At this point in time, 15000g was "full weight" as well. However, score was determined by:

mass held/mass device + mass held/10
Is this going to apply to digital structures this year?

Hello everybody. Do the contact width lines only apply for the bottom portion of the Boomilever. By that I mean does the contact width line not matter for the J Hook part of the boomilever?

Rules 3.d and 4.e.III say that no part of the boomilever can touch between the contact width lines. The contact width lines also extend fully up the testing wall per 5.a.v. So I would say that the hook part of the boomi also can't touch the wall between the lines.

Wait but how does that work? if It's on the hook, then it's guaranteed to be in between the contact width lines, right?

But it's not touching the wall, it's touching the hook
It'll have to hang from the hook, so it's not the wall. All other parts will have to touch the wall for the boomi to carry the load.
