Your BB needs to try out for the Yankee's or something! Seriously I think that may be a bad batch or something as I have never seen this happen. Maybe they can be replaced!

I've never had that a side note I am glad to see I'm not the only one who puts white duck tape around their bodies!

Dogs don't have access to them. They have only been thrown.

That is terrible. Those suckers are expensive. I have had mine for years and never had that issue.

Great minds think alike. White duct tape for marks and orange for blinds.

We use the strip of duct tape after the doken turns dingy and loses its colors which they all do after time.

Having owned several dozen dokens, I have never had a cord break, but I have knocked a few feet off and gotten them stuck up in trees:D

Gun Dog Supply replaced all of them,and I sent the bad ones to them.The new ones are fine....may be just a bad batch.This company has never failed to provide great customer relations.

I like the ones made by remington better, designed by a lady that worked for Dokken
