Notes The 18th Competition, official name: 新SASUKE2007春 (literally New-Sasuke 2007 Spring), is the first tournament since Nagano Makoto's kanzenseiha in SASUKE 17. Like SASUKE 5, the course was significantly altered to increase the difficulty. However, the course and difficulty was so significantly altered that a new era of SASUKE was born, Shin-SASUKE (literally "New SASUKE"). For the sake of fairness, a 1200m run was conducted before the tournament allowing competitors to choose their own number. The new First Stage was much longer than previous tournaments, as the time limit was increased to 130 seconds, the longest in SASUKE history. Every obstacle in the First Stage was brand new. Because of the increased difficulty and unfamiliarity of the obstacles, the results in this tournament were vastly worse than previous tournaments as only six people cleared, the worst since SASUKE 10. Also, the mats were changed from black in color to red. In the Second Stage, only the Metal Spin returned, every other obstacle was new. The real killer was a new obstacle, the Salmon Ladder as it eliminated half of the six remaining competitors. The remaining three competitors cleared the new Second Stage to move onto the new Third Stage. Half of the Third Stage was brand new and it was a new obstacle, the Shin-Cliffhanger that eliminated the remaining three competitors. Nagano Makoto made it the furthest but got disqualified on the Shin-Cliffhanger, making it the shortest end to a tournament until that point.
