    Default Retrieve-R-Trainer O-rings

    Anybody know what size O-rings the Retrieve-R-Trainer uses? I know I can get them pre-packaged from the company or a distributor, but it would be easier and cheaper to get them from the local autoparts shop.

    I'm pretty sure it is the same size as the one for Bumper Boys. There was a thread about those recently so you might try the dreaded search feature.

    Thanks. Searched before posting, just didn't realize that Bumper Boys (what ever they are) would be the same.

    Most farm stores sell a kit Full of different size O rings .I've had my kit for about 10 years and at a guess there is at least a dozen of each size .They range from O rings small enough to use on broad head arrows to well over an inch in diameter. Most of the kits I've seem are red plastic box.I would be willing to bet they will have one to fit and then you will have O rings for every occasion . I dont think the whole kits is over $20.

    Well after I found them they are $32.50 http://www.fastenal.com/web/products...l.ex?sku=99113

    Thanks for all the replies. I bought some at the local O'Reilley autoparts a while back and they turned out to be a bit small. I'll try an 11.

    I'd suggest just carrying your launcher right into the store and match it up. I do this sort of thing all the time at our local Ace Hardware.

    Good luck, Chris

    I agree. That is the best thing to do.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    If I can pull it off in Illinois, it should be a breeze to do in Texas!
