The popular Mini-Zinger™ or Mini-Z as many people call it is the lightest and smallest winger on the market that can still throw a mallard duck 15 yards. The majority of trainers who choose this model do so because they are "storage-challenged" and do not have a lot of extra space in their vehicles. This small winger can be stored along the back seat of most compact cars and SUVs. I have a customer who calls it her "Toyota Corolla" sized winger. Its short length and lightweight design allows it to be carried into the field more easily than its larger cousins.
When combined with remote release electronics it becomes an important part of your dog training equipment that will quickly improve your dogs marking ability. In order for your dog to successfully compete on a consistent basis they must be shown marks (in their daily training) that have the same distance, arc and height of marks seen at your weekend Hunt Tests and Field Trials. A remote Zinger Winger™ is a must for training by yourself.
More champion retrievers have been trained using Zinger Winger™ remote launchers than any other winger on the market.
The Mini-Zinger™ G4 features heavy duty hinges, an upgraded wire harness and 2 power settings for adjusting the height and distance of the throw. It features Zinger's exclusive servo actuated Multi-Shot Sound™ release mechanism which fires 209, .22 and .32 caliber blanks. The shot fires as soon as the mark is launched allowing your dog to more easily mark the bird as it sails thru the air. This increases the dogs chance of finding the bird and instills a successful attitude in the dog. The .22 and .32 caliber ports give you the ability to shoot an extra loud report for the dog to hear. The .32 blanks are similar to a 12 gauge shot and are perfect for Field Trial type marks. It's also important to remember that the winger can be operated without firing a blank for a silent launch.
Each Zinger Winger™ comes standard with their Rolling Release™ pouch bolt. This release bolt is designed to provide the winger with a smooth and flawless launch while eliminating any possible hang ups of your winger pouch and misfiring of the primers due to worn eye bolts and metal wear. No maintenance is required.
The Mini-Zinger G4™ will launch ducks, pheasants, pigeons, Dokkens, and bumpers as well as live flyers. It weighs 12 pounds and measures 1 1/2" x 25" x 49" when folded flat. Its versatility allows the user to quickly choose direction, arc and height of the throw. An optional carrying case is available for this unit. Compatible with Dogtra, SportDog or Garmin (Tritronics) Remote Electronics.
