    X2 on the Atlas, I've had one for about 7 yrs, and it hasn't missed a lick

    I use a battery charger to run it, makes it a little easier

    I vote for the At;as. Someone at the club has used one for several years and it has not missed a lick. I bought a POS Do-all and it worked for a few months. After that all the do-all did was break itself or the targets.

    trap11, I hope they have improved. Mine even broke the motor gear housing. It finally went to the great resting place of all junk - the city dump!

    One thing I will add, if you are handy at all, you can build the oscillating base for the Atlas, it uses a windshield wiper motor, I bought the base, and after looking at it, wish I'd built my own, would have been cheaper, but it works great

    Second the opinion of the DoAll.

    Bought three of them about six years ago for 4H program. First one was flawless and continues to be. Bought two more it worked so well. Nothing but junk. One never worked out of box. Company had great support but tiered of replacing motors, wire harnesses, gear boxes, etc. The other throws a nice target when you can get it to stop breaking them.

    Perhaps now they have worked out all the kinks, price point was affordable but you get what you pay for.

    Save your pennies up and get a better quality unit.

    Atlas AT250! They are built like a Tank. Buy the oscilator, set it up 16 yards out and you'll swear your are at the Club.
