“We are very proud to win the NASGW award for Best New Accessory and we thank the voters that helped make it happen,” said Jarrod Grove, Senior Brand Manager for Caldwell. “Our incredibly talented team at Caldwell was given a challenge to create a new clay target thrower that was a true game-changer. So, they went to work developing several innovative, patent pending features that address the challenges of traditional clay throwers and make clay target shooting much more fun and convenient. It’s an honor to receive this award, which acknowledges the team’s success and the truly innovative nature of the new Caldwell Claymore.”
