In mid-2017, RoboCup updated it's design by adding three ribs as reinforcements to the clamping jaws making them 55% more durable based on 3D strength analysis. This area was identified by our team as the Achilles Heal of RoboCup so we reacted to the useful market feedback and made this high stress area much more robust.
The bottom end caps also have new tooling and the threading is now perfected after many attempts to make it reliable and ergonomic. The threading is now 3X thicker for durability and is easier to use.
RoboCup is a constant work in progress and we are confident the recent updates are two big steps forward.
