    I was told that by someone who is very knowledgeable in the technical details of T&F. But no, I don't have any 'official' sources to confirm it.

Since the advent of the "eagle eye", I have actually seen timid board judges refer to the camera before making every call.
      OK, please forgive my ignorance. 1) How tall is the 90 degree plasticine thing? 2) Suppose you are 6 inches over on your takeoff. Doesn't that thing sticking up hit the arch of your foot as your foot comes down and maybe cause an injury? Or is the plasticine thing entirely made of plasticine and therefore soft?

        Plasticine is a soft, putty-like substance screeded the length of the take off-board in a groove at a 45-degree angle to the height of the top surface of the plasticine tray. There is no danger to the foot. The vertical plane of the plastice simply reduces the likelihood of an upturned toe oveririding the foul line without touching the plasticine, as often happens. ,
