heads add variety & realism to spread

Hen has same head size/shape, as the real duck shown below.
Hen's have smaller heads than Drakes, in real life!

  • Right Look: Great profile for visibility and new textured -no shine paint finish! We have proved that the textured surface is the right finish for true realism in the Elites (goose decoys). Finally the Right Colors and right paint scheme.
  • Right Size:
    Oversized, or Magnum-size of real fat grain-fed Mallards - gets the ducks attention from greater distances.
    Improved visibility increases the decoying effect.
    See in the picture how the size and colors match the real Drakes!
    Up to 21 " long, depending upon the head style. Naturalistic. Hen head is smaller than Drake
    Body width, height and overall bulk is greater than most decoys.
  • Right flock mix: Original 6 pack has 6 different head positions.
    More active head positions adds life to your spread.
  • Right Design: Heads snap on permanently & swivel. (No heads to lose!)
    Adjust the heads for increased realism in the spread.
    By turning the feeding head it will become a preening duck.
    Right Versatility:
    Works great on fast water or quite water. Remove keels for ice & fields.
  • Multi-use Keels:
    Filled keels adds more weight for better ride, especially in rough water. (Remember to fill the keels for ballast!)
    Remove the long lasting rubber plug and fill the chamber with sand (or water fill/empty) to improve the ride on the water.
    Filled keels will also enable the decoy to right itself when tossed into the water.
    The decoy line can be secured on either end of the keel. Additional hole for 'gang' set up.
    The keel also allows for storage of the decoy line. (Wrapping the line round the decoy could damage the paint.)
    Slot in keel for strap weight storage. Do not wrap string around the decoy head.
  • Quality Look. Drakes have flocked shaded GREEN heads and flocked tails (black/white).
    Flocking emulates real feathers. The sharp contrast of the true black and white on the drake is hard to achieve with paint. Flocking last longer than paint.
    Plus the multicolor green flocked heads change colors just like a real duck.
    This eliminates the bright green in sun that does change to appear darker in the shade, like a real drake.
    Plus the flocking offers a no shine surface for added realism.
    The hens are not flocked.
  • Quality Investment: Foam filled will enhance the life of the decoy and eliminate loss of decoys- no more sinking decoys.
    The next generation will thank you! Built to last.

Ducks in a row:

Drake Heads- Up, Rester, Caller & Feeder/Preener
Hen Heads- Booth feeders. Up is not shown.

Quality vs Quantity:
Fewer more realistic decoys are extremely deadly!
Give the ducks a 'new look'.

Especially effective late season on decoy wary ducks.

No other decoy has all the quality look or features of the Full Curl.

Inexpensive decoys quickly loose their impact in the field. They break, parts get lost and most do not have the versatility of removable keels.

You can count on passing these on to the next generation.

Care: Transport in individual heavy duty plastic bags to extend the paint and flocking or in bags with pockets with very smooth surfaces to not abrade the surface of the decoys. Also best to place a HD plastic bag over the heads, when caring in pocketed bags or ponchos.
For long or rough transports make sure the decoys are protected. Do not toss loose in 1 bag. Pick up the decoys after each use. Store in a dark, cool place after they have been cleaned and dried.

Clean: Use mild dish soap diluted to just give a little bubble. Hose off and dip brush in mixture and lightly brush to remove dirt. Dry and store.

Decoy Bag: Check out the new Aero Decoy Bags and Poncho. Best to always slip a plastic bag into each pocket to ensure protection for the finish. Protect your investment for success!

Design: All of Paul's efforts have paid off. His attention to detail when working with the carver, assisted in bringing another successful decoy to the market. Paul has insisted upon getting the decoy and finish just right. He had perfected the texture finish on the Elites, and is using the similar process on the new Full CURL Decoys.

Measurements are taken with the Feeder head on the decoys: Longest of the decoy styles

Drake tip of tail to tip of nose is 19" Drake Body: 5" high x 7" wide
Hen: tip of tail to tip of nose is 21" Hen Body: 5" high x 7" wide
Both Bodies (Hen and Drake) are approx. 15 1/2 " long

Note: Most other decoy manufacturers measure from the tip of tail to tip of bill, or just from tip of tail to front of body.  Standard decoys are smaller than the body of our decoys, plus they do not have the strong profile of the Full Curls.

Aero's carver did an excellent job of rendering an exact reproduction of ducks, on the two decoy bodies (hen & drake). All of the poses were meticulous reproduced from actual photos and measurements of real ducks. He is an award winning carver, but has chosen to remain anonymous.
