My shooting buddy couldn't master the plastic one.My wife bought me one of those at a garage sale once. I was never able to successfully launch a clay any distance with it. I think we sold it at our next garage sale. Those red plastic ones are pretty easy to use.
Thanks for the knowledge - since I have both, I can take different shooters out together.I've got both the Remington-type and the plastic thrower. You're not going to get high speeds or long distance from the Remington-type of thrower. Don't try to strong-arm it, they aren't meant to work that way.
Here, watch this:
I think the Remington-type are nice for teaching new shooters because they throw the clays slower and shorter. The plastic throwers are fun for more experience shooters. The quickest way to discourage a new shooter is to take the fun out of it by making it too difficult. Just my opinion.
My dad bought one of those red plastic throwers back in the 70's.I've found those to be bogus.
The one-piece plastic is superior IMO.
Still a learning curve, though.
MTM Target Thrower 19"" Red - The EZ-Throw is the original patented design clay target thrower. Its one-piece design throws clays faster and farther than most mechanical throwers and it will not break or rust.www.sportsmans.com
I've thought about those over the years. But then I realize I don't average even one clay pigeon shoot per year and start thinking about how it will just be one more thing to constantly move out of the way in my shop.
Yep if you don't use it it will take up a corner of the garage.I've thought about those over the years. But then I realize I don't average even one clay pigeon shoot per year and start thinking about how it will just be one more thing to constantly move out of the way in my shop.
