I went training with Ken today with the new bb bumpers...I was planning to order a couple of four shooters but no way in hell I would now. Those bumpers are worthless pos!!
ugh..... Not what I wanted to hear. We were just shopping these, as we are getting back in the HT game. I was wanting to get 3 BB units so we could continue working our dog when she returns from training. May need to reconsider
First of all it cheaply made, real light weight. We used four shooters for one of the marks, on a slightly 15-20 mph wind. We ran 4 different dogs on this same mark, all got different throw..ranging from 15 yds infront to right by gunner to right behind gunner. Bumper shoots out 50 yds up in the air then sail like kite to wherever but the same spot. Totally pissed me off to see stupid throw like that. They need to go back to the old style bumpers if they care and I would pay extra for that if that's why they cutting cost and go cheap.
If you go to my post of 5/13/13. 4:07 p.m., I posted a picture of the new bumper and a similar bumper from Gundog supply. The black tape and streamers are not included. I put those on in an effort to make them more visible.
Attachment 13343Is this the standard BB bumpers?
Yes, that's look like the old standard bumper, new one is all canvas and shorter. Ken post a picture of the new one on page 2 of this thread.
I saw the ones Ken posted, and dont want any part of those. I just wanted to be sure I had an idea of what the standard bumper was!
