It’s rare that prod­ucts are mar­keted with straight-talk­ing these days, so it was re­fresh­ing to read how Clever de­scribes the T1 Supertarge­t: ‘This stan­dard prod­uct, even if cheap, keeps al­ways high qual­ity Clever car­tridges.’ Clearly some­thing’s been lost in trans­la­tion here, but even so most car­tridge com­pa­nies wouldn’t dream of call­ing their prod­ucts ‘stan­dard’ or ‘cheap’.

Frankly, by the time they reach these shores they’re cer­tainly not cheap, but they are com­pet­i­tively priced for an en­try-level car­tridge. I like them and so do my clients. Like most shells in the sub £200/1,000 (typ­i­cal street price) bracket, they’re all­rounders aimed at novices and practice. They’ll do every­thing asked of them from Skeet and Trap to Sport­ing, and they’ll do it well. My clients com­pli­ment them on be­ing very smooth to shoot.
