    What vertical degree angle is the target suposed to leave the trap house at?
    I have to set up a machine this morning, and I can't remember the plate angle.
    Thanks in advance, Colby

    The rules don't specify an angle, they specify a height range of from 8 to 10 ft 10 yds out from point "B". To achieve that height in different wind conditions the angle will vary, that's why the machine is designed so the elevation is easily adjustable.

    . . . as long a the result "looks right." Your traps - and today's wind - may need a little more angle or a little less, but 20 is a good place to start. Likewise, 23 degrees is a good place _to start_ setting doubles.
