What is the difference between clay types?

StandardThe standard is the most commonly used of the clay pigeons.

Diameter:  108 to 110 mm / 4.25 to 4.33"

Typical colors:  All orange, Orange top/black bottom, All pink, All black

 

Battue

These targets, although the same diameter as the Standard target, the Battue is a wafer thin, flat target which can be presented as loopers, crossing or quartering targets. The Battue is faster through the air as a result of its design, but less aerodynamically stable, so as it slows it rolls into a vertical position and falls rapidly.

Diameter:  108mm  / 4.25"

Typical colors:  Orange top/black bottom, All black

 

Rabbit

This standard target is 108 to 110 millimeters but is thicker than other clays. Shaped like a wheel to run along the ground, these clay pigeons simulate a rabbit’s path.

Diameter:  108mm  / 4.25"

Typical colors:  Orange top/black bottom, All black

 

Midi

Similar to the shape of the standard. Thereby, this target is faster than ordinary clay pigeons. Used primarily in Sporting Clays, these Midi targets are often used to create an optical illusion, as they can appear to be farther away than they really are and deceive the shooter into giving them more lead than necessary. They are also faster than the standard target in the early part of their flight.

Diameter:  90mm  / 3.54"

Typical colors:  Orange top/black bottom, All black

What are the typical clay presentations?

Crossers:  Across the shooter's view, from the left or right.

 

Incomers:  Towards the shooter.

 

Out-goers:  Away from the shooter.

Chandelles / "Chondels":  Regular standard clays thrown on edge in a long arc.

 

Battues:  Climb edge on, presenting a sliver of a target, then curl onto their sides and fall rapidly.

 

Teals:  Goes straight up, seem to hang for a moment, then drop, gathering speed as they fall. 

Rabbits:  Rabbit targets blast out of the trap in a blur, bouncing unpredictably along the ground as they go.
