SportIdent E-Punch Finger Stick Vendors in the US:
There are several types of e-punch finger sticks, with different features:
|Notes:||Phased out of production at the end of 2008.||High punching speed -- three times as fast as the SI-5.||Faster than the SI-5 and SI-6. This is what RMOC purchased as rental sticks.||"The new standard. It is faster and better than all previous SportIdent cards." Extra punch capacity for ROGAINEs and other long events.|
References to one card being "faster" than another are in terms of milliseconds -- something most people won't notice. For most people, the more important feature to consider is the punch capacity if you do ROGAINEs, adventure races, and other long events.
RMOC's rental units are blue; if you buy your own, please buy any color other than blue.
