I did see a couple of high-ish targets on the GP circuit last year and I noticed they were fitted with two strings so they didn't cause any holdups if a string broke.
I realise they are harder to set up and maintain and they could cause legal issues when a pellet misses and heads for the boundry fence! But is there any other reason for their demise?
