From what I can tell targets don't have a very good margin, 20% is just a swag and I'd be surprised if it was that high. The economies of scale just aren't there yet. This is why it's so hard to get any kind of discount from a manufacturer, despite almost all of the targets being manufactured overseas.

So course designers: don't plan on getting much of a discount on targets, they are already priced low and the competition is going to keep them low.

FYI - DISCatcher Pro 28 targets are only $325.00 each for course installations with 9 or more targets. This course discount is one reason the Innova DISCatcher remains the top selling target for course installations since 2007.
