Does a v5 claw hold the new game balls?

My team was going to use a v5 claw to grab the balls but I need to know if the claw will hold them.

I’ve seen them hold a TT cube but barely. I doubt they will work for the new game balls. Also please pick thread categories more accurately, V5 is not a part of VEXIQ


No I suggest that if you want to use a claw make your own. Otherwise if you want to be very competitive I suggest trying to build a snail bot/hood boy. There is many forum and YouTube videos showing them which will help you out a lot.


or you could just not make a claw lol

i’d recommend you watch some reveal videos on youtube, try cadding some, to see how other teams do stuff this year; experiment, research, and prototype. it’ll help a lot more in the long run than simply asking basic questions on the forum when the same answers could be found by a little experimentation. it’s part of the fun after all : )


No, but some clever standoff moves it will.


This is the IQ forum. You will get better feedback in the proper forum.

No the V5 Claw doesn’t work for this year. Like the others said, if you want to be competitive either build a hood bot or this years tray bot.
But, if you team wants to build something with instructions for it I would build Crunch (it’s on the vex website).
Also this topic isn’t Vex IQ related
