First impressions  the Box arrived this this morning , it was very well  wrapped and labelled , the box is a Mk 1 but much better made ,the collar  is highly  visible and made of plastic and a good si

On the other hand ; if the box is basically a Mk1 ( actually a misnomer as there were several marks of the "Mark 1"🙂) it will work with modern collars.

Same, I love the new collars no messing about with a screwcap and insulation tape etc just a nice waterproof collar with the magnet to turn it on and off but just can’t get on with the disco box and n

So there is still no real option other than this new version of the mk1 box but it will pick up mk3 collars?

ive given up on the idea of the Nelson version - all I need is another 2 collars to work with my current orange box. 

Your not the only one who’s given up on Nelson and not just the ferret finder either

Having just lost a mk3 collar this morning somehow I am in a bit of a bind.

what are the current options realistically?

I have 2 mk3m collars (now) and a locator box but I really could do with maybe 5 collars. 
 

is my best option one of these new sets with some collars (and will they pick up my mk3 collars?) or something else. 
 

I really can’t be bothered going back in time and working without collars. 
 

could do with it sorted ASAP because got a busy spell coming up. 
 

cheers.

The new box ( mk1) will pick up both your mk3 collars aswell as the newer ones he sells with it I’m sure pal but your box won’t pick up the mk1 collars, there is a few mk3 sets about on fb but the collars themselves are hard to get now

Thanks, that’s my issue. I just need the collars and they are rocking horse ….. to get hold of. 
 

I’ve even got 2 collars that don’t work and can’t find anyone to see if they can be fixed - ridiculous and frustrating. 

If the 2 that don’t work are just cos the silver contact has fell out he empty side of the cap then a bit glue to hold it on will fit i back in place, but if it’s the cap side with magnetic switch (usually is) inside that’s broken then they are goosed as it’s a sealed unit I’m sure an even seven refused to fox mine when I tried but offered to sell me a few cheaper than usual. Hold onto them tho as somebody may suss it out as now there’s none about some body will find a way.

All in a box waiting for a genius to figure out fixing them (with the exception of one sitting somewhere down a Warren). 
 

Just frustrating that we are sat with good (expensive) kit that is now pretty useless and I can’t help but think that il spend money on this recent one and then something better will come along. 
 

having said that, little lurcher is coming along nicely so it’s worth getting out regardless on locators being a pain.
