Can any one tell me what the maximum legal depth of a FT sitting cushion is?
4inches when pressed flat between two boards If I remember correctly
Yep 4 inches. but it does not state how wide the board is.
tis a silly rule?
its not a rule i have ever seen enforced.
I presume it is more of a guidline? Make sure people dont turn up with arm chairs?
was enforced in hungary
but not in uk or italy?
Does anyone actually know why 4 inches was chosen, and between two boards as apposed to the shooter sitting on the seat?
I'm guessing the two boards will always give an accurate measurement, no real way of telling with the shooter sitting on the bag.
I just feel sorry for anything you sit on Gary!!!
I trust it say's the board have to be parallel to each other, if not and the boards are tapered (however wide) it means nothing as you could force the beanbag through!
I have only just got into hft myself but have been told that the max depth is 4" for the bag, but I must agree that it seems to be a bit relaxed to put it kindly.
