PostSubject: ETS - Electronic Timing System   Mon Mar 07, 2016 7:45 am

I am coming back into the sport after a long break.

When I stopped racing pigeons we did not have ETS, so I know nothing about it - Can you Help!


How do I know which ETS system to buy - does it really depend on which clubs I am racing with - The National, BCC etc, or local club?

Can I use all rings for all types of ETS?

How do the rings go on the pigeons leg?

Do the rings have to be put on when the birds are very young - Like the RPRA rings?

Are the ring permanent or can they be taken off and put on another bird?

What sort of price is a ETS system?

Which is the best type t use?

Thanks in advance

hi bluesky lofts, welcome to the forum....I restarted approx. 5 years ago and am also new to ETS, and havnt used it yet, our club has bought all members one last season but ive decided to stick with the T3 for now, as I say I don't know much about it but heres my views.

our club have bought the bricon speedy which looks a decent clock, and easy to use, I think you can use it for up to 8 races at the same time, and can be used for any type of racing.

I don't think you can use any ring for any ETS system.

rings clip round the pigeons leg, or I think you can still use the combi life ring and the chip clips into this ( not 100% sure)


no , you best put ring on leg once your birds have been trained just before racing, then you don't loose birds with ETS ring on needlessly .


yes rings can be re used on other birds once you have updated info for that bird.


I think the bricon speedy is around £249 with pad etc....altho there is a new model now called the xtreme which is an up dated version.

I think ETS rings are around £1.30 each.


hope this helps, but like I say, this is only a basic idea of what ive heard or seen...ive not used ETS so don't take what I say as truth.....other members will be more clued up on it than me.

yes this was a topic discussed sunday at our club meeting...the cricket club where we have our HQ donated £5,000 for us to buy every member an ETS system, they bought the bricon speedy, but the clocks remain the property of the cricket club.........then we had the quarrelling over members using the ETS for mid week racing in another club or open races etc, so a rule was made that they have to send in our club to enable them to use the ETS in another club , also if no racing in our club for 6 consecutive weeks the ETS is handed back to the club.......

At a rough conversion etc David Smile Smile either your in a small club as such Wink Wink or we are being ripped off down here Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes. Around $2000, once you add the bits & pieces & the Benzing man here, told a certain little fat bloke lol! lol! lol! just the other day, he sold 4 pads to a new flyer to help him get his mob through the traps on race day & that was a mere 1500 odd dollars I'm told. No wonder I stick with my old STB as even the EC rings are around the $2/3 mark on top of our normal rings. cheers

For what I've seen down here V/R/man  Smile  Smile the Benzing system works well & is one of the more popular clocks as such & to give credit where credit is due bounce bounce Clarkie, the Benzing man "Old sparring partner" lol! lol! lol! gives 120% & more in the after sales service area etc & I consider that has to be an important issue of any system one may use/choose. cheers
