I'm thinking about getting this one from gundogsupply. It seems to have some good reviews on there, but I usually look for experience from hpa folks. I want to get on that has dial click for the adjustments so i dont have to look at it when i'm training.
Did you purchase the Sport Pro? If yes, how do you like it? I just ordered one.

Eh...wot?

If you have multiple dogs and are looking for ease of use, I recommend the Garmin Pro 70. I have a Garmin Delta XC and like it, but it is difficult to toggle between the dogs when you are in the field. I run 3 dogs at the same time. I purchased the Pro 70 this season and am very happy with my choice. It can be used for up to 6 dogs. I like it because I don't have to push buttons to switch between dogs. I can control all 3 dogs just from the face of the transmitter. The beacon light is very bright and the built-in bark collar is great, too.

Very nice point coffe dogs. Sport Pro can only do 3 dogs, and you'd have to toggle. I only have the one dog so this is fine by me.

It took me six or seven months before I started using the Sport Pro. I have never used an electronic collar in thirty-plus years of training hunting labs and was worried about possibly ruining the two years of training I have with my current lab.

I read a bunch on it's proper use and I didn't need to worry, it's a great tool and I love it.

Eh...wot?
