Scored a 19+9 in practice at 13m that’s my personal best

No not on camera unfortunately. But I’m one step closer to the elusive 20+10.

The question is, does the 20+10 have to be done with a blank diana? or should a small central dot be permissible?

I'm in favour of the latter, but it definitely makes it easier to get. (despite it still not being at all easy Wink)


I bet if we all stopped using those cursed tennis balls, and used glandes instead, 20+10 would be on video in no time.  Grin

I think we should test this… multiple slingers, two rounds of 50 shots at 13m on blank dianas and…let’s say a 6cm center dot (about the size of a tennis ball).  That’s a total of 200 shots per slinger, and blank vs dots should alternate

… let’s also test the “tennis balls stink” theory… how about same test but with tennis balls vs cricket balls on the target of choice?

I think that's a great idea NOOC.  It'll be a little bit before I can do it, but I'll definitely contribute a data point.

I might do an ice ball vs. tennis ball for my round though.  Smiley

Anything that’s significantly denser than a tennis ball should be fine. Cricket balls are not as easy to find as tennis balls here. Ice balls are probably a better idea all around.

Ideally I would want to test a 65g tennis ball vs a 65g steel or lead glande, but I’m ok with changing both mass and density and still calling it “science”

also… flip a coin to decide which variable you start with so there’s less chance for bias based on the order.

What is a blank diana?

A diana that has nothing on it.  A blank plate.

The test is to see if a score will be higher if the diana has a smaller focus point.  NOOC suggested a 6 cm dot.  So you would do the round once with a blank diana, and again with diana that has a 6 cm dot in the middle.
