Right now I've seen many teams trying to replicate Boomilever designs that our team uses, along with Stevenson. It's hilarious how they think copying our designs is all there is to it as they have been getting sub 400 scores while top teams in IL are maintaining 800+ scores. So far I'd say the average competitive boom score in IL is in the 700-1800 range. How are supercompetitive states like PA, OH, TX, CA, and MI looking score wise for Div. C?

In two weeks UMich invite will take place with all the top Michigan teams. I think that should shed light on Michigan booms then. As of now I'd say that top Division C are around 1200 and B are around 1600

Interesting. So I'm not the only person struggling to get a Boom score above 1k? I think if any team reaches a score of 2k they could easily medal at Nats.
Given how boom works and seeing some top team Booms/mass I'd say the lightest boom will be around 7.5g with max load at Nats seeing how any lighter means having a lighter/weaker density wood which is rather risky.

Reading your posts make me feel so much better. Our head coach claims that we need 2000 before our March 16th state tournament to do well.

2k is insane! As far as I'm aware of no one in the country has broken the 2k point in Div. C for Boom! It will require the perfect wood to result in a high enough efficiency. :(

For towers yes, you DO need 2000 at state to place well. But Boomilever is different; you have way more force on the parts of your Boomilever, resulting in more things that could go wrong.

Are you talking about div c or b, there are a couple teams over 2000 for div b right now so nats placement should be like 2300-2700

He's talking about div c...
It's way harder because our Booms need to be lower which means more force. Div c nationals 2014 1st place was 2300, but making top 6 only required something like 1500. I think there were only two teams that got over 2000.

Officially the top score at MIT was a bit over 1600.
