Our club uses the Tangelo's for our hunt tests and they're super easy to use and launch without a lot of extra moving parts to fail. I've tried calling them recently and gotten a no named voicemail and their website is down and haven't gotten a response from them even though they were just advertising in the last Retriever News.

At one time, the late Bill Woods would talk to you for 30 minutes on the phone before you could get to the ordering. It's a shame Tangelo is now non responsive.

Why and can you prove it?
Why- Our club has tangelos and TrainRites. 10/10 times everyone grabs the TrainRites when training or at tests.

This is why I feel they are better:
  • Release with a safety
  • Ground pins standard
  • Toe down release vs kick up (feet stay planted when shooting a flyer)
  • Powder coat finish
  • More adjustments for distance

Just curious... Do you know what the price difference is?

I do not know what Tangelos sell for. A TrainRite Bird Boy as a manual only model sells for-$480 shipped.

WOW!
That may explain why I've only seen one in the field.

YES Glen,

I know that our club would not consider putting that much into a thrower that takes the abuse of a weekend hunt test. The Tangelo Tosser fills a niche for sure. A functional thrower for a reasonable cost. I really like the Train-Rite and wish we could have 4 at each stake.......but Tangelos and possibly home made wingers are in our future.
