LAPORTE BALL TRAP COMMENT

Consistent trajectories, record breaking memorable competitions “

To design a sporting layout, the course setter requires the right machines. The Laporte 185 PC machines offer compact and lightweight traps for easy setting up. The pro trap fitted with tilt base offers trajectories only achieved in the past by special devoted traps, now one “pro” trap can throw, loopers – teal – downhill or normal trajectories, at various speeds. Combine this with rabbit, battue, mini 60mm and midi pro 90mm traps to design any International or club sporting layout.

h sc : ma ny o e t m pe sti te

The design and engineering of Laporte traps ensure the machines continue to operate in extreme temperatures! Laporte - designed by engineers and approved by shooters and ground owners throughout the World. Mo Parson - Course Setter

THE LAPORTE® CLAYS

sin c e 1 9 2 7

LAPORTE® GRAND PRIX WEATHER GROOVES To prevent clays sticking in damp conditions.

INTERIOR GROOVES To increase the breakability and improve the scores.

DRIVING BAND WITH MORE RIDGES For maximum rotation and excellent stability in flight. Reinforced structure allows the clay to be thrown a distance of more than 100 m (110 Yds).

DOME PROFILE For a more aerodynamic profile.

CHAMFERED EDGE To avoid adjustment of the clay separator on machines and reduces the number of no-birds.

DIMPLED DESIGN Studied by German engineers, the numerous square indentations are real lead “catchers”. Avoiding ricochet and considerably increasing the breakability of the clay.

FLASHING-BALL®

The game: Flashing-Ball® is based on clay pigeon shooting and offers a whole new experience for all age groups. The Phoenix® machine can be easily adjusted to fire a number of varied trajectories. Use more than one machine adding a wider range of targets making this already addictive game even more challenging. When the player hits his target the ball filled with white nontoxic powder flashes, giving the same effect as the Flash® clays used at the Olympics and all other major shooting events.

PAINTBALL

Use this machine to organize trainings for paintball shooters. www.laporte-paintball.com

SPORTING ARROWS® A new game is born: a bow, arrows and moving aerial targets! Thanks to the different trajectories, amateur and accomplished archers can rise to a new challenge. With Safe Arrows for children and beginners, you can create exciting animations indoors or outdoors, for a large public audience. This game is silent and accessible to all for amusement or competitions. www.laporte-archery.com gflashin eo: id ball v

Laporte activities between the 14 tryed by the Scouts.

For the 2013 Jamboree the biggest meeting of the Scouts of America®, 30,000 children and 10,000 supervisors have used the Laporte® machines! With the Sporting Arrows for Archery and the FlashingBall for Paintball, everybody was introduced, for the first time, to our new disciplines and familiarised themselves with these two sports, which are gaining popularity every day around the world. The event took place at Mount Hope (West Virginia) in the heart of the famous Summit Bechtel Reserve National Scouting Center. Partners until 2021, we are very proud to be associated with one of the largest non-profit brands in

the USA (focused on children and education). TM

Once more, Laporte’s innovations open up new horizons and opportunities. The Scouts in the USA constitutes 5 million active members, 50 million participants and diverse recreational activities. With such magazines as Scouting® and Boy’s Life®, we are able to reach nearly 10 million readers. This prepares the way for numerous Sporting Arrows and Flashing-Ball competitions.

Some figures : The jamboree is: •3  0,000 Scouts •1  0,000 volunteers •1  50,000 visitors •A  n old-fashioned steam train •4  ,290 hectares reserved for the Summit •3  2,400 hectares of park... 36,000 hectares of adventure Watch the photos and videos of the event on on our facebook account: LAPORTEATJAMBOREE

A testimony from Stan Bach (Elford Clay Pigeon Club) "â&#x20AC;&#x2030;We leave our traps out at all times and the river flooded the field to a depth of at least 4 ft. When the level dropped to allow us onto the shoot we were amazed that after a bit of cleaning and greasing all the traps worked first time. The ABT which we purchased at the beginning of the year was completely submerged under at least 6 ft of water for three to four days including the electronics. The only problem with it was a fuse has blown when we tried it first time. We have a total of 20 Laporte Traps (185`s, Arm Rabbit and single stack 85) and would highly recommend Laporte Traps to anyone for robustness and reliability."

Reliable and Robust Exceptionnal build durability... Our after sales service technicians are not surprised when a trap arrives in the work shop and they find the trap was manufactured some 30 years ago! With such long lifespans the Laporte traps certainly offer exceptional value for money. Since 1927 this has been one of Laporteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trademarks. Each trap is assembled by hand and is tested prior to being shipped. The machines boast an anticorrosive coating and are constructed of more than 60% aluminium alloy. The forces of nature in the field are the optimum test for any machine. Take the Beijing Olympics in 2008 when heavy rainfall caused major flooding. Despite being submerged in water for a period of several days the machines were functioning normally as soon as the waters receded. Just another example of the performance you can expect from a Laporte trap.

Time and time again we hear from satisfied customers who tell us about their experiences in the field and how their Laporte traps continue to operate under the harshest of conditions. If you want the very best then choose a manufacturer you can count on for total peace of mind who will ensure your total satisfaction with your purchase. Laporte first time, every time, simply the best.

World renowned Quality guaranteed Throughout the manufacturing process of a Laporte trap each of our machines benefits from the wealth of knowledge that our specialist technicians and electricians can give. Unsurpassed expertise has given our Laporte traps a reputation for reliability across all 5 continents.
