    Any opinions on a good backyard thrower? I was going back and forth between the Do-All Aerial Assault and the Champion Easybird. They both seem pretty close as far as specs. Any experience with either one?
    Thanks, Phil.

    I have owned both the do all aerial assault and the champion easy bird. The champion easy bird is a much better unit. Its built heavier and mechanical far superior. I have mine mounted in the bed of my truck with the power cord fixed to plug into the trucks trailer plug. Its about as good as a set up as you can have and still be portable.

    threedeuces- Do you shoot 16 yards behind your truck? Do you use a release trigger?

    Good question, PAT! Like to know the answer to that one myself! Maybe a pic of his truck would be nice?

    Always remember that good things aren't cheap and cheap things aren't good. Buy a ProMatic and live happy ever after. Larry

    I believe he's just looking for a trap to play with, not shoot registered targets off of...That being said, I would be another vote for the Aerial Assault. A friend of mine has one and we really don't have that many problems with it. We did have to replace the foot switch though, but that could been our fault for getting it wet or something. Otherwise, I can't speak for the Champion, never used one before. My 2 cents. Josh
