    I have been using the new Avery bumpers and am very happy with them.

    Don't know about the best place to buy bumpers, but do know the best bumpers to buy and the best place to buy them from...at least in the lower 48.

    They are a top quality bumper and I hope that we as retriever enthusiasts will support Avery for all they do for ALL our Venues.

    The newer Avery bumpers work very well in cold temps for me. Dog slobber could freeze on any cold surface.

    Has anyone else noticed that the DTs just aren't the same anymore?

    I love them, still the best choice for winter, but the ones I bought recently are not the same. These "Made in China" ones that I bought last fall are not as soft as the "Made in Korea" ones I bought a couple years ago.

    I wanted to like the N&Bs (made in the USA) and the Averies (they support our sport) but I prefer the DTs. I also like the Dokken 2" bumpers, too bad they don't make them in the 3" size and in better colors.

    MooseMtn, shipping from Gun Dog Supply is free for large orders, only $6ish for small orders, and they carry the N&Bs.

    Also, folks, check Dogs Afield, a site sponsor, to see if they have what you want and at a competitive price. I have had good service from them.
