Pololu ball caster

The Pololu ball casters are rated for a robot that weighs a couple pounds. I’m building a sumo robot that will weigh under 2 lbs, but I want it to start the match standing on it’s end. It would then fall onto the caster, with about half or less of its weight.

My question is, can these ball casters take that kind of beating? Or would they break?


I don’t think they would break, but you would have to try it and see.
