I use continuous for short amounts of time.

I always use continuous. Just release the button quickly if you want momentary.

At 82 I need almost continuous stimulation! Sometimes it may be necessary to ad a bit of momentary at the proper time also. When you get to 82 you will know exactlly of which I speak. Where is that smiley when I need it? Bill

It you follow TRT by Mike Lardy, he tells you which he uses in specific situations. As I recall, he uses continuous (a one second count) during ecollar conditioning but then switches to momentary when he forces (pile, TT and swimby). After that I would say that it depends on the situation and the dog.

The real question is when to use them and why?

That's the real point, as I see it. They aren't the same. Each type of stimuation has a different character; one sharp & crisp, the other pulsating. Also, 'low, medium, hi' is different on momentary & continuous.

Are you following any certain method or program?

He does in the original series, but in the revised edition he does mention nicking in momentary mode.
