What decoys (sex, style) would you prioritize and how many?

I like my Dakota Extreme Jake and a feeder Avian X hen with a breeder Avian X. I run 2 pieces of braided fishing line attached to 2 barrel swivels 4 ft apart on each line. These are attached to the beak and tail of the Jake for movement and ran back to my blind through the window. It's amazing how much the Tom's will get locked in on the movement of the Jake and not even notice the lines ( I've had them trip on them before). And with the posture of the Jake decoy I can turn it a little over 180 degrees to irritate the Tom's. Sometimes their reaction is priceless!! And its not really that much extra to set up

Which dsd decoy should i get? Theres the jake, i think its 3/4 strut with a red head. A jake with a white head and now they have the posturing jake. I will be using it from 1st season to late season if that makes a difference.
