Want recommendations on a tri-tronics collar for training labs. Should i go with the sport or go with the flyway? I used the classic 70 for coonhounds so the bulkiness of the flyway is no big deal to me.

Thank You

Get one with a tube style transmitter. You will eventually end up with a Pro 500, so I would go there first! :D

I have to agree, but the EXP's are really nice 6 dog capable and only around 300.

What he said... The 500 is expandable to 3 dogs too, most only use it as 1 dog at a time.

I would need a map and someone to help keep track of who was who with six.

The classic and trashbreaker which are intended for hounds. I have owned both are for up to 6 dogs. The flyway and upland are for up to 3 dogs.

all the above is good advice. any collar tritronics makes is great. all the rest is just personal preference.

I've had the G3 Sport Basic for about a year and a half and have had no complaints with it. Tritronics make a great product and you cant go wrong with any of them.

The Flyway is a perfect starter collar and I'm still using mine for three dogs now. I've had it for about 7 years with no complaints.

I made the mistake of not asking first and bought the Classic G2EXP with the thought I would need it for multiple dogs in the future like with a pointer & retriever. I have recently learned that it has no momentary or (nick) as trainers call it only continuous if thats how u spell it. But I still use it and it works great just not perfectly suited for retriever training.

A lot of us hardly use momentary. You can simulate a nick with a quick tap of the continuous button. It's not THAT much different that you really need the momentary button. So you should be just fine. I have had some more sensitive dogs, where I will put it on momentary, but in your case, you can just dial down a level and do the simulated nick with the continuous button...
