: TT sport Combo or Sport Basic?

Do you really need the extra 10 levels on the combo for the extra $60.
I found a reconditioned TT basic for $200. I can't find a reconditioned TT combo so it would be $260 from gundog supply or anywhere else I believe.

Any insight?

thanks !

I have the basic and it has done a fine job for me.

The basic will work out just fine.

Well, collar clinic ran out of reconditioned sport basics sometime between last sunday and thursday so I ebayed a brand new one for $205. The pro I'm training with said it would be fine too.

Bought the basic 3 yrs ago-- at first i thought it was a cheapo and mwould not last BUT it has done very well and is easy to use- my only problem is it is hard to turn on/off my button really needs a sharp stick to activate the collar.

I have the basic as well. So far so good. It's been trouble free and our pup responds to it very well. Save that extra $ for something else.

What levels do you guys run yours at for nicks....Abby responds to 2 really well, no yelp but a nice correction. I have even used 1.5 and had it work....

Seems like mine needs to be on three for pup-He has pretty thick fur.

Personally, I keep it on 3 1/2, but haven't had to nick her for a several weeks now. She responds to the audible buzz very well lately.
