    Default Retriever-R-Trainer + BumperBoy Bumpers

    Does anybody know if BumperBoy bumpers will work on the Retriever-R-Trainer? It is the same type mechanism, but I'm not sure id the shaft diameter is the same.

    No, they won't interchange. BB is smaller diameter.
    Hope this helps,

    Scary - I was just about to ask the same thing.

    Been thinking about picking up a Retriever-R-Trainer to shoot decent marks from the line when I train alone - guess I'll have to buy bumpers to go with it.

    The reason I was asking is that I'm looking at the John Boy launchers and it looks like they incorporate the Retrie-R-Trainer as the launching mechanism. It would've been nice to be able to use the BB bumpers instead of the canvas ones.

    Heard yesterday that Lucky dog launchers are the same size as the BB? Anyone know for a fact?

    Yes, they fit on the shaft.

    I have not fired either bumper from the other launcher.

    Lucky Launchers will fire BB bumpers. Drew straws just yesterday to see who would be first to fire. Throws BB bumper w/ streamer about 1/3 the distance as a normal bumper.
    I'll take the river down to still water and ride a pack of dogs.

    Just read on gundog supply that RRT bumpers are compatible with lucky dog launchers. http://www.gundogsupply.com/rrt-ldl001.html

    So why is it that BB bumpers won't fit the RRT if they fit the LD?

    Hew,

    How this compare distance wise with how far the Bumper Boy throws the bumpers?

    I apologize to everyone. I was wrong on my original post. BB bumpers WILL fit on Retriever trainer launcher.

    Sorry,
    Sean
