    Looking for feedback on which "Zinger Winger" everyone is using.....and the PROS and Cons of each. Also what release system do you prefer Tritronics vs. Dogtra?

    The Mini’s are easier to carry by us short gray-haired guys and they ride nicely on the back of my quad.

    I have all but the hunt tester and like them all but the mini doesn't throw quite big enough for really long marks. I always use it for my flyer station.

    uplander with TT remote for me.
    tosses a good mark and a great flush for upland.

    I had two field trialers and a mini. Traded a friend a field trialer for a mini and bought a third mini. I find the minis easier for me to handle and they fit better in the truck with all the other equioment I carry. I have older Dogtra releases.

    Just picked up 2 Zinger Winger IIs w/dogtra electronics and the dog and I are Happy, Happy, Happy! Love the duck call, throw, and shot! Just fits in the Yukon XL with the back seat flipped forward. Thinking about getting the Uplander next for the third throw and upland work. Working that extra overtime ($$) was worth it!

    I (sadly) sold mine when I moved and now that I'm back it's what I'll be getting. I loved mine. They were reliable, threw a bumper or bird with a nice arc. I could carry 2 at a time if I had to. I don't have any negative feedback on them. I used the Dogtra remotes and was equally satisfied with them.
