    Winduks are very quiet and easy to use. Bearings keep them working well. I use them in my Vortex with special adapters that they sell at Winduk. I have used others, but most are really noisy, and flimsy. http://www.winduk.com/

    I really like my wind ducks. I replace he ball bearings every few years and they work like new!

    Take a look at Revolution Waterfowl. Little more spendy I will agree, but you get the body of a decoy vs a silo shape and still ball bearings for the wing spinners. Buddy picked one up, and don’t have much information yet, but I’m thinking of getting one as well.

    What I have found is if you have so much wind a pull string has trouble then a wind spinner isn't of much value.

    I’d say that revolutionary waterfowl has nailed it with their spinners. Bought two in the last couple weeks and they roll with just a slight breeze. Not sure how they will hold up after a season but so far very impressed.

    I'm a big fan of Wind Whacker: https://windwhacker.com/ needs very little wind to move and I've seen plenty of birds dive right into them compared to other "Spinning" Decoys
