    Default Neumann and Bennet Bumpers - 2016

    I purchased several dozen bumpers from neumann and bennett in May of 2016. They assured me they would send them out that week. They took my credit card number and charged it to my account. The bumpers never showed up. They don't answer their phone and offer no solutions. What a shame.

    That's a shame!

    Does anyone know if Avery Bumpers are made in the US? I just bought a new load of bumpers from Gun Dog Supply, some Lucky Dog and some Avery Hexabumpers. I received great service from GDS and the bumpers are fine, but the Lucky Dog bumpers all had a "made in china" sticker on them that I had to peel off.

    The Avery bumpers are more expensive, but if they are made here....anyone know?

    These DT Systems Soft-Mouth Trainers are still my favorite, $11.99. I like the ones without the little valve stems...we've all lost a bumper or two from those damn things falling out in the water and sinking to the bottom of the creek. These still have a valve to adjust firmness, its just permanent and cannot fall out like the little plastic ones.

    Unfortunately the "original" DT SMT bumpers are no more! Like so many manufacturers DT moved to a different manufacturer (read less expensive ... Not hearsay direct from the VP sales at the time) and the newer Avery Hexi-bumpers (those with the ASD logo vs the old Avery logo with the cat tails) are the bumpers closest to the OLD SMT's in softness.

    If you ever get your bumpers expect the valves to fall out in short order.

    dispute the charge to your card and go elsewhere. Problem solved.

    Call your credit card and dispute the charges.... They will protect your purchase

    Unless something has changed, basically everything Avery "makes", including the bumpers come from China.
