    No heat Earl, maybe it's just my 'conservative thinking' but I would assume (now don't go there ) that spikes were removed from the ICFRA F/Tr Rules to bring them more in line the NRA F/TR rules. I suppose if you are growing your own rules you can have them anyway you want. Good Shooting Earl!

    D R you could be right but as stated by someone earlier good luck finding someone at the head office that knows enough about f-class and f t/r in particular to give the answer to why there is no mention of spikes. 20 X's and a good dog is all a man really needs. May you have both.

    doesn't matter anyway

    It dosen't really matter whether spiked pod feet are legal since there aren't any f class events with in a 400 mile radious of where I live anyway.
    If I want to get into competitive shooting I am going to have to pick a different discipline.

    Really. There are no NRA Prone or Palma events within 400 miles of where you live. Where exactly would that be, again?

    Generally speaking, most F-Class is shot alongside Prone/Palma matches. They were there first, put in the time/effort to get the land, set up the firing lines, the target pits, etc. and usually the High Power Rifle 'match director' for a club tends to be a sling-n-iron sight shooter (I may be one of the few exceptions - I shoot a little of both). As a result, you don't see many matches listed as 'F-Class' in match bulletins, or on state schedules. With very few exceptions, you should be able to shoot at matches listed as 'Prone' or 'Palma' or 'Fullbore', though.
