I own 3 of the wingers and am very pleased with them. I use them just about every weekend year round training for hunting and hunt tests and have never had any problems other than needing to redo the rubbers occasionally

The Zinger Winger I purchased is a 5 star training tool for my dog. Great for steadying him up on retrieves and 40+ yard retrieves. Plus my arm doesnt get tired. Throwing the dummies gets boring for my dog. But not this. I think he would retrieve with the winger zinger all day. Thank you.

I have been training with Zinger Wingers for over a year now. I train 95% of the time by myself, and they are great tools! My dog Molly just received her HRCH title two weeks ago, and it would not have been possible without them!

"I like that we can throw different things with it."
Labrador Retrievers. Owns 8 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. Competes.
I use these wingers when I don't have birds to throw birds for me. I've used them 3-4 days a week with tritronics transmitters and receivers for the past two years. I replaced the bands on them after using them when the weather was cold. Other than the bands dry rotting, I haven't had any issues.

I have been using my two Winger II G4's for over a year now with no issues to date. They have provided an excellent tool to train my lab for retrieving at distance and provide a challenge to improve concentration.

I purchased an earlier model G-3. I like it fine. However, the trigger mechanism is unwieldly and a bit hazardous. If you purchase the rolling release to replace the ring it works much better. Also, I have had to rewire it 2x and the last time I ordered replacements from Zinger I received a much better rewiring kit. I have had the winger for 3-4 years and use it regularly. I also use Gunners Up Wingers. They are heavier but more adjustable and the trigger/release mechanism is safer. But, both systems work well for me and the handlers I work with.

"Over all it is easy to use and is the right size for both Hunt Test and Field Trials."
It is light and easy to carry out in the field and has a very nice high throw. Rubber bands seem to last for quite awhile but you do have to have some muscle to pull them down. And it fits in a SUV very nicely. The winger it self has been very helpful because many of us who use it are older and our throws are just not that great. This way our throws are always consistent. Over all it is easy to use and is the right size for both Hunt Test and Field Trials.

Does what others can't -throw a bird where I want it .DO NOT LIKE THE REAR LEGS SO SHORT .SINCE THEY SELL LEG EXTENSIONS ,THEY ARE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM. WHY DO I HAVE TO BUY AN ACCESSORY TO MAKE THE UNIT SAFE AND SERVICEABLE.

I really like the launcher. The only thing I don't like about it is the release system is too close to the ground and does not allow for ground variance and the legs to get a grip on the ground. Also the release housing setup is kind of cheesy and open on the ends. The reason I went with the Winger ll is the size and launch distance. Otherwise I would have gone with the GU's. The wingers have been very reliable so far.

My Zinger Winger II is one of three Zinger Wingers. The other two are first generation Fiel Trialers. The \"II\" has been trouble from the beginning and now does not work at all. I\'ve even gone to the Zinger troubleshooting site with no help. I\'ve given up as shipping back is too costly to Canada, just order something from them and see how adverse to the customer thier system is. I did order my \"II\'\" from GDS(you).

EASY 1,2,3 SETUP
The Zinger Winger II is an extremely user-friendly training tool. It sets up in seconds requiring no tools or assembly. The Zinger Winger II is freestanding so there are no ground stakes needed to stabilize the launcher. Less time setting up means more time training.
ADJUSTABLE ARC & THROW
Nothing throws like a Zinger Winger launcher. The small size and weight of the Zinger Winger II doesn't mean we sacrificed
performance. The legs are fully adjustable for altering the arc and distance of the throw.
One size fits all (Ducks, Dokkens, Pheasants, Quail, Bumpers, etc.). The Zinger Winger II will launch live birds as well as bumpers for mark training.
The heavy duty vinyl pouch assembly can quickly be unhooked from the frame to limit its exposure to the elements. The quick locking head and leg assembles provide fast and easy set-up. The welded aluminum framing folds completely flat for transport. Using the exclusive ReceiverLok, the remote receiver mounts high off the ground for the best reception possible.
