The old one pees like a 13 yr old
The new one pees like a 45 yr old...............not much vigor being displayed in my opinion.

Are you using the straw that it comes with? I am not.

No, i took it off.
They both run fine for 2.25 hunts (picking up around 10-10:30). On the third morning the new one peters out around
8:42 in the a.m. while Ol Strong Like Bull keeps on pumping. :D

I always charged mine after each hunt regardless of the duration.

I’m sort of curious about it now. I’m going to do a side-by-side comparison because I’m thinking I must not remember it the same way as you.

Either way I think they’re great product and would recommend them.

Just ordered the xs from Rogers. Hopefully will be here by next weekend. Will be using the jerk string until then.

I still like using a jerk string with these anyway. (Permanent blind setup)

I totally agree with Novocaine. The new ones that need a line/weight do not compare to the old ones with the battery box. We still have two we have been using since the first year they came out, but with new batteries. The new ones have less "pressure," and the connection from the pump to the body on the new ones is fragile.
