Millennium Series ROF cap in 2008
Following discussions with team owners last week and extensive consulting with
various gun/board manufacturers the MS will update the respective wording of rule
"11.01 Markers" to
- The first 3 shots must be semi-auto mode only.
- Markers will be limited to a ROF of 12 balls per second, defined as no two consecutive
shots may be timed shorter than 83ms apart (reading on ROF meter of 12.0 bps or
less = legal; reading on ROF meter of 12.1 bps or higher = illegal).
- Ramping of shots will be allowed only, once 6 bps has been achieved. Then the marker may ramp to 12 bps, but only as long the 6 bps is continually maintained. Once the trigger is stopped to be activated, only one single additional shot may
Clarification: the 6 bps for start/sustain ramping dose not need to be hit physically, it refers to the time delay between trigger activations, which must be at least the equivalent to 6 bps. So a marker may start to ramp up to 12 bps, if (after the first three shots being in semi-auto only) the time delay between 3rd and 4th trigger activation is less than 167ms.
