    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the shock-attenuation characteristics of protective headgear for football.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F08 on Sports Equipment, Playing Surfaces, and Facilities, this test method was withdrawn in September 2017. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its lack of use by industry.
