At Cornell, the highest place a NY team got in boomi was 12th (Brother Fox). I'd guess around 700.
At Garnet, the highest place a NY team got in boomi was 7th (Bay C), with a score of just under 600.

So unless Gelinas, Murphy, Eagle, or Bay improved drastically, I don't think that anyone will go over 2500.
I think they just forgot the 'a' in the word "any"

I'm currently doing research into the feasibility of a 3000 boomilever but I would say that 3000 is a stretch as currently there has only been one report of a Div. C boom breaking 2k. So far research has been promising but otherwise, nothing stands out. As for Div. B, I would say that a 3000 boom is much more feasible.
Heard a report of a 2200+ boom in the C division today at the UCSB Regional (SoCal) from a very good source. I'll attempt to confirm.
Talked to my source and boom in question weighed approx. 6.7g and held maximum weight + a little extra.

Impressive. My 2k boom ran on near similar specs but it didn't hold all the weight. By any chance do you know what team it was? Nice to see that 2k is achievable.

No. To what I know, Gelinas, Bay Academy, and Murphy have not broken 2500 yet.

Has anyone seen any trends between top scoring designs? Like are they the basic single two compression members with some lateral bracing, or are they compression boxes, tubes, bowed, etc.? Additionally, does vertical bracing (connecting compression to tension) do anything?

1. Well if varies but best boom designs to use are compression boxes.
2. Uh, the short answer is no. The long answer is kinda of. (All they really do is maintain your boom aligned)

Thanks, that is nice to know. I've been building a few compression box designs but none have reached 1000 yet. Guess I'll keep building them.
