The running of the Tobacco Road Marathon in North Carolina on Sunday 18th March was a great success for organisers and athletes alike.
FS Series timed the event using ULTRA and were absolutely “over the moon” with the performance of their RFID Race Timing system. Jason Biggs with FS Series reported that they used Short Dipole tags with the Ultra.
“Worked like a Charm! We double tagged and it’s probably the best timing race we have done.”
Andrew Peterson from RFID Race Timing was not surprised. “I think the UPM short dipoles (M4) are superior to the Aliens so perhaps this explains better results. Some initial reports also say that the latest Viper M4 from UPM is even better.” Word has it that the Viper M4 is hard to get, however initial results from some timers in Europe are fantastic.
RFID is committed to researching new tags as they become available to the market. As soon as we get our hands on these tags we will compare their performance against the current tags available.
