    shooting last night on a cold MI evening. Maybe 42 degrees, light wind good light. I was shooting with some very consistant shooters and never saw so many clays that moved, dusted etc. without breaking. Can the weather be a factor in clays breaking? Very very few "black smoked" clays for this group. Don't know the brand of clays, but I could easily find out. Any comments? Bill

    We shoot "cold clays" all winter long in our winter leagues. 42 degrees should be no problem for breaking clays.

    42 degrees is not cold. We smoke BIOS in our winter leagues at far colder temps than that. Target quality may be suspect!!

    Having the same problem at a club in Pittsburgh. Birds deflected from their flight pattern but do not break. It is all the shooters not just the novices. Mike.

    I will check the brand of clays, sounds like the weather is not a factor.

    and five clubs is twelve
