Weight Class

Once you’ve decided on what type of design you want to build, you also need to decide on what weight class you want to enter. This is dependent on which competition you are going to enter, since each competition will only choose a few of the weight classes that they will allow to compete in their competition. Typically most competitions now I notice don’t have weight classes larger than the 30lb featherweight, and a lot also offer competition for the 12lb hobbyweight which is what most people enter. The full range of weight classes can be seen below. Notice also that certain weight classes are for high schools, meaning only high school students can enter those weight classes.
