The popular Mini-Zinger™ or Mini-Z as many people call it is the lightest and smallest winger on the market that can still throw a mallard duck 15 yards. The majority of trainers who choose this model do so because they are "storage-challenged" and do not have alot of extra space in their vehicles. This small winger can be stored along the back seat of most compact cars and SUVs. I have a customer who calls it her "toyota corolla" sized winger. Its short length and lightweight design allows it to be carried into the field more easily than its larger cousins.
A remote Zinger Winger is a must for training by yourself. When combined with either Dogtra or Tritronics Remote Electronics the Mini-Z becomes an important part of your dog training equipment that will quickly improve your dogs marking ability. In order for your dog to successfully compete on a consistant basis they must be trained on marks that have the same distance, arc and height of marks seen at your typical weekend Hunt Tests and Field Trials. More champion retrievers have been trained using Zinger Winger remote launchers than any other winger on the market.
The Mini-Z features our new heavy duty hinges, upgraded wire harness and offers multiple settings for adjusting the height and distance of the throw. It features our exclusive servo actuated Multi-Shot Sound™ release mechanism which fires 209, .22 and .32 caliber blanks. The .22 and .32 caliber ports give you the ability to shoot an extra loud report for the dog to hear. The .32 blanks are similiar to a 12 gauge shot and are perfect for long distance Field Trial type marks. It's also important to remember that the winger can be operated without firing a blank for a silent launch.
All Zinger Wingers will launch ducks, pheasants, pigeons, Dokkens, and bumpers as well as live flyers.
Size and Weight
The Mini-Z™ was designed to be lightweight and take up the least amount of space as possible. They fold flat to fit into the backseats of small cars and minivans as well as above dog crates and car toppers. They can also be carried into the field by just about anybody (men, women and kids). The Mini-Z™ weights 12 pounds and measures 1 1/2" x 25" x 49".
All Zinger remote launchers are designed, fabricated, assembled and tested
in Canada using parts and services purchased from both Canadian and American
companies. Zinger launchers are not made overseas.
Compatible with Dogtra or Tritronics Remote Electronics (Except Manual Version).

Arc and Throw
The small size and weight of the Mini-Z™ doesn't mean we sacrificed performance. It features fully adjustable arc of throw. The angle of the throw is affected by changing the position of the legs. Field trialers will enjoy the consistent height and placement that best simulates a hand thrown mallard. It throws marks higher and longer than other wingers twice its size and weight.
