    Thanks

    tis a silly rule?

    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 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! :confused:

    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.
