Angie Bamblett

Mechanical Designer. A mechanical engineer, Angie is the Battlebots rookie of the team. She’s designed and built MANY things, but Icewave 2015 was her first fighting robot. When she’s not neck-deep in CAD and calculations for Icewave, she works as a product designer for Double Robotics, Inc.

Andrew Adams

Production Specialist. Andrew’s robot fighting experience comes from FIRST tournaments in high school, where he liked to use strategy as much as steel to win. He’s the team all-rounder with a tool ready for any need.

Hector Saldana

Machining Specialist. Hector is a mechanical engineer who was involved in the early design of 2015 Icewave, though he wasn’t in the Tournament.

Alex Rosas

Team Handyman. Alex is a production technician at Double Robotics who was an invaluable extra pair of hands during the 2016 Icewave build. He helped out with any kind of task, from bolt-tightening to rewiring to careful application of foam.

God I just wish they did a grudge match by demand even if they didn't end up matched.

I say it would be difficult for Tombstone to get close enough to deal armor damage, not without Bill installing some sort of counter-torque mechanism to get in the blades of ICEwave as they spin back up.

i'm going with Icewave as Icewave's spinning bar, is at 54 inches (4.5 feet) long, tip to tip, is the largest weapon ever recorded in history of robot combat.

Wow. Which has more reach with their weapons? It looks like tombstone swings low enough to hot icewaves base before icewave can get tombstones chain.

Tombstone if only because Icewave has the worse record of breaking itself between the two.
