I've owned both, at the same time. They made a good unit because everything was covered, sight and odor. Not much got passed my dogs.

When they were on a scent or chasing a rabbit it was very hard to get their attention. What we don't know about this study is what hand signals were used and what type of voice commands were used. I found that when my dogs were not paying attention to me I had to wave my hands around like a wind mill OR call them in using a vast vocal range from high to low notes AND/OR both. Even then, a bunny was a bunny and my hounds couldn't care less what crazy command I was calling when they were chasing, or when they were diving into a pile of discarded fried chicken.

It really depends on the dog, the owner, the relationship between dog and owner, how many years of training I suspect.
