I will tell you what guys that sure seems like a lot of money compaired to the SportDOG Brand SD-1200. Compairing the two collars SD-1200 and the Sport 80C or Sport 80M ... you get more range, 8 levels of continuous and 8 levels of momemtary, add another dog if needed, better money wise, and a lifetime warranty. That's my two cents worth. Cray can also give you some insight he has used the SD-1200 before. Just some food for thought.
