I don't know which one is the "best" but I've seen a red & gree bright eyes and blue & green marshals, the red bright eyes and green marshal were both very bright, the blue marshal wasn't bad either.

The blue tracker flashes are very nice, the red one ain't very bright though. As far as any other colors I haven't seen any of the others.

Sunburst by Saturn makes a really good rechargable lighted collar. We have green, red, and 2 orange. They work well, light up when they are put on the dog and you can see them from a good peice away. Lights up most of the dog so you can really see them and what they are doing when they have them on. My husband and dad both us them. We have had ours for about 2 years now. And only had to fix one and that was because a wire inside came loose. Not to bad if you ask me. I haven't used any of the others but I highly recomend these. I think we gave $125 for 2 collars and a charger.

Thanks. I like the Marshall collars but you can't get just a lighted collar, it just comes on their tracking collars.

I started with Sunburst (red and orange), still have them. Now i mainly use my Red Marshall Lighted Collar. My sunburst are getting to where they dont hold a charge as good as before. But i still like them, wished they had an off and on switch. if you ride with them in the dog box they wont stay up long because they will flicker off and on at any bump in the road. If you really like the Saturn collars you'd fall in love with a Marshall collar.

There is no way you are going to find a better deal than the slide on ones Tracker makes.

I really liked what I saw from the Marshall collars when I hunted with some friends that had them. I had every intention of selling my old collars and getting a couple of them. After seeing the ad for the Tracker lights before I did at only $20 per light, I got 2 of them at the World hunt and really like them without getting new collars. Take care, Ron.

It takes about 5 min. to change out the Batts in your Saturns ..

Here is a link to a Batt that is twice as good as what came in them.. It takes 2 batts each collar..

All you need is a soldering gun "Pencil" and wiresolder
