The maximum target angle is 45 degrees.
There are nine set programs for the fifteen traps that are used in all countries of the world.

The shooting stations are located in a straight line. On the call “pull” (phono-pull release system is utilized to insure equitable target releases), a clay is thrown from one of three fixed traps directly in front of each of five shooters.

Two shots may be used for each target with no penalty in scoring. In finals only one shot allowed!
Each shooter gets two lefts, two rights, and one straightaway target from each station (Presentations sequence computer controlled).
Shot charge is restricted to 24 Grams (approx. 7/8 oz.) using any safe powder charge (plated shot is allowed).
The Olympic target is made harder, so to handle the higher target speed. The target is of different size than the standard American trap target.
