Wing One "The Ultimate Hand Held Clay Target Thrower"

I recently received the Wing One clay target thrower to perform a gear review on my blog.  My family and I have shot clay targets for several years as a sport as well as in preparation for bird hunting season.  We have used an array of throwers including the MTM hand held clay target thrower as well as the Winchester clay target thrower.  We have used a few other throwers, but these are the main two we have used over the past several years. 

I took my wife, brother, and brother-in-law with me on my clay target expedition to make the trip a little more fun than me just throwing a few clay targets around.  My brother and I were very familiar with shooting clay pigeons, my wife had shot them a few times, and this would be my brother-in-law's second time shooting clays.  The reason I mention this is because when we started using the Wing One thrower, we all noticed how easy it was to use.

What I liked the most about the Wing One hand held thrower was how easy and fast it was to load and throw.  My brother and I demonstrated how easy and fast you can load and throw with the Wing One clay target thrower in the video below!

The Wing One is super simple to load! All you do is simply slide the clay in the space provided and it is set.  With the other clay target throwers I have used, I either break the clay while trying to squeeze it in the opening, or I place it either to far forward or backward in the groove.  With the Wing One, there is no guessing game or no worry about breaking your clay targets while loading.  Below is a close up of the area you simply slide the clay into.

Another thing I liked about the Wing One thrower was the variety it gave me in throwing options!  Because the Wing One is a hand held thrower I was able to change up the speed, direction, altitude, and uniqueness all by the way I threw it.  This was nice seems how my brother and I were there more for a challenge yet my brother-in-law and wife were mostly concerned with consistency.  My brother and I were able to change up the flight patters to resemble everything from low flying grouse, fast flying teal, high flying any many other flight patterns. This feature is not found in any other thrower I have ever used.  The spring loaded throwers do not let you change you speed much, and the other hand held throwers I've used are difficult to control while trying to throw hard enough to get the clay to release.  The following video shows a variety of throws you can do with the Wing One hand held thrower!

We all took turns throwing clay with the Wing One thrower, and all of us including my wife expressed how easy it was to operate.  She had attempted to use the spring loaded throwers, but pulling the arm back always made her nervous and the hand held throwers were just to annoying/complicated for her to feel comfortable with.  The Wing One was simple, easy, fast, and consistent.  If you don't believe me please check out this comparison of the Wing One hand held thrower to a number of other clay target throwers available on the market today.  http://wingoneusa.com/WingOne/Comparison.html

I would not hesitate a second to recommend this thrower to anyone who enjoys shooting clay targets, or anyone interesting in trying out the sport/hobby.  This thrower is simply the best one I have ever used and would prefer using it over any hand held thrower as well as over using my spring loaded string pull thrower!  The Wing One is completely maintenance free with a limited lifetime warranty.  You wont find this product laying around you're local sporting goods store so please check out http://wingoneusa.com/WingOne/Home.html and pick yourself up one today! You wont regret it!

Here is another short little video of my brother using the Wing One
