tt15 vs. 15 mini

Anyone notice much of a difference in range between a normal 15 and a 15 mini? Going to purchase a new collar shortly and would prefer the smaller size but don't want to sacrifice range on my bear hounds. Advice?

Thanks!

Les King

I have both.

It seems to me that the big collar get a longer distance.

That's really the only difference I have seen.

No difference in mine. Been over 6 miles with a mini and never lost signal, Garmin only claims 4 miles.

i noticed a difference in distance between the full size and mini. not a huge difference but there is one.

i also notice on a big dog the tree switch isn't accurate as with a smaller dog i guess because they werent intended for use on big dogs- more geared for beagles/feists/ect

If they were the same why would Garmin make both?

I have 4 of the minis. Bought them when they 1st came out. Had the regular TT15's before that. Had one of the mini's die after 4 yrs. of use. Could have had it repaired for $100 from DU Hound Supply. Chose to trade it in instead. My old collar and $100'put me in a new one. I've had basically zero issues with mine. Most people I know that have had issues has been because they haven't stayed current on the updates when they come out. Good system in my book. I started with the DC-30's and upgraded when new ones have come out. Great product. If it wasn't their wouldn't be as many systems in use as there is.
