Pinto Bean. He's a Labrador/Catahoula mix. Higher maintenance than other brands but he can find them in the brush when I can't.

366g for the 16' version. Almost dead on to the weight of 2 max-weight discs. I don't know if that changes your thoughts on it.

And I don't know who came up with the idea of the Fatmax originally, but thank you to whoever it was. I got one last night, after seeing it mentioned in a post a few days back, then wading into a foot of really cold water yesterday to retrieve a disc that could have been gotten with a Fatmax. This, after finding a 6 foot branch to assist the process.

I got the 16' version because I'm mostly concerned with retrieving discs in shallow water hazards, so the tape has to be extended horizontally. I assumed (correctly) that the tape would collapse long before reaching the 25' of the longer version. Turns out I can get mine to 11 or 12 feet before it collapses, which i still think is pretty darn impressive, for such a compact tool.

Thats a bummer dude. most of the cases I have seen with any issues with the rexarm seem due to mis handling it, but sounds like you have not.. have you tried contacting them?


I seriously love mine compared to my discgator, but as some others on here, keep a golden retriever in my cart as well, and my disc gator in the truck just in case, as well as a tape measure. Anything I can do to not lose a disc

I haven't contacted them, I likely won't. I have gotten it a bit better now. I used the lubricant that we use on our campers slidout, and that seems to have helped it quite a bit. It's still jamming a little but you can work it loose.

I bought the Hooker from https://impactdiscs.com/. It works pretty well as long as you have a stick nearby. I've pulled 5-6 discs out of the water with it so far.

Default The Best Disk Retriever Ever

Hello everyone, I’m in the final stage of prototype/production of the M-Retriever
This is gonna be a game changer. It’s time to someone to take this seriously,. Disks are everything to our sport and a great retriever should be the most essential accessory that we should bring. I think the disk retriever deserves more respect and attention than what we have seen so far.

I’ll keep you all updated here.

And yes, I’ll give away few of them for some of you to review!!!!!

I am liking the Instep Kwik Stix. For those that have had one for a while how does it hold up?
