Nylon Net/Screen?

I’m a beginner and haven’t been to a competition once.
But I saw some people in youtube used Nylon Net/Screen on their Vex.

Is that really legal?


If you mean Anti-Slip Mat (http://www.vexrobotics.com/mat-g.html), then yes it is legal. Vex produces it, and I believe that if it is the same as the anti-slip mat that Vex produces (even if it is bought somewhere else) it is legal. Correct me if I’m wrong on that last part.

Competition rules dictate that products identical to those sold by VEX are legal in competition. It does not need to be black; it has been answered on the Q&A (a bunch of times) that white, red, purple, chartreuse, glow-in-the-dark etc. anti-slip mat made of the same (close enough that nobody can tell) material may be used. Any material, of course, is allowed for other non-functional purposes.

Yeah that’s what I thought - thanks for clearing it up.

In that case, Winsome, you can find anti-slip mat anywhere - Target, Walmart, etc.
