shots, but directs them into the pocket. The Teeth on the
scoop work great too, acting to secure, and then spin the ball
into the pocket on rakes. The throat has multiple nodes for
extra grip, and rails to stop rotation.

According to John A. Endler the camouflage effect is a function of "disruptive
coloration." High contrast markings, just like the Orange and White on the
Fort7i, which are contrasted again when standing in front of goal.
"Disruptively colored elements distract attention and break up the body outline,
making detection difficult." (Stevens & Cuthill 2006).
A study by Schaefer & Stobbe shows that Disruptive Coloration works by
'exploiting predators cognitive mechanisms of prey recognition."
(2006 The Royal Society)
Dr. Martin Stevens, a Zoologist at the University of Cambridge in Great Britain,
kindly took the time to elaborate on the camouflage effect in a letter to Tribe7,
stating that "the markings or stripes also make it difficult to judge speed,
because the high contrast markings interfere with motion perception."
Competitive Bottom Line: the Fort7i's "disruptive coloration" is an
effective means of confusing the visual system, serving to disrupt a shooter's
vision, especially when moving in front of the similarly contrasted lacrosse goal.
