There are several reasons that LAPORTE traps have been chosen for the Olympic Games.  First, they have consistent target trajectory; the target flies the exact path every time.  No other trap has that accuracy.  Second, the fastest release in the trap business; the target is released 2 targets
faster than any other trap.  Third, face exposure; the target has a slight upward tilt, meaning there is a greater area to hit.  Forth, but not last, consistent speed. The target has a faster spin when released ensuring a regulated speed and the target slows down evenly.  Other traps have a fast release then an unregulated slowdown due to unstable flight.
