    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.

    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?

    Light, goes a long way with green loads. May come apart sooner than others.

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

    I haven't used this yet, and the design is very different from the older versions I have had and used. That said, I like the metal collar and metal tube a lot. The plastic body is fairly large and light, which may decrease the distance it can be shot from a Retriev-r-Trainer. The non-use is the only reason I haven't been able to rate it higher. The red, yellow and green boxes of blanks I have used before, and they are great. Once in awhile you may find a dud, but store them carefully, and that shouldn't be a major problem.

    It is lighter in weight than the other ones, which decreases its accuracy. So far it is holding up alright.

    Harder to locate than the white one, which makes for some good training. She works harder to mark this one as it goes down.

    I really like this dummy for two reasons: 1) it shoots a "mile" (seems like it...more like 250-300'), and, 2) being red I can find it easier in the rare case when the dog can't because we see red, dogs see gray.

    My rating is pretty much the same as for the white plastic dummy launcher. The new aluminum barrel tube is a real improvement over the old steel ones. They don't rust, and seem to be more durable. The red plastic part of the dummy seems to still overcompress, and starts coming apart sooner than I believe it should. Nevertheless, I've been using the retriever trainer and dummies since about 1972, and these are significantly better than any that have come before.
