If this post should've been in another area, I apologize.* I thought I'd put it here so more people would read it.* I got a full-size mallard for Tucker, and we tried it out earlier today.* He likes it!* I do too.* It's a nice weight, is solid, and with the throw rope you can throw it pretty far very easily.* He retrieved for about 1/2 hour, and there were no problems....there are no punctures in it.
As part of the promotion at the time I bought it, I also received the striped bumper.* We've not tried that yet, but I know he'll like it too.
I like this product....the overall look, and feel and weight, and since it's strictly for retrieving, he won't be playing with it and chewing on it, so it should last for quite some time, I think.
