    Default e collar recommendations

    I would like to hear your e collar recommendations. I currently have a SportDog Wetlandhunter 1825. I dont dislike the collar but I have had some issues with it working properly on a regular basis. What would you recommend for waterfowl hunting & hunt test training. I am open to anything: Tri Tronics, Dogtra, etc. Would like to hear personally experiences.

    I now have the Pro 500. I went through the progression from Classic 70, Flyway to Pro 500. My recommendation is to say yourself some expense in the long run and go to the 500.

    Pro 500...All the brands are good when they're working.

    The TT Pro 500 always works.

    Everything breaks eventually. My Pro 500 transmitter is going back in for repairs for the second time in as many months. Yes, it gets used a lot on a pro truck, but it still broke. Good thing I keep a spare.
    That said, I haven't found anything better. Sure hope that quality and customer service remain high with the transition that Tritronics is going through.

    It takes as long as it takes. Sometimes longer.
