    Several years ago I shot quite a few rounds of regular trap from the 16 yd line and was averaging 24 but for the last two years we only have wobble trap and I'm averaging 20. I have been getting frustrated with this and wondered if the wobble trap was that much more difficult or if it was just me. What's your opinion. Is it just me? Jackie B.

    I think the gun may have something to do with it. My experience is that my flatter shooting gun does me better in wobbles than my unsingle long barreled trap gun.

    I am consistantly better at wobbles than at trap. I think wobbles makes me shoot faster and is good practice for trap.

    Wobble is a bit harder only because it adds the vertical unknown. Very fun to shoot. I have one and use it now and then as a true wobble when I find myself getting into a "aiming" habit. You just can't aim and shoot wobble so it breaks me of the habit in only a few shells.

    Wobble/Continental birds are usually thrown faster because the machines are cranked up. The birds may be going 10-20 mph faster. Also that angles can be set wider for a more challenging game. It's much more difficult to run 25 on a wobble field than regular birds. If you really want some action try wobble doubles. LOL. Bob

    Wobble trap is good to shoot as you must watch the clay as it has no set height and follow and shoot,make haste slowly.

    I like wobble trap. It slows me down because of the added up/down dimension. My scores in regular trap usually improve after a few round of wobble. For me, it's the mental equivalent of swinging three bats in the warmup circle in baseball.

    Our wobble trap is set up to use the long pins so throws some real sharp angles and is nothing like shooting regular trap to me. The low birds are easy to miss for me since they are going considerably faster than an up bird. We play a game called scrap from an overlaid skeet field and I love it and usually do pretty fair. LOL Jackie B.

    Poor Man's Bunker !

    Love it, especially with a Lincoln trap.

    It stays put until the bird goes, then moves to a new spot to park.

    Regular traps on wobble just seem to average out and not give the extreme birds we all know and love !

    Grounders you have to shoot under or with a downward brush stroke

    FUN

    We have a wobble trap and a regular trap , wobble gets used more than the trap..
    Its fun and frustrating...:)

    We shoot a wobble trap protection from the 30 yard line, some interesting shooting there. I should have pics of it, look up Edwardsburg Meat shoot; we are shooting this sunday the 6th of March..

    Jackie, we shoot a spin off called "squabble". We take a voice activated mike and put it in different locations around the trap house-some are actually in front of the house. It is much more difficult than wobble-more like shooting sporting clays. We do it just for a diversion. Mike
