Buy One That Costs Alot More
I bought this thrower with the intentions of keeping it simple and low in price. I don't shoot clay that often, and crow hunting is about as extreme as I ever get with wing shooting, but, every once in a while it's fun to do, more of a fun activity with friends, rather than a practice session tool for serious wing shooting.
It will throw targets fairly regulary, however, after several throws you have to recalibrate it's direction, it is not a consistant thrower, it is certainly powerful, but, not consistant.
The second problem I had with it was stability. The stakes are quite useless, you beat the thing in the ground and three throws later it has jumped completely out of the ground, and if you're not watching it, it might jump at you. The only way to keep it stable is to mount it to a tire rim, with the tire, the rim alone is not enough to keep it in place, so take a spare tire with you when you go, it beats a 4 x 8 sheet of 3/4" plywood or a heavy steel plate.
The third complaint I have is that the corners of the side and rear stakes are miter cut and bent over with a poor weld, after you beat on them to get them in the ground, you basically have broken all the welds and the whole thing is either lop-sided or laid out flat, the construction is pretty poor in the leg stakes, though the steel frame and parts are built like a rock.
There are much better throwers on the market and I would simply suggest spending some really good money on a higher quality thrower, like I mentioned before, I rarely use the one I have and it's not alot of fun to use. If someone were going to use a thrower all the time, or at least regulary, pay the money for a really good thrower, you'll be aweful glad you did.

Not as I expected!
This is a fair clay target thrower but not much better than a hand held thrower. It has to be very stationary and that is hard to accomplish. I have to strap mine down on the back of my four wheeler and it works fairly well there. At my camp I have installed three pipes in the ground and when we use it I slide the legs into the pipes and it works well that way. It will not stay put staked to the ground plus all that leaning over and loading wears me out! If it is bolted or welded to a stationary item it will throw skeet well. I quess you get what you pay for?

Is your boyfriend a serious trap shooter? I ask simply because for a recreational shooter (ie: a couple saturdays a month for a few hours) this thrower would be ok. but if he is a serious trap shooter he wont get the performance he is lookig for out of this particular thrower. But then again, its not designed for that anyway. Its a budget thrower. But for a novice, casual or just starting out shooter this would be ok. Its a decent price for what you get.
