Kicker Testing

Kicker testing continued today, after a series of mishaps with the arm last night.  We found that we could shoot well from midfield and poorly from either extreme with the current configuration.

We milled the kicker plate down by 1/8″ from it’s already shortened state to make it a total of 5/16″ shorter than designed.  With the new length we can now shoot extremely repeatably from midfield, well from anywhere in the far zone, and well from the back third of the home zone. 

Videos below demonstrate the kicker at various positions on the field. Any variations in kick distance are due to varying air pressure of the balls.
