    Default Son of a Gun Launcher or Zinger Winger II G4 launcher?

    I can't decide between these two products. Any input or experience with either would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Made the choice to go with SOG's . Liked the loading mechanism better for the inexperienced. Also just like the feel better. Both are excellent and you can't go wrong with either. Fun buying new equipment.

    I have the Zinger. I would/will buy another.
    I think it's a Ford vs. Chevy type of thing.

    I have both brands, I prefer the releases on the GUs over the Zingers, they are more fool proof as far as accidentally letting the pouch go while you are loading it. I have a new GU and older Zingers so it may not be a 100% fair comparison. You probably won't be disappointed with either one, don't lose any sleep over it just pick one and go.

    I have 2 S.O.G wingers for 3 years. No problems. Work good. Good company to do business with.

    Same here, own 3 for same period. No problems, just need to keep hardware tightened down. To me it was size, although the Zinger is 2 lbs lighter the SOG is 5 in shorter and 1 in narrower which made a differnce in storage for me. Also agree with the release comments.

    I have 2 SOG's and really like them. Light, compact and easy for me (a lady) to transport. Also easy to load and reload. Important since I train alone a lot. Don't have too much experience with the Zinger.

    It's not rocket science. How hard can it be for the "inexperienced" to figure out what is essentially a giant sling shot?

    It's just Safety 101: Don't stick your arms in the midst of the sling shot. Hopefully folks using rifles and shotguns get this.

    P.S. I have a pair of the Zinger Wingers IIs. They work fine. I have never seen the Gunner's Up versions so I don't know how they compare. But I have never felt that my life or limb were in danger using the Zinger Wingers. Of course, I got common sense.
