According to the World Field Target Federation rule 1.4 no other equipment may be used than the ones mentioned in rule 1.4. ( http://www.world-field-target-federation.com/core-rules )
The digital sidewheel is not mentioned and to me it seems that this means it is not allowed to use it in matches organized under WFTF rules.

In my humble opinion we (or the BFTA and WFTF) should stop the ratrace for more equipment and stick to rule 1.4 and allow no other equipment.

I also think we should ban olympic or ISSF style shooting jackets from FT shooting. The ISSF is very busy to stop the ever increasing stiffness of coats and pants. The shooters are protesting, but almost every year the ISSF rules go toward less thicknes and stiffness. More in the direction of normal clothing.
To keep our sport fit for the future and accessible to more shooters we should aim to reduce the cost and amount of equipment used. The increasing popularity of HFT shows that many shooters are not aiming on loads of gadgets and equipment.
To keep a level playing field for FT shooters not able or willing to spend a lot off money it would be wise to reduce the costs to be spent on additional equipment like olympic/ISSF style shooting coats.

Default the onslaught of new stuff

in reply to the previous post. i would never purchase such a device due to the price at moment. if in the future the cost reduces to a level that i would be prepared to pay, and that is the crux! then why not.
if a competitor turns up with one of these i would not complain. their chosen kit. as to shooting jackets/gloves same applies. in your world we should all be naked and throw stones. catapults would give an unfair advantage.
you cannot stop development or the want for it. i bet you go to work or go sopping in a car, is that not technology? or do you use a horse?

The rules also don't say you're allowed to have a sidewheel fitted to your scope or a 50ft adapter - so lets see those coming off

If this is the case then everyone should be shooting open sight TX's of no value great than £57.

As far a I can tell the DSW with give you no advantage whatsoever, if it does only move in 1yd incerements after 45yds it's less accurate than a physical pencil mark on a wheel.

I started a poll about the use of Olympic style shooting jackets in FT. Let me hear what you think and your arguments pro or contra.
(PS: I have an Olympic style jacket myself, but I'd like to see them banned for FT-shooting)
