We're in the process of drafting rules for a new Ultrastock/NIC grade group and I'd like to follow the paradigms set by amra/apoc on banning painful tips. I want to get some community feedback on what people have thought about these new Worker (gen 1 and 2) and Z-waffle pattern plastic rounds if you've had the chance to experience them in your wars. Do you think they hurt as much as hard vinyl tips?
The worker rounds are a hard black rubber, a bit harder than ACC silicon, but softer than true vinyl. The Z-pattern waffles, while having some flex joint, seem to be a type of hard plastic (feels almost more rigid than vinyl rounds).
