In the picture below is a pre-cut closed cell foam that someone wants to put in their Opti instead of grip tape:
I can't find anything in the class rules that would prohibit it. It's permanently afixed with a sticky back so can't be removed after measuring. Is this allowed?
The class rule 18.104.22.168 a) states clearly "...patch of anti-slip PAINT.."
So only a painted patch may be applied.
The sticky tape you refer to is also not permitted.
