Now these do look good.

    Recommended Posts

    They do look good and very similar to some I made myself. I used the flexible electric wire cable pull throughs, in fact two of them taped together to give the necessary strength. Always my luck when I can go shoot, there isn't a breath of wind. :-(

    Something doesn't seem quite right here!! Anybody got these and where am I going wrong ? They seem straight forward enough, but every way I put them together they still end up sideways or upside down. And on the advert they guarantee they won't ?

    hello, i just looked on their web site , how do the poles fit into the tube thingy ? i see they are made of fibre glass ? from looking at the video the decoys seem to keep hold, have a look on robert griffins video, sports and sporting .co.uk has a different type of cradle with a thumb screw.

    Hi OP. The pole that goes into the decoy has a press stud which does fasten it securely. I've just gone back in the garage to have another look to see if I can fathom it out, and I think I have it figured!! The male end of the pole with the press stud, is aligned incorrectly. And that goes for both sets. So I'm not very impressed to be honest

    hello, Delwint, is there any way you can solve this ? if not i would be getting on to the seller and maybe they can send 2 new male ends that a correctly aligned, i see you can send an message via the web site if it was D J DECOYS 01942 518452

    I will ring them tomorrow mate. And as the the ends are crimped onto the rods. Then it will have to be two new poles as far as I can see, and yes they were from D J Decoys

    Penelope, I can only agree with you, even though Gwyn is on holiday I've sent him some pictures and he said there was a problem with the manufacturing. Full new set is in the post!! So credit where credit is due on customer service

    If there was a "problem with the manufacturing" does that suggest a lot are like yours?

     

    Has anyone else complained?

     

    How come nobody at the suppliers noticed?

    That I do not know, the young girl in the office spoke to me and asked me to send her my details, so they could put a new pair in the post today. I asked did Gwyn think they were faulty and she said yes there was a manufacturing problem. When I receive the new ones I'll post a comparison picture

    Mine have arrived today, so I'll see if they are from the same batch when I get home.

     

    Of course, it's Gwyn not Glynn.
