Hi Messi.

Welcome to the forum. 

We are a friendly and helpful bunch.

Re ets, no I don't use it, I still use a 60 year old wind up Junior 12 slot pigeon clock.

It is not as modern, but it only has one job. To record the arrival of pigeons. It does it very well. 

I hope you enjoy the forum, and feel free to contribute.

I would certainly consider the ipigeon when updating my Bricon system. Would be interesting to hear how yours go. I have been using my Bricon for 4 seasons now. The only real thing I have against it is that when taking the clock to be read off there is no system for continuing to timer other arrivals like there is with the unicon. This could be a problem if racing in different races on the same day. The good thing is that all the national marking stations around here are set up for the Bricon.

To be honest i never got the chance to use it, but good reports about it. Its funny over the years of racing and different ways of clocking in, i spoke to a guy in South Africa and they used Whats App.

Hi Messi and welcome to the forum, I personally don't know anyone with the Ipigeon but I know it is supposed one of the most up to date systems so probably a good one to have. Up until last year I was still using rubbers but having had to join a new club was forced down the ETS route, all our club members are on Unicon and I have to admit I love it. Although I still like to make sure I am there when the birds arrive home it does makes things so much easier and the birds do seem to trap better as they aren't expecting to be caught every time they return home which did often become a problem with the rubbers. I do also have two T3 clocks as I believe some of the longer open races still use rubbers as well as the ETS.

Good luck with system and good luck with the 2022 season, I hope it's a good one for you.

We looked at it ,but it doesn’t work out the Velositys ,the price is great ,still prefer the Benzing M1 ,easier to start & works all the birds Velosity out ,which gives you a better record ,but if your happy with it ,best of luck ,

@messi hi. I meant what area and what club/clubs do you fly with? Good to see your son is involved as well. 

I race down in the South West, but just race in nationals with the BICC, BBC, NFC & CSCFC.
