I've got a problem with a transmitter and have been trying to talk to someone for about 2 wks. They don't answer the phone and don't return calls. Has anyone been able to speak to them recently?

Several threads going on this, I'm in the same boat as you two. Several, several calls, no live person contact and not a single returned phone call or e-mail.. In my book that equals out of business. At least they could take down their website so folks would know.

I tried calling Hawx and the same peoples voice was on the voice mails, Gary and Reed of BB, and never got live bodies. Hawx website said they are no longer shipping until they get financial backing.Hmmmmm!

Surely they can get some other company to take over. There's obviously a demand for their products, replacement parts, and repair work.

Strange how a company can go under with folks waiting in line for your product.

Sounds like they need to go on that NBC show Shark Tank.

They could have told me that 2 months ago when I tried to order some parts. Surely they had a few anteneas laying around.

It is sad to see a company that has made a good product for many years and still has many loyal customers, not be able to make a success of the business! Many dogs have benefited from being trained with the use of their products and the absence of these products will be missed by pro and amateur trainers.

Speaking of good products Mr. Magee, I just trained today with a friend who has a few of your stickmen. They are wonderful! :cool:

Yes I agree Don't know what I would do without my BB's. Looking to another but not now!

Actually mine would be a 4 shooter add on in good condition, but based on what I'm reading, may need to hang on to for parts?

From the BB website: Bumper Boy will discontinue product line.



Dear Customers

Over the years Bumper Boy has produced a great training product for many of the world's best dogs and trainers. We are sad to say that this great product can no longer be produced by us cost effectively.

As of this time we welcome any enquires to acquire the product line, and the
various US patents.

Collar clinic sells the 3.5 inch tritronics g2 antenna for the g2 transmitter. It works perfect on the old BB electronics.
