Rated 4 out of 5 by arkansasbowhunter pretty good
it is a good target thrower...i mounted mine to a tire so all i have to do is throw it out and not worry about getting it in the ground and breaking

Rated 4 out of 5 by waduckhunter not too bad
This produsct is fun for the ''just for fun shooter''not really for the competitive shooter.This product does have the tendency to jump out
of the ground after a few throws.I woud definently reccomend this to
the low budget shooter. ;-]

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.
