Best ball shooting contraption this year

Punchers are slower than both flywheels and catapults.

Change my mind. :slight_smile:

We’ve had a double puncher working for a few months now, pretty fun!

At our state championship we actually encountered 2 teams using double punchers, but it was pretty whack. One had two separate punching arms powered by two different motors, set at two angles. The other had the same thing, but two motors powered the same gear train th power the punching arms.

I don’t recall them actually pulling off the double shot however…

All the shooters have their pros and cons. A good double catapult could probably give everyone else a run for their money.

A good anything can give anything a run for their money, all comes down to driver skill and strategy.

Any good shooter can give any other good shooter a run for their money. At Worlds, specifics of the design are kind of irrelevant. It’s speed and accuracy. At this point, a lot of punchers, flywheels, and even at least one kicker can almost get up to 2BC speed.

Caps I feel like are going to be the deciding factor at worlds. Skyrise, everyone got so good at the pegs, that the posts started to become more and more relevant as the season went on. I can see the same with flags and caps

Eh. On my count only a single robot at worlds will prioritize caps (us).

Have you seen 6047S? They seem to have an efficient double shot puncher.

Electrostatic rail gun, of course!

The problem with a double shot puncher is it is basically a select-fire 2BC that uses two motors instead of one, but having the select fire is a decent advantage.
