I sold all my carrylites because the paint came off the first season. The only ones i kept were the supermagnums. Like i tell everybody, When it comes to decoys Spend the money, I bought tons of cheap dekes only to sell them in a couple months. GHG's shells are awesome and the fullbodies. Big foots are good and G and H's are good also, from my experience. Hope this helps.

if you want cheap ($ wise) hit up the bass pro and buy redhead shells, if your not concerned with price go with the GHGs

Like everyone else said, paint is worthless on them. They also seem to have very thing plastic that doesn't stand weather variation very well so they crack easily.

i bought the bulk of my decoys at garage sales and flea markets. usually all it takes is a little touch up paint a some expanding foam and your good to go.

Are you talking canadas or snows. You can use them for snows mixed in your spread. Good way to make a bigger spread without spending to much money. You need a good e-caller though. I wouldn't use them for canadas. JMHO
