Re: pole transitions (grip)

Agreed, having a flex chart would also be very helpful. You would satisfy the weight label people and flex number folk. I am sure Bryan probably gets these sort of questions from a buyer at least once a week.

Charts showing how poles relate to each other by using lbs is not helpful at all. Flex numbers are what gives you information. Relating it to how it impacts your grip would be more useful. And just moving up your grip on a bending pole just to raise it, doesn't make much sense to me. It's not a rigi...
