Yep, the arm needs to be able to articulate onto the rear upright strut, apart from that it's a great concept....:thumb:

why not go to this style. ( excuse the poor mspaint editing) same mechanism as before. No splits, it either goes down or it doesnt. No argument no whistle :)

i dont see what the problem is with 99% of the targets in use today as they are. The problem is the cheats and ive already suggested how they can be stopped. Leave the targets alone.

Why should every club have to change targets just for a few cheats who will still try to cheat.

Not much cop for HFT, us mere mortals need a plate to collect all those ones 😀

 

 

For me this is not about getting everyone to change targets just to come up with a better target, just because the current one has been used for a long time doesn't mean they are as good as they can be.

 

I have actually improved the concept, the paddle is in front for the reasons said but the paddle is on a very short stem and can be changed in seconds, so one set of targets to which you can fit any size (or shape) of paddle.

 

Will post pics when I can.

What a crock ok doodah!!! 

A SPLIT IS NOT A HIT,ITS A MISS,

IF IT GOES YOU'VE HAD A BONUS

Frankly im shocked that well.experienced shooters are "backing" this call to change targets. There is nothing wrong with decent quality targets now. The problem is largely people cant/wont/refuse to believe that they have sent a teeny little bit of lead downrange,in a stiff breeze and missed!!! 

All this discussion based on one shoot (2018 worlds) ,just how many of you guys were there? Quality targets I memtioned before,not the use of homemade,gamo targets and baler twine as reset cords. Despite being advised against it by experienced shooters , organisers still insisted on stick said -rubbish- targets up a cliff face.

Im assured that tje problems with all the calls was more of a tactical issue. Once it was realised the targets were the aforementioned ones, they just called and called, knowing they were likely to get a few awarded. This is not a problem that changing thousands of targets will stop.

Why not ? they got everybody to get a kneeling roll . when there was nothing wrong with using your bean bag . except what someone thought was cheating . well this is cheating in it's way . oh i see so this is different cos it could cost not the shooters the money . but the clubs . well of course that is different ???

Also with this type of target ( just the killzone type) You dont get an advantage by learning from other peoples misjudgment of wind. No pellet marks all off to the left or right etc.

Jeez!!to think there are people out there that think FT will become an Olympic sport. 20 years Ive been shooting knokovers along with Holly Collin Kieth and all the others. 

Suddenly "Oh no!! These are no good ,we must change the targets cos some people cant get it in the round bit"

 

Beggars belief

There is not a club in SEFTA who's targets I do not trust 100% and as the name bloke found at a comp you do not get away saying he had it them as could he  not have missed them . 20 plus years WL. I have only called maybe 2 targets first one when I was new to comps made me feel like an idiot as it was a split and 2 nd had frozen solid and first shot on that lane with full pellet on kill.
