Hi guys!

I am looking at either the Sportdog brand or the Avery brand of canvas bumpers. Any reviews on these two? Which would you suggest and why?

I went with the flagman canvas bumpers. They are half black and half white with streamers. I mostly use them in the winter time and they show up against most backgrounds. I use canvas in the winter since it won't break like the plastic ones trend to do at 0 or less.

the two I had in the past did not last. Weak plastic bag full of sand for ballast that broke and leaked out so now I only use for blind work.

just bought some avery canvas bumpers. like them so far. i like the weight of the smaller ones. just wish the larger ones were alittle heavier as well to help with throwing.
