Rated 3 out of 5 by Duck buster Works but tends to jump out of place unless weighted
The thrower breaks more clay than I would like and has a hard time remaining in place without additional weight added. I added lead bars not pieces 20 pound bars to the legs and lets tention off the spring. If your shooting clays by yourself it works but if you out with a friend the 5 dollar plastic thrower works just as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rob Only works well MOUNTED on board or tire
Don't purchase this and expect to stake it straight into the ground. In my opinion, this thrower only does well if mounted to a cement tire or other secure implement.
I took it back and invested in the tripod F&S thrower - WORKS GREAT!! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josh Ok for the cost. needs some tweeking.
Works well but needs heavy modifications to be functional...
The basic setup works well but the force from the throwing mechanism way over-torques the units ability to stay in one spot. needs to be mounted to a large concrete filled tire or palette.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hybop Target Thrower - Save your money
Needs to be mounted to something quite heavy to be useful. Preferrably some thing perminant so you don't have to carry it around. The legs will come out of the dirt after a few throws and you need to pound them in again unless you put something very heavy on them or attach something heavy to the thrower. Save your money and get a $5 hand thrower. They work great and are very easy to use (nice smooth easy throw, trying to throw it too hard or a jerky arm action are about the only things that will mess it up). Would only buy if you are going to permanently mount it to something.

Rated 3 out of 5 by practice shooter not so fast, only half fast
When the cord is pulled it doesn't throw. We had to kind of kick it to actually get it to throw the clay targets. It also doesn't stay secured in the ground. It would probably require 12 inch long spikes to hold it down. We used big rocks and it still had to be repositioned after every pull.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skeeter11x Having Fun!
Ok if you expect a professional grade target thrower you need to spend more. However, if your just getting into the sport this one is just fine. It only throws max about 20 yards without breaking the targets. It is very low to the ground so I had to clamp some bars to the legs to increase the height of the thrower and the elevation of the throw. It also must be very secure (staked into the ground) to avoid breaking the targets and moving its throwing position. That taken into account for [$] it produces enough fun for me. Went thru 80 targets the first day.
