GBN Electromagnetic Motor for Ultimate Field


Recommended Posts

Played a game on the Ultimate with the GBN motor.


Had to put blocks under the feet for clearance, but that's not an issue.

I didn't realize it when I ordered the motor, but it just sticks with magnets, so it super easy to try out different positions.  Tried it in the corner of the endzone, which worked fine, and also along the sideline at the 50 (what we played the game with).  I'm not sure if the sideline was better than the endzone placement, as the men ran fine with either position.

But I will say it was good improvement over the two Tudor motors I had under there before.  Well worth the $.  I already have two push-button switched extension cords (needed with the GBN) that I made so we could leave the switches turned on on the old Tudor fields.  Basically, I screwed a momentary switch between the prongs of one extension cord (using the holes in the prongs) and spliced the other end into the hot wire of a second extension cord, making a dogleg.

Played a second game with the GBN motor vs another coach.  We were very impressed with how well the Ultimate board runs with it.

Thinking Tudor might want to add this motor as an option when purchasing, along with some leg extensions (or just taller legs to start)?
