I am a skeet shooter but understand Trap and Sporting Clays. What I don't get is the difference between Sporting Clays and FITASC. In reading a few articles, it sounds like the major difference is no cage and no premount. I am seeking the wisdom of this forum to break down the differences.

Thanks in advance.

Sporting consists, typically, of 12-16 stations for a total of 100 targets. At each station there will be several repetitive pairs exactly the same.

Fitasc uses a menu of single targets and pairs of those. A parcour consists of 25 targets typically shoot from three different pegs (positions). So, for a 100-bird event, there will be 4 parcours. Each typically has 5 machines. Usually you will see something on the order of 4 singles and two pairs, 5 singles and two pairs, 4 singles and two pairs. You do not get to see report pairs, but you do get to see any true pairs. Yes, there is the low-gun mount requirement, but it is not as low as I.S.
Fitasc moves at a slower pace, but it is enjoyable.

FITASC takes about an extra hour and a half per round

We allowed 45 minutes per parcour at major shoots, so a 100 bird event is closer to 3 hours. But then, at some larger sporting events, a 100 bird shoot could also last that long.
