That’s what we had before. I think I’ve got a video.

By the way, how does your hood fold down so that the curve does not go above spec? I have been having trouble with that.

A lot of teams tuck the hood into the top indexer, but my team’s hood is too long for that. The way we did it was to directly connect our hood to our backboard so that they fold in and out together. The whole thing is folded down and then the dangling rubber bands you see in the picture are hooked onto the lowest indexer to hold everything in place until the indexer spins.

Al right guys, I solved it! I took @RandomKidOnAVexTeam 's advice and slowed it down. I saw that the edge guards were stopping the ball, and by looking at other reveals that used c channel as the hood, I saw that most of them were using it flat side down. So I basically just listened to your advice… then went off and did my own thing, and found the right angle with a flat hood. Here it is!
