    What captainjack said. I've never understood why they started requiring sire and dam be in the drop down menu rather than just allowing them to be typed in as in the past. I've never received an...

    Let me know when you're heading up. I usually carry a few dozen on the truck, but I want to make sure I have them when you're here -- or you can stop by and visit with Karen, Megan and me --- and see...

    I don't have any I want to sell, but those certainly were great bumpers. I've still got maybe a dozen or two. I recall calling the owner maybe 5 years ago. He'd just gotten out of the hospital after...

    Off topic, but I've been up only a couple of minutes this morning, read this still not fully awake, and thought," I didn't know Ed was a vegetarian." Then I re-read it. Otherwise, good information....

    No, I am not, but that gives me another idea. I typically think of wingers because I train on marks almost exclusively with ducks (you can throw bumpers with them, too), but your question reminded me...

    Welcome, Fanit! The only solution I have for the first question you ask, is to buy wingers. I recommend from www.SlingerWinger.com and the electronics that make them launch. I can't immediately...

    I've got a 550. Also have a 500 and that's my go-to collar. I rarely use the 550 mainly because I hate those narrow collars that look like they're intended for a lap dog.

    I love the speed of setup/takedown. One motion and it's set to go vs. about 4 steps or more. Time is important to me.

    Totally agree. The servo is a higher quality as I understand it. The plug is also very high quality. In fairness, I think the Zinger's plug is too.

    I've got 7 wingers; 1 Slinger Winger Realistic (the smaller one), 1 Zinger Winger and 5 Gunners Ups. They get used virtually daily. I'll be the first to admit that I don't treat them with kid gloves....
