Copy Dodger

Our dodger is getting to the end of its life. I'm wondering if it is possible to send it to somewhere in the world where the pricing is very competitive and have it copied and sent back? We're not in the US and our options are limited here. Any recommendations.

Re: Copy Dodger

If you're at all handy with tools, why not just switch to a hard dodger? They definitely have a lot going for them.

Re: Copy Dodger

The issue with dodgers is that they sometimes shrink over time. So taking the old dodger to use as a pattern, may cause fitment issues with a new one.

Generally a new pattern is used by making one out of clear plastic drop cloth, heavy duty type. That allows for the canvas maker to mark where the supports and buttons are. Only takes an hour to create a pattern to take back to the shop. There is a lot of work making a dodger.

I worked at a canvas shop for a bit.
