    Hi

    Is 21 degree angle correct for setting height for singles on the Pat Trap.

    What degree should we use for doubles?

    We are using 42mph speed for singles and 39mph for doubles.

    Thank you

    Depending on a lot of factors - height of the trap in the house being the first to consider, 21 degrees is a good place to start for singles, three or four degrees higher for doubles.

    But the you still have to keep wind in the equation and that may change the angle you need. I personally have more trust in the eye of an experienced setter - or a 9+ foot pole at 10 yards - to get a nice target than I do an angle meter.

    I have little faith in the eye of an experience setter to get the speed right, or as "right" as a radar or chronograph can.

    There are people who successfully use the angle meter for everything but I can't get a lick of performance from them and use something else.
