SPARC 30Lb Sportsman Spinning Limits
« on: August 17, 2015, 08:14:41 pm »
Hi Guys,

I have had a few queries recently regarding the 400RPM limits on spinning weapons. One of the older versions of the NERC rules had < 500 SFM which is a bit harder to work out but limits the diameter people can use.

I was wondering if any other EOs have had to deal with people attempting to build 400rpm 4 feet diameter blades?

Closest I've seen was in the sportsman rumble a few years ago, bot wasn't in the regular bracket but I don't recall the reason-

As far as I know, it's not been a problem yet.

Current discussion on our forum. I think SFM would make it easier instead of having to try and decide what fits in the spirit of the class
