    Our trap club has a Beomat double wobble thrower. We only have one house and want to have a regular trap league and a wobble league this summer. They would be run on the same night. Regular trap for a specific time and then the wobble for the remainder of the night. The person in charge of the thrower is not excited about this because it takes him a long time to get the machine back to throwing reg targets. My question is, anyone familiar with this thrower have any ideas on how to get the machine back to throwing reg targets very easily?
    Thanks

    It kind of depends on what type of targets you want to throw in your wobble league. If you're happy with just having the targets wobble, then it's only turning the verticle switch on and then resetting the height when you go back to regular trap. However, if you want the targets faster and the fields wider, to somewhat simulate bunker trap, it takes more time.
    Good Luck,

    What's the easiest way to reset the height? Can it be done in 5 or 10 minutes?
    We aren't changing the speed or width of the field.
    Thanks

    We took a sharpe marker and drew a reference line along the linkage arm and the cam wheel. You just shut off the vertical motor and use the manual adjustment to bring it to the reference mark. Takes a minute to have it set. Good luck

    if you are going from regular trap to wobble you just turn the verticle on. one button only real tuff.

    It's going back to regular trap and getting the thrower to throw regulation targets that is the issue.

    i see, on our doubles machine we have marks on the front of the machine to crank up the spring for speed. you can also mark the vertical wheel that works good too. do you pay this guy who works for you cause we have the same problem ted
