Thread: Zinger Winger or Gunners Up launcher

  1. #1

    Default Zinger Winger or Gunners Up launcher

    I'm looking at purchasing two launchers here in the near future. I've done my research as to the models I want. I'm looking at the original Gunners Up and the Remote Field Trialer Zinger Winger. I'm looking for some reviews if one is better than the other. They're both comparable in launching distances, etc. I already have electronics to put on them so I just need the launchers themselves. As I said, any reviews, both good and bad would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Do a search. This question has already been discussed at length.

    Having dealt with both, I prefer the Gunners Up because of the release. It's pretty well a toss up, though. Either works fine.

    That was the first thing I did. Unless I'm stupid, which is a possibility, there wasn't a whole lot that came up with keyword searches of Zinger Winger, Gunners Up, and Launcher. If you have links, I'll gladly take them because I couldn't get them to pull up in the searches I ran.

    Interesting, I wouldn't own a GU because of the release.

    If I had the money, I would go with Train-rite

    I think the zinger and GU are comparable. The GU is not as solidly constructed IMO (I own 3) but I do like the release better. Only issue so far is the hinge arms bent on one and I had to buy replacements. the replacements were much stouter than the ones originally installed (SOG model).

    I got the mini Zingers for Christmas and love them. I just didnt have the room to haul around the big ones. The only issue is they dont throw as far. So far, with the Dogtra remote, i have loved them.
