Bought some Flambeau Widgeon and Pintail decoys. They look great but does the paint hold up or not? Read several forum posts on different sites and have heard so many pros and cons regarding this. The UV paint they use is supposed to provide great visibility, that is the pro but the con is that the paint does not hold up. I have some old aqua keel Flambeau decoys and the paint on those held up really well. What I liked about the aqua keel decoys is that they were great for walk in hunts because they are light weight and move well with a jerk string. They even used to repaint the old Flambeau decoys if you mailed them in. So what about the new paint, does it hold up or not?
