    My Trap machine gave up the ghost and I need to replace it and was thinking of upgrading to a machine that could throw doubles and still not break the bank.

    I have been looking at the western trap conversions offered by wester retro products online.

    Was wondering if anybody had any experience with these and what their opinions were on the product.

    I would be interested particularly in the DS100 model that throws doubles.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mr. Mark Sheets

    Almost every trap club in the country has a couple of WW traps laying around for sale, or give away. Hard to beat doubles thrown off of a WW handset. Never seen a conversion up close but the video looked good.

    Looks like this little accessory is going to add about $1500 to my trap machine cost.

    Anyone know of an alternative that might save me a little money?

    Thanks 320090T

    Here's a newer video clip taken during installation of a 5-Stand yesterday. The first video shows the DS100 throwing Pheasant Targets over 100 yards. The second video shows the machine using "White Flyer" targets throwing automatic doubles with the wobble motor turned on. You'll also notice the machine wasn't bolted down. Just having fun on a sunny afternoon on the West Coast.
