What are peoples experiences on performance ( I have read the sales verbiage ( but keen on what performs best )) of using Full bodied, stackable and sock decoys? Thanks in advance

Never used socks so can't comment. 

Both fully bodied and half shells have there uses on the day. I actually like a mix, depends who's carrying the kit. Not heavy but bulky.

I prefer half shells as I can mount them on spring sticks which adds a bit of movement.

I can also pack around 20 halfs shells in the side pocket of my bergan but can only get about 6 full bodied in the entire bag with other essential kit.

Better to drop a few pigeons and use them as decoys, keep a few in the fridge to start the next session off.

For ease of carrying I would only buy half shells now. The full bodies are good for lofting but take up a lot of room in the kit bag. Dead pigeons make the best decoys. 

In a nutshell ….

I will normally start with my old faithful flocked shells. I will maybe carry 10, if I have a bit of a walk. If I have a long walk, I will probably just take the magnet. I don't use any of my full bodied decoys these days.

between myself and friends must have used most types over the years and come back to dead birds  every time nothing comes close to the real thing breasted out i get ten in the rucksack easy 

Me too, I also have 6 silo-soaks that I can just put in a carrier bag and a pocket full of carts and go for a walk and see if an opertunity arrises. they do work ok in the wind but have to be filled out with grass or straw when its still. :good:
