Does anybody know if BumperBoy bumpers will work on the Retriever-R-Trainer? It is the same type mechanism, but I'm not sure id the shaft diameter is the same.

The reason I was asking is that I'm looking at the John Boy launchers and it looks like they incorporate the Retrie-R-Trainer as the launching mechanism. It would've been nice to be able to use the BB bumpers instead of the canvas ones.

Heard yesterday that Lucky dog launchers are the same size as the BB? Anyone know for a fact?
Yes, they fit on the shaft.

I have not fired either bumper from the other launcher.

Lucky Launchers will fire BB bumpers. Drew straws just yesterday to see who would be first to fire. Throws BB bumper w/ streamer about 1/3 the distance as a normal bumper.

Hew,

How this compare distance wise with how far the Bumper Boy throws the bumpers?

With red shells, and stock anchored against my thigh, the Lucky Launcher will throw a BumperBoy bumper (w/ streamer) about 40 to 50 yards with a nice arc (45 degree + angle). So to answer your question....about the same distance a BB throws a BB bumper.

I love the BB bumpers and use them often for hand-thrown marks.
