After receiving an email about the 40% trade-in, I'm thinking seriously about upgrading my old TT pro500 series collar. But, after reviewing the specs on-line, I could not readily see any difference between the Pro 100/200 and 500 G2 models??
Anyone have any insight to differences in model capabilities?
Yes, the Pro 100 & Pro 200 differ in that one (can't remember which) has 18 levels of momentary (quick nick) and 6 levels of continuous (stim continues as you hold the button down), while the other model is vice versa ... 18 levels of continuous and 6 levels of nick.
The Pro 500 has 18 levels of each. It is essentially a combination of both collars and you select which you want with a switch on the transmitter.
Might be some other differences too but that's the main thing.

thanks! after reading your post, I realized I must have glossed over those plainly printed
differences on the website in my haste to calculate my trade-in savings.

Pro 100 is 18 continuous/6 nick.

I am curious as to what people tend to prefer - a collar with more 'nick' levels or one with more 'continuous' levels...
I had a pro 200, because I used (and still do) nicks on a much more frequent basis....
I am thinking of upgrading also....but not sure if I want the 200 or 500...

Juli, I use both the continuous and the momentary regularly in training. For me, I think the versitality of the 500 is worth the extra $. But in reality, it probably makes little difference and either the 100 or the 200 would work just as well. I think it's more a matter of when you use the collar rather than if it's a momentary or continuous stimulation. Also, how the dog responds factors into it.

I just went from a Pro 100 to a Pro 500g as I found myself "nicking" more, and wanting a little more range in "nicks."
I currently have a Pro 100 - when I first got into the games I followed the dobb's method when it came to using the collar so the Pro 100 fit that better. As I have grown in the sport my training leans toward the nick mentaility, so the Pro 200 is what I am getting with the trade in. Not to mention my trainer has a Pro 500 but he normally (99%) uses his collar in the nick mode.....so I would say it really depends on your training style/method.
