Is anyone using locked omnis? If so why/where?

Is any one using locked omnis? Our team is using them for a stand in for high traction and we prefer them to high traction. Also if you are using them comment why/where.

You’re making a good move here. Locked omnis, while they are much harder to make than a high trac, are actually gripier due to greater surface area in contact with the field. I’m currently running a six wheel omni drive with the middle wheels locked. In addition to skirting, this design is quite hard to push.

How well do you turn with locked front and back? Why didn’t you lock the middle?

Just realized that typo. I locked the middle, not the front and back. I’ll edit that now. Locked front and back would NOT turn well.
