- More Info
The straight distance from the "Throwing Line" to the bull's eye on the target should be 20 (6.1 m).
The thrower may not overstep or cross the "Throwing Line" before the axe has hit or missed the target. Should be checked by a linesman.
The "Fore-Bit" is the bit in the target direction in the moment when the thrower lets the double-bitted axe go.
Only the "Fore-Bit" of the double-bitted axe can score a hit on the target area &SHY; a condition is however that the bit sticks in the target.The "Fore-Bit" only needs to cut the outer edge of a line of the scoring area to win points of that higher scoring area. The "Back-Bit" is not allowed to brush against the target &SHY; if so the scoring will be 0 even if the "Fore-Bit" has hit the target at same time. Best score in minimum of three throws wins.
At competitions, targets for practice should be provided. Practicing throws at targets planned for competition means automatic disqualification. The standards for a Double-Bitted Competition Axe and the design for a Competition Target are shown below.
1: 20' (6,1 m)
