could not make up my mind, but here it is.
i plan on getting me a TT G3 trashbraker here real soon

Great choice with the tritronics. I have a G2 Classic 70 EXP with 5 collars, it's the model before the G3 classic but bassically the same set. Works well and will someday get the last collar. I also have a tritronic sport G3 with 3 collars, had it before I got the G2 Classic 70 until I came across a closeout on the G2 so I grabbed it and used my 3 collars I had for the G3 on the G2 Classic 70 EXP. This gave me one unit with greater distance. I did like the design of the G3 Sport better since it is compact and could be put on a lanyard and tucked in your shirt pocket, but being able to handle up to six dogs on the same transmitter and more distance is a great advantage of the G2 EXP or the new G3 EXP . You'll love it, just remember when you use it for a correction make sure it is a needed correction. A dog can be ruined if used incorrectly.

Thanks guys.
do you tone train your dogs?
so they come when you call or tone them?

John, not coming when called is a needed correction right?
and of course dont chase the deer.

i thought about the Classic 70
but from what i can make out the trash braker is the same thing but with a little more range.
i figer if i did have problems with the range like some people have posted on other sites i would be better getting this one.
my one buddy told me you can shock one farther than you can hear it.
i guess you dont need much more than that.
i have a garmin tracker so they dont get very far away from me to start with.
but i like the ideal of 6 dogs on one unit and being able to reach out there if need be to stop a deer chase.
i been blessed in that department.
but i run with uncels old broke dogs that dont trash.
he just wont keep a deer runner he said he's to old for that sh!t and he's not gona chase one down...LOL
but there is always a first time
thats why he wants to get a couple collers for these young pups.
we are getting next month.
so we can nip it in the bud.
and he wants to obedance train them.

Theyre expensive but money well spent imo.

Yes, I use the tone button to train em to come to me.

They know that if they hear that tone theyd better get to lookin' for me cause they dont like what happens next.

I've only had trouble with one of my collars.I had one that the power button quit working and I couldn't turn the collar on I had only had the collar a couple of months.I called their customer service and they were very friendly I sent the collar back to them and they fixed it free of charge.

I have the Classic 70 3 dog model that came out before the G2. Been thinking about a G3 system but I have decided when the time comes I will have mine rebuilt. I like being able to turn the collars on with the transmitter instead of having to push the button on the collar. I put the collars on at the kennel then turn them on when I get to the woods. The dogs are ready to go when the tailgate comes down and with the older model I don't have the hassle of trying to get to the button on the collar. It's been a great E collar system and going on six years. I always store mine inside and charge them once a month when I'm not using them. Propper storage and charging adds to the battery life!

I got to break in the new G3s yesterday. We were hunting some public land and the rabbit sign was sparce. Ended up getting into deer. I could tell right away what they were up too but i wanted to be sure. Called my buddy on the walkie and he verified lots of deer tracks and dog tracks following. By now the dogs were a good distance away,i hit the buttons and the race ended right there. Those collars are expensive but worth a million bucks when ya need them!! Called the dogs back in to me and got into some bunnies at another place. Glad i had them on the dogs.

I don't have anything aginst Sportdog collars, I just have never tried them. When I was buying my first set of collars I asked several people on a forum and the majority of them used tri-tronics. So I gave them a try. They have never failed me. I am a firm believer in if it aint broke don't fix it. So I have stayed with tri-tronics

Now that would be a good feature to have!

I shouldnt admit this but Ive put one on a dog and forgotten to turn it on before. :smack:
