    Is it helpful? I could see getting two set up for the youth team but could also use the money for shells instead.

    Hi Mathew.

    There are 2635 Wall Charts in use since I brought the new Sparta Grand model out in Jan. 2007.
    They are used by hundreds of youth coaches. Call me toll free at 1 205 294 7600 with any questions.

    I use a full sized wall chart often and it is a excellent teaching tool as it presents a visual that is easy for a instructor to work with.

    Listen to Terry on this as he is the guy who brought it to life and will provide all the details you will need :)

    I considered getting one for the kids to keep the rust off over the winter but they decided to join the winter league instead. Gonna be a long, cold winter:biggrin2:

    Get the chart(s). Learning to look first for the target and then move using the chart will SAVE ammunition in the long run. Also builds up the muscle memory needed.

    If you are looking at this from a budget point of view, the chart is a very wise investment.

    Haven't ruled it out by any means, just shooting the winter and wobble leagues currently is keeping us plenty busy. Maybe once wobble is over I'll look into it again. From a budget perspective, I could buy a couple charts just for the shells we'll go through over the winter... So far it's been fun though

    Masking tape on the wall works just fine

    The small 53 inch wide model is great for shooters that just do not have room for the larger models. I had a senior from Idaho order two a while back and says he really likes it and ordered another one yesterday. He gave a couple away to other young shooters. $95 US. ($70 plus $25 for shipping).

    They work very well for youth teams. Our team bought 3.

    Over 150 shooters bought Wall Charts last year. On sales, most of my sales are to shooters that have a friend that has one and is very happy with it. Sales to coaches at every level were huge last year too.

    Happy New Year from Canada.

    The Jordan Wall Chart is the absolute best trap training tool that your money can buy.

    Hey Terry.

    Just thought I’d get in touch to tell you how much we like your wall chart. Since I received it I’ve read the information a couple of times and hung the chart for my daughter and I. I also purchased a new gun for myself and after fitting it spent some time dry firing on the chart and also added a spacer under the comb on my daughters gun. Yesterday we went out to shoot for the first time this year. My first round with a new gun and I ran a 25 straight! I have to give credit for this to you and your chart without it I could not have been as familiar with the gun as I was. And my daughter Emily was smashing targets like it was late season instead our first of the year. She shot a 23! I just want to say thanks again and I hope to use this to help the other kids shooting on her team.

    Thanks for everything, Joe

    Another great e-mail from a shooter that bought an 8 footer in March 2020.

    Hi Terry.

    Thought I’d pass along a note of thanks. I incorporated the chart and notes this spring into my training routine. The first ATA shoot was PA state which I shot a 97 at 25 yds to earn a 2 yd punch to 27. That was followed up a couple of weeks later with 97 doubles.

    This has been a great asset!
    Thanks again
    Bob

    Thank you Terry for a great training aid.

    Ordered mine last winter after getting into a bad shooting slump last fall. Mine arrived before the China virus shut down so I was able to practice this spring in the comfort of my basement. The first time I used it it answered a question as to why I had been missing quartering targets which I wasn't able to diagnose on the trap line.
    I think the dry practice with Terry's chart is just as valuable if not more than standing on the line burning through shells and becoming frustrated because you can't diagnose your errors. I agree with Two Dogs. I think its probably the best investment I've made in trap shooting
