Without seeing the foam offered by McMaster, it’s impossible to tell if it is identical in all ways. The decision will be made by the inspectors at the event. If the foam is critical to your design, I advise you to play it safe and go with the VEX foam.

it isnt money wise it is size wise
vex only has it in strips i wanted a sheet

I didn’t realize it was sold in sheets. This would definitely be illegal. If the two items are different sizes, they clearly are not identical.
