Our Compact 150 is great value for a carousel trap. We’re able to offer such a good price point due to using a steel frame for the main body. We use strengthening brackets to ensure that the frame remains sturdy and stands the test of time. 

Paired with a yellow spring, throwing standard clays to 85m and midi’s to 95, the Compact 150 has proven itself to be to be a very reliable trap which throws a fantastic variety of sporting targets, perfect for home use and much more. 

The Compact 150 is Popular for home use, and also a firm favourite with coaches and clubs.

Michael Coates Shooting, owns a fantastic company based in the Lake District and hosts outdoor based activities. Michael uses our Compact 150’s to offer clay shooting experiences for beginners, experienced shots and corporate events … here’s what he had to say about its performance.

“A fantastic machine! It’s small and compact, we can easily loads 4-5 machines into a small trailer. The trailer is easy to move around and will travel across awkward ground because they are light. We have the 150’s mounted on low profile barrows which pull nicely, even across boggy ground. With a 150 clay capacity and wireless remote, they are more than capable of running our big events. Working with lower powered springs makes it easy to target specific drop areas and keep our land owners happy; if we need to, we can chock a wheel up and get lovely curling targets. It’s Robust, looks the part and with the personal back up service we happily recommend Bowman to all of our customers.”
