    Hi

    From ATA rule book page 49.

    The correct speed for the right target of a
    doubles pair is 39 MPH with a tolerance of plus or minus 0.5 MPH.

    Hi

    Page 49 ATA Rule Book - Setting Doubles

    In doubles shooting, targets shall be thrown not less than 44 yards nor
    more than 51 yards. Distance measurements are on level ground in still
    air. Targets shall be between 8 feet and 12 feet high, when 10 yards
    from Point B. The recommended height is 9 or 9 1/2 feet. The height at
    a point 10 yards from Point B is to be understood to mean height above
    an imaginary horizontal straight line drawn through the post and Point
    B (See Diagram II). The trap shall be adjusted so the angle of target
    spread is not less than 34 degrees. (See the alternative to setting by
    distance - setting by speed - in Section F, following.)
    Target height may also be set based on the height of the target at ten
    yards as measured above the level of the trap arm in the house rather
    than the height as measured from the number 3 shooting station.
    The 17 degree angle will appear to be a straight-away from a point
    3 1/2 feet to the right of post 1; the 17 degree angle will appear to be
    a straight-away from a point 3 1/2 feet to the left of post 5. This 17
    degree angle refers to the flight line of the target from the house to 15
    or 20 yards out and can be used for singles, handicap, and doubles
    targets.
