    Default TT Pro 100 exp vs Pro 500 exp

    To those of you that use the 500, are you switching from continuous to momentary (or Vice-versa)
    Are you making use of this feature?

    Yes. I have dogs of different ages with different training needs. I switch accordingly.

    Yes,

    I love the Pro 500 G2 Exp

    I use the continuous very, very rarely, but when I want it, I like to have it.

    I use the "nick" 99% of the time.

    No, but I have been training dogs for a long time now hence I feel comfortable using the collar. I recommend the 200 to clients and new collar users.

    Nick = a short tap on the button, burn is burn...

    no need to spend extra for the 500.

    Frankly,

    I'm pretty sure I could do what I'm doing with either the 100 or the 200. If I had to pick, I'd take the 500. My personal second choice would be the 200.

    I'm told that it is humanly impossible to hit and release the button on continous as rapidly as the TT collars deliver a "nick" when used in intermittent mode.

    I'm pretty sure that judicious use of the collar with proper conditioning and timing is more important than the duration of a "nick"....

    All three are pretty darn nice pieces of equipment.

    OK I'll play. I own both a 100 and a 500 and can't remember when if ever the last time that I hit the nick button on either (the 100 DOES nick BTW). I'm a self confessed cookie, but when I DO decide to whack them I want the message to be crystal clear. Truth is that the first collar was the 100 and the 500 came along a lot later but even given that, I still think the 100 is a better collar - especially for an uncoordinated white boy like me. Truth is that very few can possibly measure out electricity as precisely as the nick function, but....... even fewer can make the decision as to what the dose should be in the amount of time allotted.

    Yas just don't hold the button down as long regards

    With ya on both points Chris.

    I believe I was told by either TT or one of their dealers that you can't actually "nick" with the continuous button.

    And I was taught by my training group that if you're going to use it, use it, if not, stay off the button all together.

    As with everything aspect of training, there are very few absolutes and a whole lot of personal preferences.

    Ours happens to be for continuous with manual control.
