    We got rid of our corded CVR's and went wireless. We have 4 sets and love them and so do the shooters.

    The club I belong to has both styles, the wireless are handier but the corded have been more reliable and the pullers can control them a little easier. Have a couple members that have their own ERADs & we tried them at 1 registered shoot, they worked fine but it was a hassle keeping track of them. so we have stayed with the corded sets. Just our experience.--Ross Puls

    I can attest to the solid performer issue. We just finished a 4 day Florida chain shoot. We threw about 40,000 targets and not one glitch with the CVR wireless. Over the years we bought 4 corded and 2 wireless CVR systems from Bob Schultz, absolutely the best to deal with as are his staff.

    The new Clark County Shooting Park in Las Vegas has them on all 24 of their trap fields and they work excellent. Once they were installed and calibrated they worked perfectly. No slow pulls.

    Our deliveries to customers now run 3 wireless systems to 1 wired. Most volume of the wireless sales are to clubs that have tried one and are now getting more.

    Set up and put away time is about 1/10th of that needed for wired units, and no cables to maintain.

    Get ready to purchase a lot of batteries because they seem to eat them.

    Grunt,

    The CVR wireless use AA batterys. Use the alkaline version for longer life. A set of five microphones and the scorer controler use 4-AA batterys each for a total of 24 batterys per set.


    320090t:
    You can use rechargeables but why when you can buy AA alkaline batterys at any of the wholesale clubs for $10 for 48. CVR says the batterys should last about 200 hours of on time.

    Do not use rechargable batteries! Each mic pod had a "low Battery" light on it reminding its time to start thinking about changing batteries. Rechargable give no warning, the just go from working to not working.
