Re: Old FiberSport pole

Thanks Kirk! I was lurking most of the time - had nothing to say, so keep my mouth shut. :-) As you can see in my profile Władysław Kozakiewicz is my favorite vaulter and he was jumping on Bruce's Fiber Sport poles. This is the first time ever I put my hands on one Fiber Sport pole. It's 4.60m (15')...

Re: If you do what you've always done...

Re: If you do what you've always done...

Re: Straight pole grip height?

Is there a formula or equation that relates to how high you can grip straight poling to how high you can hold with a normal bent pole? Example: If you can hold 12' straight poling, what could be a max grip height with a bent pole? Could it be factored by multiplying by a given number like 1.2 or 1....
