Is anyone familiar with these? Seems to me that I saw some in operation at an HRC test a few years ago and they weighed a ton, but did a good job as a launcher. This is, apparently, a much lighter version of the same thing. Instead of a servo and a release mechanism, it uses an electro-magnet and comes with its own electronics. My standard wingers are fine, but I found this interesting. http://www.shop.retrieverspecialists.com/main.sc

Looks like a good set up but I have not seen them in action but I will keep my eyes open now that I know what they are.

I have a few of them they are great you get a very nice throw from them. If they can help a short rib mark think what they will do for you. I may sell my wingers and buy 5 more of them.
