2014 PSP Bunker Kit Example Snake Design

2014 psp bunker kit example design

Hopefully, by now everyone has seen the new 2014 PSP bunker kit. If you haven’t, here’s a quick run down. For 2014 the PSP is: removing the four snake elbows, and replacing them with two additional snake beams, and adding two new “wing bunkers.”

However, the photograph provided by the PSP doesn’t really give context to how these new bunkers will work, in conjunction with the current snake. The wing appears to be a race bunker that is squared off on one side. With the addition of this larger bunker and the additional snake beams, the snake looks like it will be easier to reach, and the larger surface area should improve player survivability. You should see a lot of creative layouts with these new additions. Adding length to the snake brings it closer to the backline and gives snake players more options of where to pop up to get an effective cross field shot.

The graphic above displays how these new bunkers could be used in a traditional snake layout, while also giving you a reference to use your imagination as to how these could potentially be used. Hopefully, we will be treated to more complex snake layouts this season.

So far, snake players on the professional level seem excited about the change. Also, with no snake side coaching this season for the professional division, it will be nice to see what the experts can accomplish with the larger playground that the PSP has provided.

PSP and SupAir will be unveiling a few sample layouts soon, so let’s see what they have in mind with the new bunker kit.

    Why is it not facing inwards? It’s just giving you less coverage from the middle/dorito side of the field and it would make more sense to have the angled portion inside so you can have a little window to shoot from. This better be the setup only for Dallas.

      Did you entirely miss the part about NOT AN OFFICIAL DESIGN i.e. some random dude made it?

      He also made it not to scale – the wings are way bigger than they should be.

        That is correct, this is not an official design. And Synyster, good
        observation. That would keep the cross field shots. After I drew this up
        i thought of 50 other uses for the wing, but I really just want to show
        you guys what it looks like with the added beams in play. Context is
        nice.

        They are to scale. They are exactly the same width as the
        race bunkers, but the 3d perspective makes the closes wing look
        extremely large. The overhead view gives you the best reference for each
        bunker size.

        Thanks for the comments, guys!

        don’t try and explain perspective to Synyster…

    as long as its not as big as putting an actual Dorito in front of the snake, I think its a great idea.
