Anyone else notices that AndyMark is selling “Unofficial INFINITE RECHARGE Power Cell 2020 FRC Game Piece - Not FIRST Branded” https://www.andymark.com/products/infinite-recharge-power-cell#description instead of the usual FIRST branded ones. I know AndyMark had been out of Power Cells for a while, but since I been a part of FIRST, I have never seen AndyMark sell Unofficial game pieces.
In the product description, they say, “Product sold prior to January 30, 2020 is the official regulation game piece, and can be used in an official competition setting. Product sold on January 30, 2020 or later is functionally identical to the official regulation game piece, save for the logo printed on the surface. The size, shape, material, and compression properties are within the same tolerances. They are suitable for use in personal practice and testing, as well as in off-season events.”
I just found this interesting and wanted to see what you guys think. Also, how come AndyMark is the only company selling game pieces this year?
