Ok Folks, I need some help.

I got an ad in the mail about the new Tritronics G2? that is out or will be coming out. I have a good ol' Flyway special that I would like to upgrade to a new one.

My question, does my Flyway have any trade in value? Who can I contact? What do the new Pro 500's cost? I need a new Pro 500.

Help please.

Contact Collar Clinic about a trade in, OR put it on E Bay. You can likely get a real deal on the Pro500XL if one of them will fill the bill. With the G2 coming out most of the places that sell collars will be having a fire sale on the older types. I would NOT buy the G2 for a while. I'd wait a year to see if they can get the bugs worked out of it.

Collar Clinic? Do you have a web address?

Do the G2's have bugs we haven't heard about? What are they?

By the way, just plugged the Flyway in to get a charge and noticed something strange.

I get a faint continuous blinking on the collar while on charge. Red light stays constant for about 5 seconds then a faint continuous blink starts. Whats up with this?

Monday I mailed my 4 year old Flyway to Tritronics. It would not turn on with a full charge. For $125. they are going to refurbish the unit. Batteries , circuit, antenna etc. They offered to me a trade-in on a G2. I would have had to trade my unit plus $350. for the comprable G2. I decided that I like the bigger transmitter and don't see any advantage of the smaller receiver for my current dogs.

Communicated it all through; Tri Tronics Customer Service. Their made their offer to me when I was requesting a return service number. [email protected]

They will ask you which G2 model you are interested in and quote a tradein price. I said that if they couldn't do any better that I'd just get my current unit redone.

Bob, Do you know about any of these "Fire" sales, I could use one (see my post "FIRE" back a week or so). I need to replace my Pro 500 soon!
I am hesitant about the G2's also :?
Thanks, Tom

Check your local Gander Mountain to see what they have left. I picked up a new Pro 500XL a couple weeks ago on clearance for $186.

I recieved my new 500 pro G2 yesterday from Lion Country. $489 The collar is much smaller. Sure beats the old 500 XL I had no more buttons to change.
