    Can't take a RED load
    October 12, 2023
    Had 2 blow apart with less than a box of red loads.Red is to much but I love the distance.Almost out of sight on the water
    • Long range with a red load.
    • Red loads blow dummies apart pretty quickly.

    Best Replacement Bumper for RTR
    April 23, 2023
    I bought this to work with my legacy Retriev-R-Trainer. I've had multiple replacement dummies over the years. Some last a several hundred shots but most fall short. I'm so glad I bought this one. This dummy shoots easily 125 plus yards with level 4 blanks. It floats and is made of a very hard rubber. The dogs don't mind the hardess of the rubber at all. It also is shaped well. My vizsla pup has a tendancy to drop traditional bumpers. This is shaped so that if she's not holding it well she'll drop it. This is great as it helps reinforce hold. Great product! I'd highly recommend it.

    Poor product
    September 1, 2022
    I have bought numerous plastic launcher dummies. Your latest description of the dummies indicated a new compound was being used to improve longevity and performance. After 50 shots this is what I am facing when using medium loads.

    Most durable dummy launcher
    June 28, 2022
    In the past I have used the canvas dummies for my launcher but they wear out easy. This new one flies farther and is very durable and hard for the dogs to chew up.
    • Dummy travels farther because it is heavier and more aerodynamic.

    This dummy shoots really far and has the benefit of being compact enough to force the dog to search for it in the landing area.
    • Very durable
    • So small that it's hard for the dog to mark when shot at low angles

    Tougher than any other launcher dummies I've found yet.
    January 20, 2022
    Our dog, Ginger, is a 1 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Labrador Retriever mix that is far from perfect (got her 6 months ago as a rescue with a rough puppy life)). So, she has more hound than retriever in her. I have taught her to retrieve the dummies to some extent (far from any professionally trained retriever), but she does it and loves the game that wears her out so we have some peace in our lives. The problem is that she chews and shakes the dummy while bringing it back to me. Then doesn't always want to just drop it. Probably the Ridgeback in her. But, anyway, this white plastic dummy by Retriev-R-Trainer is a bit more durable than the orange hard foam ones she eventually chews apart. Same with the hard cloth dummies, get ripped apart and fall apart. I use silicone sealer to help them last a bit longer but still doesn't last long.

    So, we have used this new plastic dummy by Retriev-R-Trainer for two weeks now. So far only a couple small tooth holes in it. My guess is it will eventually break apart too but will take her much longer to destroy.

    If you can come up with something even tougher and more indestructible, we would be all for it in our situation with a hound. (Ginger is certainly not a bird dog. Had a lab and 2 weirs that were) We have plenty of groundhogs around, but no game birds that want to get her teeth into it while retrieving!!!
    • - Much stronger and tougher than any other trainer dummies I've tried so far.
    • - Flies farther than the hard cloth dummies, even when starting to get holes in it.
    • - Still potentially able to be destroyed.
    • - Can it come in the color orange? (almost lost it in the snow the other day)

    Poor plastic dummies
    September 15, 2021
    This dummy fell apart after about 50 shots.
    I have bought numerous dummies with the same results.
    The dummy material needs to be improved.

    Longer Launches
    March 30, 2021
    I ordered the red foam and white plastic dummies together with the CCI red blanks. The red foam definitely flies farther than the white plastic dummy. I will be ordering more of these today.
    • Long launches and they appear to be well made and holding up well.

    • Durable, high visibility, great range
    • Goes really far. Make sure you have canvas dummies as well for close work.

    A Good Training Dummy
    September 2, 2020
    This is a quality product and is fairly durable. I've owed three or four of them and only one has been destroyed, and it probably went through 300 or so yellow loads before it blew apart. It flies a long way on a yellow load (100 yards?). I've never used a red load, so I cant comment on those. Flies way, way farther than the canvas dummy
    • Distance and durability seems good.

    Does not go as far as previous round plastic bumpers
    August 20, 2020
    I bought a similar Red Plastic Bumper years ago that flies! It is falling apart so I bought this one. I like the foam feel. Much easier to grip for the dog but the added weight puts it in the same category as the standard canvas bumpers. I would like to order a replacement Plastic Bumper that is light weight and will fly!
    • Better grip for dog. I had to add surgical tape to my original one for the dog to grip.
    • Does not go any further than the canvas bumpers.

    I like the distance I can get with medium loads. I chose red to make retrieve harder to see. It seems to hold duck scent OK. Floats well.

    The durability of the dummy is absolutely great. Flies very well even in strong winds. Easy to see and my dog tracks it very well. However according to my young pup the chew-ability leaves a bit to be desired. I left my dog and she found the dummy, only the really durable metal liner was left. So I ordered 3 more, hopefully they won't be a chew toy. Great product!

    Last one was great! Got lost in the 12 inches of snow! I'll find it in the field before it gets Plowed under! Bought a replacement just in case. Original one was 3 years old. Had a lot of launches with it. Both on land and water! Haven't had time to use the new one. This weekend?

    Flies way out there. The best way for your dog to get those long retrieves is to practice long retrieves.
