Big "thanks" to all at Emley.
2 great courses that showed what can be done to mix things up a bit.
The hard work was obvious in all the land that had been cleared for day 1.
Always enjoy shooting there, hope we continue in the future.

Starling and Dragon figures are designs from TecnoTargets. You do not expect the same quality product. And I hope people will not buy this brand targets and not support such practices.

As far as I am concerned flopover are of extremely high quality infact most of the ukahft and masters comps use these targets. They have also been used in the world championships and I think most clubs have these as part of their practice and competition targets. The shapes I believe are widely used and not only do flopover use a dragon but also other British manufacturers do. Even if there was to be a patent on "your" version the mechanism etc would have to also be totally identical to cause a possible conflict...I believe this is not so. A lot of the targets are infact bespoke designed exactly to the buyers requirements...are you also claiming the sausage dog targets as "yours" ...I am interested as to why if your "techno targets are so much more superior to flopover and the other manufacturers then why are we not seeing them being used at all the competitions. Flopover I believe also have had orders from abroad
This post is.."in my opinion "

There is a simple solution, they must design their own figures and stop copying the other brand targets. I only refer to the starling and dragon figures because these are Tecnotargets designs. Tecnotargets sponsored Nefta Classic since 2014, all siluetes racks used there are now tecnotarget made. Tecnotartgets are used since 2013 world wide, from European Field Target Championship 2015 to the last Field Target WorldChampionship 2016 in Lisboa.
It is a easy thing, if flopover targets are high quality, they wouldnt have problem to design their own figures and not take advance of the work and design of the others brand. Its that simple.

Please do post your patent..also please do not incorrectly suggest that flopover are of poor quality as you did in your first post...sour grapes methinks."in my opinion" of course!
