Champion Trots Out New Doubles-Throwing Machine
Champion Traps & Targets, makers of interactive and challenging target systems, has unveiled a new trap thrower designed to elevate any trapshooter’s performance and expectations. The new EasyBird Auto-Feed Doubles is a revolutionary design that presents ATA doubles to backyard shooters.
The new Champion EasyBird Auto-Feed Doubles features removable magazines for easy transport and storage.
With a 100 clay-capacity, adjustable throwing range (35 to 50 yards), easy adjustable mainspring/elevation and 50-foot release cord with foot pedal, the EasyBird Auto-Feed Doubles is a significant step up from traditional backyard throwers and a big step toward professional trapshooting.
“The EasyBird Auto-Feed Doubles is a natural progression for trapshooters looking to take their performance to the next level,” said Jack Christnovich, Champion’s product line manager. “It throws targets up to a 30-degree elevation, features removable magazines for easy transport and storage, and with the targets delivered directly to the throwing arm, there’s no throwing plate to adjust.
"It’s simply a user-friendly trap that throws more than 3,000 pairs of targets on a fully charged 12-volt deep cycle battery.”
The EasyBird Auto-Feed Doubles features an easy access On/Off/Safe release switch to safely uncock the throwing arms, safety ring for visual indication of throwing arm path and operates on a 30-amp circuit breaker to protect the electrical wiring and motor. The trap comes with a three-legged stand and easily mounts to the Champion Trap Taxi (sold separately).
The suggested retail price is $864.95. For more information on this product or the complete lineup of Champion products, click here.
