<P>G<FONT face="Times New Roman">uys, I plan to use them only on big open water in longline rigs and I need to know if they ride well over waves. I should've put that in the original post. </FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Times New Roman">As far as the burlap, should I buy them new that way, or just do it myself when I can, maybe during their touch-up painting after the first or second season?&nbsp; </FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Times New Roman"></FONT>&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Times New Roman">Thanks for the help.&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P>so... would ya be better off to buy the hard plastics, or the reg foams and burlap em? Does the burlap serve a purpose other than protecting the foam from damage? Ive only ever hunted over and owned plastic, but would like to upgrade the spread really appreciate the info guys.</P>

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">I would go with the burlap as suggested.&nbsp; Thanks again Ken for those tips on burlapping a year or so ago!&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">When the burlap and tile mastic (or whatever you use on the decoy)&nbsp;cures, it makes the decoy extremely durable and tough.&nbsp; If you can hook up with someone in your area that has some burlapped decoys you will see what I and others are talking about when we refer to how durable a burlapped decoy is.&nbsp; These decoys also show up and ride on&nbsp;the big water very well.&nbsp; </P>
