    I am looking for a voice release so I can shoot at my club without having someone to pull my targets. Our club currently only has a cord with a button and it makes it really hard to shoot. Do any of you have a voice release system? If so...which one would you recommend? Any input is greatly appreciated.

    I have used the Ventriloquist system for many years and highly recommend it. This system was developed by, made by and supported by shooters.
    The unit has a setting for a "bad call" or delay that can really help you in practice. It is not inexpensive, but is a great value for the investment.

    Second on the Ventriloquist. It just plugs into your trap machine, (Or, skeet machine control if you so select) and is a super practice set up.

    I am lucky enought to have 9.5 acres out in the country. I have a machine set up in my back yard. My neighbors do not seem to mind and on occasion come over and shoot with me when I am shooting. I have used a voice release from Clay Delay for over a year now with absolutely zero problems. Simply plugs into the cord on my machine. Work great.

    I too have used a Ventriloquist and have been very happy with their system. The advantages are that you can use one transmitter to shoot by yourself or five transmitters for a full squad and you can switch to shooting handicap without dragging five speakers back & forth.

    As stated above this system is not "cheap" and I don't know what the current price is for a complete set, but if you are interested in purchasing a used, complete set (one receiver & five transmitters) send me an e-mail.

    Will sell this system set up to plug into a Pat trap for $1,300.00 shipped.

    Let me know if you have any interest.

    I have used the Clay Delay and Ventroloquist. --- Vintroloquist HANDS DOWN!
    Never fails, long battery life, versitle, and the owner/builder is the only person to have made the State Team in trap, skeet and sporting for five years in a rwo in our state. He is a shooter first and understaands what is needed. Owner support is 100%.

    The Vintroloquist is like a brick on your side. I have a On Time Every Time release unit. It is and has been a great unit for the 4 years that I have had it.

    I have the "On Time" and it works great. I do not know where you find them now.

    For the money, my vote goes to Clay Delay. Lots of options (Slow Pull, Delay, Instant, etc.) comes with a couple of cords in case you shoot at different clubs. Nice people to deal with, and intelligently made, plus very easy to use.

    ditto that. for the money, you can't beat the clay delay. have you checked with your club first? some of them don't want you plugging your $100 voice release into their $5000 trap machines. plus, you'll have to dismantle one of their button releases to figure out the wiring. good luck with it

    How long do these system's last? I have the chance to buy a 10 year old Ventriloquist system for a pretty reasonable price. I am guessing they would last a long time since they are just circuitry.

    My club is okay with their members using voice releases. That is the first question I asked. There are a few other members that use them but I have not had the chance to find out what they are using or discuss systems with them.

    I have a ten year old Ventroloquist that a lot of peole beside me use at our club and as long as the owner is living, there will be no issues with the unit. He should have a lot of years left too! LOL
