Default Re: New USASF Rules Regarding Bows

I read this as 3” wide ribbon being the maximum size you can use, but I've had people say the 3” would be illegal. I was just wondering what's everyone take on this is?
I don't make cheer bows but based on what you quoted it says bows no wider than 3" which means 3" is the maximum considered acceptable. But it also says should not instead of a more definite wording like may not and goes on to say generally which makes it sound like depending on how the bow looks, larger than 3" may be acceptable as well. If this is a rule it is poorly worded. jmo
