My Power Dogg arrived recently and this past weekend I wasable to take it out calling and give it a good work out. Overall Iwould rate it about a 3.5 out of 5. Lots of good things, and someareas that could use improvement. For the price point, it is a verydecent product.Good:The howling sequences on thereare excellent, and the jackrabbit distress is also above average, and thepup distress is also very usable.The remote range isoutstanding, as I was pushing close to the 100 yards at times to see if itwould work, and it always responded. Great job on that!Having that red light on the remote was also very handy to have forearly morning hunting that I was doing. Good little extra that noteveryone thinks of.The control layout also makes sense andworks very well, even with some gloves on, I had no problem controllingthe calls and the volume level.The antenna length on theremote and the caller also was very nice and small.The unitoverall is compact to go into a day pack, love how the support rail foldsup nice and close to the calling unit and it doesn't snag on things.The calls are all distortion free even at the volume level of5.Concerns:The cottontail distress sounds horrible. That needs major improvement. It sounds nothing likewhat it needs to.The volume level could be higher, a lot of areas where I can call are wide open and the higher volume would reallymake a difference in my stands.The construction of the unit feels kind of cheap. Maybe this was to help keep costs down, but itjust seems like it could be better. When something is taken to thefield, it has to be able to take being banged around a bit, and with thisI am concerned it won't last. Your testing has probably shownotherwise, but I thought I would mention it.Having used many of your calls in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. Plus with your great price point on your products it is one of the bestvalues for the money. Keep up the great work!Sincerely,
