    As a handler the toughest are those in which the honor dog's view of the birds is partially blocked such that they have to move to see the birds go down. When judging, I try to avoid this at all...

    I've seen it both in training and during a HT. As I judge I've always viewed it as whistle interference from another stake and don't penalize the dog. Like Mark and Chris said The Answer seems...

    If I were training I would not run this setup as a triple but rather as a double (1&3), and a single (2) and I'd lengthen the distance of 2 up the hill. As a test, I'd like to see it in person to get...

    While I can understand the 'sticker shock' I'll say this, as an owner of a GunX and one of the old Day's End pistols if I was in the market for a new primer pistol I would spend the money. I realize...

    You can but a kit from Ruff Tough for about $12 if I recall correctly. Drill two holes, install an i-bolt, add a padlock and you are good to go.

    I agree with Mark (did I just type that?). I use it periodically, particularly if I think a dog's hunt pattern during regular marks needs to be improved.

    I own 3 Zinger II's and one SOG. All have been good products but as I often have joked with one of my training partners owning wingers is a love-hate situation. That said, I think the Zinger throws...

    In addition to the points already made factors can change flight to flight at a test (wind direction, establishing of trails and paths, etc.). Lastly, there is room for discretion among judges.
