How much fun is that ! I would to have ago at some of those. Hopefully this will revolutionise TV coverage of the sport so finally it is easy for people to sit and watch at home and then hopefully more people will join in ! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

I'd wonder whether they affect how easy it is to break the clays? Unless it could be proven that they had no effect, positive or negative, I can't see them being used in competition.

They do look pretty good though, wonder how much they'd add to a days shooting?

Just had a look, and these things roll out, at their cheapest price, at £49.95 for 40 targets, so considerably more expensive than the clays themselves.

Good to add a bit of excitement to a day, but you wouldn't want to use too many of them!

Not cheap !

Just a thought....... I wonder if they would be quite good for plinking at with the rifle at 300-400 yards !

Dave, they do a version for rifles. They're mainly aimed at the air rifle market, but I can't see why you couldn't use them for ful bore. Only thing is they are less than 2" diameter, so would be a real challenge at 300 yards!
