I got one last year off a buddy that was tired of his. It looks silly until you put it in some tall grass or in a fence line.  It gives a hint of fan. 

I'm not a big decoy hunter. . .er. . .I mean I'm big, yes.  I hunt with decoys on occasion, but. . . well, you know what I mean.

This past season it did not produce.  However, I also never saw a really jacked-up gobbler all season.  They were tentative to say the least until the last weekend. I did get some action on it a couple of times from curious hens.  When they went edgewise to it, it disappeared on them.  That made them a little nervous, but they circled around a bit, saw the fan again and went back to feeding.

It is not going into the junk bin. It is surely easier to carry than a full-body gobbler deke.  I would not recommend it for hunting public land or anywhere I wasn't sure I was the only hunter around.
