[FAQ]: Is String Legal?

Q: Can we use string on our VEX Clean Sweep Robot?

A: <R5> states: “Robots may be built ONLY from Official Robot Components from the VEX Robotics Design System unless otherwise specifically noted within these rules.” As it currently stands there is no string in the VEX product line. **<R7> **makes provisions for certain non-VEX parts, but there is no provision for string. Thus the use of string is not permitted. Teams who wish to use string like devices will have to exercise some creativity in their material usage.
