Our club is looking to add wireless voice releases.

I have shot off the Canterbury systems at other traps.
Anyone have any experiences, or comments regarding the Canterbury or any other brand release for that matter? Battery life would be one concern.
Much appreciated :)

Compared to ERAD everything else is stone age--nothing to move in caps-- the transmitters can be set for voice sensitivity & speed of launch

For singles or short caps wireless Canterbury or Erads are ok. However, in my humble opinion you will get a lot of inconsistent calls from most anything wireless when shooting from the back of the walk. Stay with the wired Canterbury's...................

Easy way to not have your voice releases walk off. Might be to sign them out by getting their car keys in trade. They sure won't leave without their prized vehicle now will they. At least the honest ones won't.

Wildcat. This was a problem with our Canterbury wireless and we fought it for years. Worked perfect short yardage. Long yardage had some no targets. After beating our head against wall and sending them in for tuning and making sure the voltage was not dropping Blaha blah blah. We had a guy say. " well move the transceiver back". Dah!!!! We bought new longer cords that put the transceiver at the 16 yard line and no more issues!!

Btw it took us a long time to pin it down as we have 5 traps some would work good some not. Just a helpful hint for guys with canterburys The voltage can be as low as 10 volts but should be up around 13 at transceiver. U will have standing voltage stable and when trap runs it can steal power dropping voltage. We found weak capacitors. Only way can find was to sit in trap and watch voltages during shooting after warms up.

Folks,,,,,

There's an easy way to see which release system works best for the shooters at any club anywhere. With like backgrounds have your equipment dealers set up a field with the wired Canterbury's, a field with the Erads and a field with the wireless Canterbury's. Shoot over them for a month and see which field the mid to long yardage shooters break the best scores over.............

Fact, the scoreboard will tell you which system the shooters prefer............
