    Our club is thinking of getting away from the cantaburys and going with the ERADS for registered shoots. Im taking a poll to find out how many would still shoot or would you leave appon learnig of the erad use?

    for ya'll that dont know the erad it is a reciever that you clip to your lapel. no more speaker on a stand in front of you.

    Thank you

    Our NC Homegrounds use them - Rockingham Gun Club - Coharie GC - Buckhorn GC - our club has 80 members that own their own devices.

    We have a switch in the trap that switches between the ERAD and the wired sets for clubmembers that don't have them.

    We have 4 complete sets for our registered shoots.

    Also - we have them for our skeet fields also.....

    PS - the fellow in the middle is wearing an ERAD

    They are great but if you intend to use them for any type of registered or other organized shoots make certain the scorekeeper has a "master" control that will disable all of the individual mics. otherwise your going to waste a lot of targets. They do take a little getting accustomed to as it's easy to forget you have the mic clipped on and walk away then somebody has to track you down to retrieve it. Ross Puls

    I have not seen them but I'm guessing that their use would eliminate targets released by loud callers on adjacent trap fields and I think that is a big distraction especially in Handicap.

    ERADs are great. They are not nearly as noise or speaking voice sensitive as Canterburys, very reliable and readily programmable. I really like using then where ever available.

    My vote is for. I have my own set. They are particularly nice in Handicap. No moving the mic before you can shoot. Everyone does it.

    Our club, Durham County Wildlife in North Carolina just got several sets for registered shoots.
    We'd like to start using then for every day shooting. Right now were still using our wired Canterburys. You need to make your members responsible for not losing or walking off with then.
    I'd like to buy my own personal one like Fred.

    Everything else is stone age compared to Erads. There are no & I mean eroneous calls from adjacent fields or autoloaders slamming their actions closed. No speakers to move. No wires to maintain.

    I have used all of the voice release systems. The erads are fine if the weather is perfect, The scorer knows how to program them and they don't walk away with the previous squad. Rainy weather plays havok with them. The wired Canterbury seems to be the system with the least problems for me and the Club I manage.

    How about, you don't get to hear your score until you hand in the unit?


    (Guess that doesn't work with the pissed-off guy who shot 17 and stomped off...)
