which e collar?

11 posts in this topic

anybody else get the Tri Tronic 40th anniversary card in the mail? They are offering 40% off on a new collar if you send in your old collar. I have an old field 70 that I like but have considered getting a unit that is a bit smaller and lighter. Do you guys that have the small walkie talkie style transmitters like them as well as the old "flashlight" style that I currently have. I kind of like the old style as it fits in the holder on my game vest and is easy to find the button without haveing to look for it. Also am not sure if I would like having the new smaller model that hangs around your neck. Just looking for some feed back on the other style of transmitter

It would be a nice up grade. They have improved a lot since you got yours. The nicest feature for your dog is the "tone". Teach your dog that and you can stop Zap'm them.

The locator tone is indeed a nice feature. Has almost eliminated the need to nick my dogs. I have a Dogtra and it really is a great collar. Like you, I first thought having the transmitter hanging around my neck would be a pain, but it really isn't a big deal at all. I'd say you have the opportunity for a very nice upgrade.

Gadgetman,

If you are not going to use that 40% off card, please send it my way wink

I have the G2 model today and instead of having it hang around my neck, I bought a holder that has a clip so I attach it to a belt loop on my pants. Works pretty decent.

I won't own another Tritronics. I had repeated issues with the ones that I owned. Switched to Dogtra and never looked back. I have run a two dog system and it has worked flawlessly for 3 years. Its used year round and I still haven't had to swap out the rechargeable batteries.

Just ordered a TT Upland Special G2 EXP today. I've been a loyal TT owner for many years.

I currently own TT and Dogtra and would recommend both.

Gadget - a 40% off coupon would make the decision quite easy, IMO, as long as it wasn't from INNOTEK!

I had a 13 year old Field 70(called the Judge) that I sent in this morning. It was still working fine just too bulky. Ordered a new Pro 100 Exp, paid less than I paid 13 years ago for the other one. Can't beat that deal!

Personally I think Dogtras are the best on the market. Check them out!

Thanks for the input guys. I am NOT looking to trade to a different manufacturer of collars, I like my TT just fine. I was just wondering if people liked the small transmitter as I am used to the larger unit that I have had for 8 years. They are offering me a pretty good discount on a new model and I guesss that I will have to take them up on their offer

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
