Looking for everyones input!

Here are our requirments:
1. NOT to be used remotely, we have enough people (with sore arms, elbows, and shoulders!).
2. Throws the farthest and highest dead duck.
3. Also throws a live duck great.
4. Can shoot a .209 primer (pistols keep breaking).
5. Doesn't need stakes.
6. Durabile and rain resistant!
7. Doesn't take a Rocket Scientist to re-load quickly.

Jim my vote goes to the Shur Toss from Jerry Day at Dogs Afield. With the lone exception of not shooting a primer, it fits the rest of your requirements well, and is made of aluminum, and colapses so it is easy to tote and fit in a dog truck.

Go to: www.gunnersup.com.

I just purchased one of the SOG wingers. Full size wingers are also available.

Lots of discussion on these units on RTF. Do a search.

If you are exclusively using it as a manual winger which is I think what you expresed you might want to look at the Tangelo Tosser or the Days End Shur Toss. The Shur Toss has a nice kick release which is safe, whereas the Guns up and the Zinger you have to use a string tied to the release and to my mind would be more prone to accidental release by tripping on it stepping on it etc.
