I am thinking about buying a skeet thrower/machine from Academy. I don't know the difference between the $29.00 and $59.00 ones, so thought I'd ask for some advice. I'm open to suggestions and/or recomendations.
Also, if anyone has bought one and mounted on something post up some pics so I can get some ideas.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

I have one that has three legs that have to be pushed into the ground.
Gets kinda difficult when the ground is rocky but it doesn't go anywhere either.

Do yourself a favor and get a couple of these...

Make sure you get the single thrower and one person can throw two at a time with some practice if you get two of the single throwers. These are much more fun than a spring slinger. Faster to reload too. With some practice, the thrower can make the clays do some neat stuff. If you can find it, they sell them with an extended handle which is even better.

I took one of the three legged type and welded it to a large peice of 1/4" plate.It stays down by the pond so we never move it around to much but it works great.

Pathfinder's on the money. The EZ thrower is much better than any of the spring thrower's I've had and you can also pick up an extension handle to mount to it at CC - kinda like a golf club shaft. Very easy to throw, with much better distance & velocity if desired.

That trius or whatever it's called is a lot better unit than the cheaper ones. I generally don't even bother with the stakes on the bottom of them: I just bolt it to a piece of 2x2 square tubing and stick it in the receiver hitch of a pickup. You get a significant bit of extra range on it if you've got it locked down to something solid. stomping it in the ground, tying it to a tire, etc, would all allow it to move enough to suck up some energy. I haven't seen one pick up a ford or chevy enough to lose energy, though. Maybe a dodge.
