#### Topic: Your individually tailored Target Stand

.

I'm experimenting for some time now how to calculate the best and most efficient height of a target stand. I tried a wide variety of different heights for the last two years. Now I think I have a result I can hand out to you. The problem is, that the wrong height of a target stand - or the arms which hold the respective target - makes everything much more complicated and uncomfortable.

I'm 1,91 mtr. in height, which is 75,2 in inches. The optimal height for the target holders I found for me is 1,10 mtr. - 43,307 inches (that's what the translator told me…).

Math is really not my favorite, but well... Now there's a simple formula, which helps you to find a practical height for your individual target stand. This is not the world formula, but - like I said - it'll help you. All you have to do is this:

110 x *Your height in Centimeter* : 191 = The height of the arms of **your** target stand.

But - always measured from the ground! If you ram it into the ground with a metal spike like "*The Spartan*"

or if you built a socket with a huge, high solid base. Like these…

Important is, that the height you get here, is always **measured from the ground to the center of the target holder!** So please don't make the mistake, to start measuring from the top of the base.

Here's an example: The person is 1,72 mtr. in height, which is **172** centimeters.

And this is what the formula looks like:

**191 = 110172 = X**

The "x" at the end stands for your personal, individual level of the target holders. Well, in Centimeters… And now how to type it into your calculator:

110 x 172 : 191 = 0,99 mtr.

0,99 mtr. measured from the ground is a good and handy height for that person, which is 172 meters in height.

One more. Here the person is **1,83** mtr. in height.

**191 = 110183 = X**

110 x **183** : 191 = 1,05 mtr. from the ground is a working height for **this** person.

You want to build a target stand for a child…? No problem. Pretty much the same and simple thing. Let's say the child has a height of 1,36 mgr. / 136 Centimeters. Than it is:

One more. Here the person is **1,83** mtr. in height.

**191 = 110136 = X**

110 x **136** : 191 = 0,78 mtr. from the ground is a working height for **this** child.

I made all this in centimeter, because I'm from merry old Germany, but perhaps some folks here can "*translate*" it into inches, feet and what's more out there In the beginning I added some inch info, but I took that from the translator. But having no experience nor feel for inches, I'd respectfully step back and leave that to better folks than me.

I hope you can work with that and it would make me happy if I could help you with this.

But - remember - always measure from the ground line!
