How does the box launcher compare to the bumper boy launcher for single throws.

There is a newer versio that can throw ducks for 30 ft "Gunners Up Box Style Launcher", per the specs listed

Box launchers don't throw marks, but better release flushing birds! The best box launcher that I've used is the Uplander by Zinger Wiinger. It will throw a bumper a good distance for marks, but most fall short (pardun the pun!)

In my opinion a box launcher throws a mark as close to a hand thrown field trial mark as there is from a winger. The wingers throw way to big . If you want a dog to get what they will see at a trial a box launcher will produce that. The uplander is a great unit and I have some of the 1st ones made. They have been very reliable and have only had remote related failures. They are a very durable unit and small enough that I can carry 4 units to the field and set up a quad myself. They are the way to go IMO
