I am looking into getting a launcher and want to get some of your opinions. I am looking at the bumper boy bango and the slinger rc. I am training my own dog and I cant spend 600.00 + for a launcher. I like the slinger b/c you can throw bumpers foam birds etc. but dont really know alot about any.

Bumper Boys are fine. I have both them and wingers. Recognize that it's beneficial to throw ducks sometimes and you can't do that with a Bumper Boy. Each, (Bumper Boys and wingers) have their place in training. You don't want the Bango, though. It has to be close enough for you to shoot. That pretty well limits you to very short marks.
