Your sense of humor isn't wasted...
What I don't understand - and maybe it's because I've been part of an evil giant company that has gone through countless acquisitions - is how people can *LOVE* a product until it's acquired - then whilst the acquisition & stuff is being worked out throw them under the bussssss...
Fact of the matter is Tri-Tronics had a great product, technology and business and Garmin bought them.
The Tri-Tronics "sport" series was discontinued and replaced with the Garmin Delta. No complaints - ZERO - more better technology cheaper.... Now - the pro-control transmitter was BASED off that sport series model (same MFG line) - who in their right mind would have not realized the pro-control as we know it would soon be gone...??
NOW - understanding what's happened don't you think it's relatively certain Garmin will come out with the "next gen" pro control? I know TT had no less than 2 iterations of the pro control transmitter so I'm just waiting for the 3rd gen (which I'm told will be out in the spring).
AND - if anyone is an IC member & didn't know this stuff - well did you ask?? Do you know your TT (Garmin) rep?
Under full disclosure I'm an IC guy - have a great relationship with SEVERAL TT product specialists - have had nothing but good experience with TT service - and am a dealer. Since the Garmin acquisition I've had the SAME experience - I've seen zero degradation in service and have had Garmin go out of their way with a receiver that was out of warranty...
BUT - that's just my opinion - and it prolly ain't worth the $0.02 I was pitching in...
BUT my reaction was:
1) this is funny
(more better technology) nice
A cold nose feels good on a hot day.....

I like most things about the Garmin Delta , EXCEPT that you cannot not change the prongs. They will not get through a huskies coat, I tried , nor some English setter coats. I have clients that have reported back that it was useless on his setter.

On the e collars, I am more of a Luddite. My biggest fear is that the engineers will get all excited about more better technology and tweak the one thing that I ( and most folks) prefer about TT collars--the ability to give low, medium or high without looking at the thing. While it doesn't look cool or use the latest and greatest, the user functionality that is the reason I stick with TT. I just hope that they don't integrate those darn tracer lights. I still have one collar with the thing still on and am always opening the closet on the truck and finding it doing its thing for no reason at all and it takes lots of button pushing to get it to stop.
