On the spiders. I sent the one demo we had last year back to Doug at the end on the year so he could make some changes for the 2013 models. I have not seen them since the changes. I know Doug has been building some because he placed another order for tubing last week.
Thanks,seems he is running a little behind......Jim
Its worth the wait.:)
I have never handled a Thunder launcher. I have 4 Bumper boys, 2-2 shooters and 2-4 shooters. I also use their elec to run my wingers. Using the different "launching stations" on one elec receiver, I am able to fire a shot BEFORE the launch, launch the winger, then retire the visible gun marker. Or I can throw 2 launchers off one receiver. I have not upgraded to the newest elec, as I can do everything I need and do not see the need to spend the $$ right now. So I am very happy with my bumper Boys.
I own a bumper boy and have used a thunder many times. Based on my experience you get a more consistent throw with the thunder launcher.
