Has there been any research quantifying hail damage to hops?

HI there,

I haven't seen a "cone damage index" for hail damage or anything like that. While we do get hail occasionally, it hasn't affected our hops yet. I guess it would be up to the buyer (brewer) whether they would be ok to purchase hops with hail damage.
