    Default remote electronics question?

    I am quite excited to put electronics on my new dogs afield tossers. They fire great with they kick release!

    I have heard that the tritronics may have had some line of sight issues. I am drawn to TT due to my current great luck with my g2 exp pro 500. The feature I like most is that TT electronics allow two.devices to fire from one receiver.

    Is the dogtra still more robust for long distance with terrain factors or does the new tt stuff have this worked out?

    Thanks!

    Chris

    Jerry day and Jerry Roellchen, nice work in design! Can not wait!

    I have TT electronics on my winger. I train FT distances and have had no problems with them.

    Cuzin,
    Been using TT remotes a long time and never a problem even at 3-400 yds. One is getting weak and not working well out past 200. Guess it's time to finally break down and replace the batteries. Dont even know how long I've had it but do know it's been years not months.

    Gosh..I hope so...my new winger has TT electronics..I debated between Dogtra and TT..

    No problems yet with some factors in the field. But have not used at huge distances...have used up to 200 yards..longer were hand throwns so we could reload the winger.

    I use Dogtra electronics and my training partner has TT. I like that my Dogtra has rechargeable batteries on the transmitter and receivers. Dogtra has a duck call sound on the receiver to better simulate a hunt test.
    I like that with the TT you can hook up a second device (retired gunner, another winger) to the receiver. With the TT you can operate up to twenty devices with one transmitter, with the Dogtra you can operate six. But, I do not like that the TT transmitter uses a 9volt battery.
    We have only used our equipment up to 250 yards with no troubles.

    We seldom have to replace the 9v battery on the transmitter. We keep a couple of extra ones in the training bag. We never have to worry that will not wave enough juice because we forgot to recharge it.

    Neither Tri-tronics or Dogtra remote launcher radios work worth a da** when it's cold.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Our TT worked well today in the cold. It was 54. Howard thinks that is cold when he is down here
