Re: Beginners vaulting in Sacramento - ideas please!

Try the Pacific Association USATF website for USATF clubs that offer pole vaulting in the Sacramento area. I believe Kurt Roth has a club at Granite Bay HS. If not I am sure there are others. (http://www.pausatf.org ....... click into clubs) Check with the contact names listed for each club to find ...

Re: Pole question

Something you might want to try which will give you a close answer but not definitive unless you jump both poles.

Re: Pole Comparison???

I have athletes that switch back and fourth very comfortably between Mystic and Spirit in the smaller sizes and cannot tell the difference. At least they have never verbalized that to me. The Mystic will allow a little higher grip because of the band placement but that would be the only deciding fac...
