An inconsistency between SHOTPlus™ and BlastIQ™ with regards to the handling of 'Wet States' for the application of 'Wet' Charging Rules has been identified. Users should be aware of the following:

When using Graphical Charging Rules in SHOTPlus™, holes are considered 'Wet' for the application of Wet Charging Rules when the measured amount of water exceeds the 'Wet State' tolerance for the particular Hole Type. However, once charging rules are exported to BlastIQ™ a hole is considered wet when the measured amount of water is > 0.

This inconsistency will be rectified in upcoming releases of SHOTPlus™ and BlastIQ™ Mobile. Until rectified, SHOTPlus™ will display a warning message when exporting to BlastIQ™ with rules that may be affected by this inconsistency.

This inconsistency does not impact users who are using traditional charging rules.
