    Anyone have any experience with the new pulsator by Higdon. I had the older version and it was a pain having to walk around with the additional battery pack, this new version seems much lighter with the built in battery system. Any reviews?

    I bought one this year and look to pick up a couple more this year. Lightweight so if youre walking in it will make a big difference from the older version.

    The new ones cost less than the older ones, work longer and are way easier to deal with.

    I used an old school jerk cord this morning though.

    Mine broke first time out. Emailed Higdon with a picture. Got a response saying some of them got shipped with screws instead of bolt with a nut. Mine stripped off the screw after using it once. They said they would send replacement parts. That was a month ago. Emailed them yesterday asking where it was and no response. Starting to **** me off.

    I have both, won the old model, bought the newer model. So far i really like them. Im not a gadjet person. Old heavy one is way more of a pain, but notice no difference in performance.
    I carry them in a 6 slot bag with jerk rig to prorect a little more.

    Mine had the screw also, holding the bilge pump to the decoy. Stripped out the plastic on the bilge pump quick. Took it apart and put a bolt and nut on. Easy fix.
