wolf, your correct on both counts. I'm not 100% sure but I think they were banned for safety reasons and perhaps they might have just been a little better than the USA's competitors.

the safety reason being, that the piston tube which might be made out of fiberglass, kevalr or carbon fiber that's 2-3 ft onlg might bounch off somebodies head.
