Is there any sophiscated measuring tools used for the UKSF tournament casting court?

Do you use lasers(Like those land surveyor equipment) or measuring tape?

Regards

Edmund,

The UKSF use a staic court with fixed cross lines. These cross lines are fixed at the mid point to give 4 chords to each arc. Each cast is measured back to the next cross line.
If in the vent of a record cast the measurement is taken back to the oche and the line is checked.

We are looking into the possibility of purchasing a suitable Electronic measuring device, though after speaking to a daily user these do have the odd problem. :(

So for the current events we are using are tried and tested method.

Sportcast USA uses the electronic measuring device. tempeture and low light effect it at times but it is very accurate. In the right hands it gets the job done pretty quick.
