Studied by German engineers, the numerous square indentations are real lead “catchers” that avoid ricochet and considerably increase the breakability of the clay.
B) DOME PROFILE...
For a more aerodynamic profile.
C) DRIVING BAND WITH MORE RIDGES...
For maximum rotation, excellent stability in flight and long distance (>100m).
D) INTERIOR GROOVES...
To increase breakability and improve scores.
E) CHAMFERED EDGE...
To avoid adjustment of the clay separator on machines - Results in less no-birds.
F) WEATHER GROOVES...
To prevent clays from sticking in damp conditions.
FLASH® EFFECT! With our perfectly balanced mixture, our resin clays smoke on impact creating our famous Flash effect! Petroleum resin RP provides the same effect.
Our clays are available in RP RESIN (Petroleum Resin) – ECO RESIN also named Ecobird (LOW PAH) or NATURAL RESIN (ZERO PAH)
Because Shooters and Hunters have an eco-responsible approach
!- USED IN MANY INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS
RECOMMENDED BY MANY COUNTRIES
– STABLE – CONSISTENT FLIGHT TRAJECTORY
– BEST BREAKABILITY – PERFECT VISIBILITY
– STRONG PACKAGING – NO TRAP OXIDATION
SAME ADVANTAGES AS TRADITIONAL CLAYS!
Since clay shooting was invented, the real birds were replaced by a ball of glass, then came clay targets. A target does not contain clay but a filler like carbonate and a binder.Cole was originally used as a binder before being replaced by petrol pitch. Laporte are pleased to announce our eco-friendly clays.
Our beggar has created for a special petroleum resin (RP), a black resin that has been carefully prepared to be environmentally friendly and limit soil pollution. The resin is available in most countries.
LAPORTE® manufactures over 1.5 million clays per day that makes us the industry leaders in clay target production
We use the most experienced laboratories such as VERITAS to carry out thorough analysis to make sure clays are of the highest standard.
We are proud to meet the regulations of all countries thanks to our eco-resin including those of ISSF and natural resin
Obviously pricing increases when PAH decreases. That's why we invested a lot to improve our manufacturing process to keep affordable prices.
PAH: Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon, one of a class of chemical compounds, organic pollutant
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
Since the end of the 18th Century, the Laporte family have always been pioneers in Clay Pigeons Manufacturing.
Emile Laporte created the first Manual Launcher and made some of the first clays with genuine clay from Biot, where our factory still stands.
Pierre Laporte, Jean-Michel's Father, created the first Automatic Press machines to produce clays in greater quantities. He also supplied the Tokyo Olympic Games with the first half automatic throwers, created the Voice Throwing System and contributed to improve the targets. Jean-Michel developed the company such as the partnership with WINCHESTER in USA. He purchased several competitors to make his Company a true Wolrd Leader.
Jean-Michel continued to innovate with Legendary Traps and also New Clay Pigeon traps like the BATTUE, the Midi Clays and the famous FLASH target that were created to make our Sport Telegenic during Major Events like Olympic Games.
