    Thumbs up A new kind of bumper?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/10-Pack-EEA-Plas...item4147960b04

    Has anyone tried out these bumpers? I think these are the cheapest ones I've found yet.

    It doesnt say what brand they are, only plastic, Lucky Dog seems to be the preferred brand for staying soft in cold weather, Avery Hexabumpers are nice but dangerous in cold weather ( extremely Hard )
    or try this site http://ezrotational.com/ezr/index.ph...d=18&Itemid=30

    I have about 6 doz of these that are very functional for the price

    Good luck

    $40 for 10 (price + shipping) isn't a bad price, but it isn't the cheapest price.

    http://www.gundogsupply.com/whpacpotrdu.htmlf

    $2.99 each includes rope. Shipping is about $6

    These are softer than some of the others out there.


    DogsAfield has some for about $3.50 if you order a half dozen or more, which will work out to be about the same price as those you found on Ebay.

    I have a dozen of these ones. My shipping was as much as the bumpers, but I am in Canada and it costs a friggin' fortune to get anything shipped up here! The bumpers themselves are ok, not rock hard and not super soft...but the valves are crap! Every valve broke and fell out within 2-3 throws, I was not very impressed

    I mostly use Hexabumpers. A bit more expensive, but my dogs all like them, and I haven't had any break on me yet. When it is below freezing I usually switch to cordura bumpers

    I just got a set in the mail. They are hard plastic with a hole in the end so you can't use them in water. I don't think I'll buy any more.

    the I bumper is the cat's meow. These are tough, rope is embedded into the rubber and they are chew proof.

    My dogs chew the hell out of the soft ones and leave them around the farm and what they dont chew the coyotes do.

    I've seen these in use At Joseph McAnn's and they work great.

    I'm going to move to these in the spring when I stock up on new ones.
