    Our club is going to have new poles and lights installed this year.
    I need help choosing the correct fixtures. We have a quote for 2 poles per field on the 27 yd line, 2 lights per pole 1500 watts each. my question is how many floods and how many spots per field/pole? also what brand lights?
    We have a quote on Teddico standard sportsliter metal halide. It doesn't say what lens is used. I don't want to make a mistake with the wrong lenses on these lights. Thanks for your help, Paul

    We put 4 1500 metal halide lights (Hubbell Sportsliter) per field on one pole. Three spots and one flood. Point them straight out. It lights the place up like Friday night football. Mark

    Thanks Oregunner. Do you know what brand lights you used?

    I looked again after my last post and saw Hubbel. The Teddico looks like the same thing on the web site. About $450 per light. I'll ask the contractor if flood and spot lenses are available. I'm thinking 3 floods and 1 spot per field would work. Thanks again. Pau;

    We went with 3 spots and one flood for each trap field. You need to light things up quite a ways out there. That was from the research I did a few years ago. We got the local power company to donate and install wooden power poles and cross bars. Lights need to be about 25' high. Mark

    These are the Musco sports lighting system at Markham Park in S. Florida. 3 poles per field in a 10 fixture 3-4-3 set up. Poles are 33 yards from the house.

    Those look like they are on a combination trap/skeet field which requires a different setup. Mark

    Oregunner,

    Yes they are on combo fields. So perhaps the 10 fixtures per field is overkill for a trap only field.

    Thanks for the help. 3spots and 1 flood sounds good for each field. I'll ask the contractor tomorrow about lenses. Paul
