Sawblades at 30lb class do not cause kinetic hits, but they do at insect the insect level. (Hyper Ninja for example)

We actually did allow saws originally a few years ago, then we argued over it, and then we banned them.

Ah, interesting. I'm sure that's somewhat dependent on the number of teeth though? Perhaps we could allow them with a TPI restriction or something?

I think if you dig through the delphi post you will find the discussion on it, I think we decided to just keep it simple and ban teeth rather than try and determine a limit.

Its so weird, sportsman class is supposed to be *no* spinners and pushers and the only robots people want to build are spinners and pushers (lifters). :P

Well I thought it would be kind of neat to have a kilobot that could also maybe compete as a beetle with some bolted on armor and a heavier weapon. But the idea I had in mind for that was a spinner. So yeah.
