    Shot wobbles today and was humbled on the first round. Just a little wind but not a good excuse. Low straight especially were an adventure.
    What adjustments if any do you make when shooting wobbles?

    Hold a lower gun. That's all.

    exactly what V10 said, just hold lower and do not move until you see the target

    The targets are faster and the angles are greater. You will need more lead to hit them. HMB

    What V-10 said, you have to adjust your move to the target and lead accordingly to the angle.

    Some folks like a flatter shooting gun for wobble trap.

    Start the gun very low like below the roof line of the traphouse and look for the target. Don't panic shoot they are all shots that you can make.

    For an extra good time, try wobble doubles .... this is where you find out if you are quick. A lot of fun for just goofing around in the off season but not something to get real serious about.

    Thanks for the replys. I pretty well followed your suggestions on the 2nd round and only dropped a couple, however there were plenty of cheap breaks. I wondered if 7-1/2 would have been better. Being 72 doesn't help the reaction time and add some wind makes for excuses but still fun.

    Up here in Canada we call that "Continental" and when they do run it, it sure is fun. Sometimes the birds seem to barely skim the field and you're hardly clearing the traphouse when you shoot. And the High climbers certainly make you work on the "leads". A flast shooting gun and holding a low starting point helps a lot.
