Looking for any experiences with the above unit.

I have one and like it a lot. I have three collars and the only negative is that I sometimes forget to check which collar I'm set on before I nick the dog -- not recommended for clarity in training. Having both momentary and continuous options is a real advantage.

I have the Pro 200 G2 EXP and wish I had the 500. Overall, I like both units. Sometimes I'm a little perturbed because they boast a one mile range - but if the dog ducks behind a hill or something the distance is cut much shorter. I guess its the "line of sight" issue that they all have. I like versatility of being able to add collars if ever needed. The 500 is a bit more flexible than the 200 with the continuous stimulation "nicks".

I have the Pro 500 G2 EXP also and I like it a lot! I can also run three collars but don't usually as I do forget which collar I'm on and have nicked the wrong dog a couple of times.....not good!

I have the Pro 200 EXP. I really don't like the toggle switch for choosing what collar you're on. It can get switched to the wrong position fairly easily.

I'll also agree with Sportsman that the toggle switch on the Pro 200 can get flipped inadvertently - a better design would be.....ummmm better ! Overall a pretty good unit. I'm sure the Pro 500 is just as good.
