    I noticed that they use a powder type target in the oylimpics that explodes in a bright color when hit. Why don,t the Ata use these?

    They use 'flash' targets only in the finals.

    They are appreciably more costly, and somewhat more fragile. I'm not even sure WF makes them in 108mm.

    Targets don't fly as true as regular targets. They are only used in shootoffs in olympic events. Also, in int'l trap shootoffs, "dust" counts as a hit...
