Which Collar?

14 posts in this topic

In need of a new e-collar before chasing pheasants in a couple weeks. Looking at either Dogtra 280NCP Platinum or TriTronics Sport Basic 3. I like the fact that reciever/transmitter on the Dogtra are both rechargable and it shows charge level, but I have had good luck with TriTronics in the past. Any opinions/history???

Thanks!

I got the TT G3 Sport Basic back in early May when I got my dog. I HAVE NOT had to charge it yet, made it through all of the summer training a 10 hrs/wk and all of early goose, and it's still flashing green (it should last a while even after it starts flashing yellow). I even left it on overnight on accident about a week ago. I also researched a lot and heard nothing but good about TT.

I've used the Dogtra series for a number of years and have had nothing but good luck.

Fairly fool proof & simple to run. A great collar at a good price,wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

I have the G3 and I agree with Fish$Fowl. I can use it for weeks leaving on for extended periods of time.

Dogtra all the way. I have the 2000 T&B going on 3 years now. It gets used almost every day.

I picked up the same collar about a month ago, and am more than happy so far!

I have the tri-tronic SPORT UPLAND G3. Have used it for 1 ½ year and have still not changed the battery on the remote so I don’t think a rechargeable remote will save you much money.

One of the features I really like is turning the beeper on/off with the remote. I find it a bit annoying to listen to the beeper all the time and this makes it possible to turn it on just when you need it to locate the dog. Thee beeper uses a 9v battery, and I actually changed the battery for the first time this weekend.

I use the 2502 T&B and love it. Afriend of mine switched to the Dogtra 2502 T&B from TT and doesn't regret it at all.

I have a G2 sport model and a G3 sport combo. Only compaint that I have is the intensity "roller" dial doesn't have a firm enough "click" between numbers. It tends at times to get moved around with walking through tall thick cover that rubs on the transmitter. A buddy has the same one however and his seems better.

Thanks for all the replies everyone I appreciate the input. I had pretty much made up my mind to go with a Dogtra and after reading the above I won't have any reservations making that purchase.

If you are looking for a great deal. Don't know if I can name the store here but it is the large sporting good catalog/retail store on West 94. Check out the bargin cave in back. Factory refurbished tritronics at big discount, + all dog products in there had an additional 20% off on Wed this week. Unfortunately I had just ordered a new one last week.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
