The Shooting Academy - SKEET Design
SKEET Field Layouts and House Designs. The drawings below represent the design criteria in simple terms. They show how to layout the field using tapes and triangulation method.
They are the simplification of the NSSA Drawings completed by Case - a member of Shotgun World Forum

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.
