The puncher is the meta, and the angle adjuster won’t be rare at Worlds.
But 2BC FTW!

Ripp i meant to click DC but clicked fw instead ;-;

What about a trebuchet? On a tour, an adult asked us why we were using flywheels instead of a trebuchet. That was a fun explanation. As such, I am inclined to say that a “flinger” as a trebuchet is the best ball shooting contraption, as it would definitely win an award for creativity.

Flywheel with adjustable hood seems pretty op. Remember 169 at WPI? They were looking pretty darn good if you ask me :wink:

waiiiit hold up were they really adjusting their hood? i didnt even realize!!! that would explain what set them so far apart. I had heard rumors about adjustable hoods but wasnt aware anyone was using them. wow

Punchers are less maintenance and keep their power consistent, but if you can get a nice flywheel you can combine it with a vision sensor (or ultrasonics if you are a madlad) and shoot from anywhere on the field and have it hit.

Double puncher. Plans in the works.
