Champion FreedomBird Auto-Feed Trap Thrower

For avid trapshooters, Champion Targets has the ultimate home-range accessory in its new FreedomBird. Designed as the fastest trap-thrower on the market, the FreedomBird provides a cycle time of less than a second, enabling shotgunners to throw a burst of targets with either standard or midi clays, thanks to the included midi-clay adapter.

The thrower offers a 50-clay capacity and adjustable throwing angles from 10 to 50 degrees and distances from 70 to 90 yards, thanks to the tension adjustment built into the mainspring. An included wireless remote and foot pedal are intended for solo shooters. Heading to the range is easier, too, thanks to the unit’s manageable 62-lb. weight and integrated wheels.

Retail price is $999. For more information, please visit
