  1. Anyone used Hull Pro one plastic wads for sporting clays? If so how do they compare with Eley Superbs? I have a chance of taking a few thousand at a decent price and wondered how they fared against the Superbs which I have been shooting for a while. 7.5/28g if it makes any difference.
  2. Got my first ranking, C class. Hopefully I'll go up come the next classifications.
  3. I need a clay vest and friends shop sells the Musto championship vests, the normalfabric one and the mesh one. For those that have them are they any good and is the mesh version pretty hardwearing? Thanks.
  4. North looking favourite in the stakes.
  5. Can anyone suggest a good coach for a half day lesson, I am prepared to travel a bit bit obviously the nearer to me the better (Lancashire)? I have tried a coach suggested on here before (not wanting to name names but at a club in the North West) and found him very good for beginners, I just feel there might be other options out there. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for the replies folks, it seems like you think the single stack unit should be avoided if budget allows. One of the reasons I was looking at the Bowman single stack was it was very quick at throwing clays, supposedly it throws a clay 'every 0.9 seconds'....most of the fast carousel units are around 1.5 seconds. I would like to be able to shoot pairs and I thought the single stacker would be the nearest thing I could get to this without buying two traps to fire at the same time (budget does not stretch to this). I think Bowman do a unit now that will throw a pair but it will be way out
  7. Thanks Cat, I'll have a look.....cheaper is always nice.
  8. I am thinking of buying an automatic trap for home use/practise and wondered what people suggest as a robust reliable machine suitable for solo use. I am looking for something that holds 100 or so clays (more if in budget), is ok to be left out in foul weather now and again and is portable, as mostly I will lock it away at night. Ideally it would be great if it could throw a variety of targets and pairs and I would look to have it on a trolley or barrow and I see a lot of the makers actually manufacture these for their traps. Budget is about £1000 max, obviously cheaper is better. Specifica
  9. Coach, are you using the Comp X/Intercomps in plastic or fibre wad?
  10. Thanks for the replies folks. I have decided to avoid the VIP Sporting fibres as I expect they will be a bit thumpy for me and to be honest I'm not good enough to warrant them yet. I have ordered a slab each of Hull Comp X and also Hull Intercomps, both in 28g 7.5. Good things said about both so I thought I would try both. Thanks again for your replies.
  11. Thanks for the replies folks. Just to let you know I have ordered a slab each of Comp X and also Intercomps, both in 28g 7.5. Good things said about both so I thought I would try both. Thanks all.
  12. Following on from my earlier post on Eley VIP Sporting cartridges, who has tried Hull's Comp X fibre wad? I am now considering trying 1000 Comp X instead of the VIP's, specifically I am looking at 28g 7.5s (although I know a lot rate the 21g shell). How do the Comp X compare with Eley Blues and Kent Velocity, all in fibre wad? I have searched but not really found much info on the fibre wad 28g. Obviously they are for sporting clays. Cheers.
  13. I personally find the velocity's a bit more thumpy than the Ely blue fibres. Just curious if the VIP Sporting is more likely to recoil harder given the supposed inrease in speed/performance.
  14. Thanks for the reply mate. For those who have shot them, how would you compare the recoil of the VIP Sporting with Eley Blue (fibre) and Gamebore's Kent Velocity fibre (two carts I have used a fair bit). Thanks again.
