Drake Max4 – Discontinued?

One of the most favorite waterfowl patterns, MAX4 and one of the best clothing manufactures are saying goodbye to each other for good.

With Realtree releasing their new Max5 camo pattern, Drake Waterfowl will be clearing out their remaining stock of Max4 gear, including EST, MST and LST bibs, coats, pullovers, boots, etc.

The bad news is not only for those who love and prefer the pattern, but those who use it strategically in their specific hunting areas.  However, if purchasing Drake gear hasn’t been in your budget you will start to find yourself making purchases

So where might you find these Max4 discontinued closeouts, well for us it will be Wing Supply.  They will be offering some deals in their emails here really soon.

A Breeze might turn to a storm

Drake, the Innovators in Waterfowl Hunting recently released a whole new type of decoy.  Drake’s Breeze-Ryder™ Decoys brings a change in the way your wrap your decoy line and it’s movement in the water.

Each Breeze-Ryder™ Decoy comes with integrated Cord Wrap Cleats allowing you to wrap your decoy line without a keel providing maximum movement.  These molded Cord Wrap Cleats offer durability and strength.  Located at the front and back of the decoy, the Cord Wrap Cleats have built-in Depth Adjuster Cord Locks for quickly adapting to different water depths.Drake-Breeze

The Cord Wrap Cleats are also equipped with Anchor Points providing you with two rigging points.  There are also two other extra Anchor Tabs allowing for rigging your decoys from multiple positions, which creates variable decoy movement.  Change your tabs on different decoys to give your spread a mix in movement.

Drake didn’t forget about the times when a keel is needed, so they introduced a new type.  The Breeze-Ryder™ Twist-Lock Keel is designed for those hunting situations that require a keel.  This cylindrical (circular cylinder) shaped & sand filled keel is unique and provides a hydro-dynamic, minimizing drag & maximizing decoy motion.  Drake-Breeze2The keel attaches to the decoy with a simple twist-lock mechanism which will keep the keel securely in place.

The new Breeze-Ryder™ Mallard Magnums retail for $70 while the keel’s MSRP are $12.00/half dozen.
