I would haft to check and see just what the pricing is. It says $395 with Electronic release. But then I figure you haft to buy the receiver & remote.
I sell the Dogtra Releases, and I would haft to see what they cost. But you buy a remote & Receiver the first time, and then JUST the receiver after that. Your remote will activate 6 winger.
I have 3 wingers, and a Max 5000 with Dogtra Receivers on them, and 1 remote will activate all 4 with room for 2 more.
I like the wingers better than the bumper throwers. You really just get reps off of the throwers, due to they are coming from the same place. The dog sees 6 bumper come form the exact same place, and hit in the same spot, so they are really get to learning the the mark, instead of improving their marking. I don't like the dog running the sae mark 2 times.
But I started off buying a remote/receiver & a winger to start with. Then I bought a second winger when a got a little more money. So, then I could set 2 different MARKS, with different ranges and looks. I would run the dog on 2 singles and then put up the dog. While he was in the create, I would go and move & reload the 2 wingers. Then run the dog on 2 different marks. Some time it means just turning the winger so it threw the duck the oppisite to what I threw the mark before, but it was a change of the look for the dogs. PLUS, when I get off the FF table, I like all my work in the field to be with ducks. So I mainly use my Max 5000 for working younger dogs (before FF).
Let me know if it may be something that you be interested in. I can get you into Dogtra anything cheaper than you can get it else where (Duck Hunting Chat Discount).
Then I am buddies with the guy that is building this new winger, and I know I can save ya $20-$25 right off the top for shipping. Then just add one when you could. Once you worked into 2, you would have unlimited possiblities. Then with 3, youcould really get after it. With mine, I usually set up a short double, followed by a long single. But it is just something that you work at a little at a time (1@ A Time) and in a year or 2 you have the equipment to work all the dogs the rest of you life. Just replace the rubbers @ $20, and the winger are ready for you next dog. cooter
