Re: Video review-all suggestions welcome!

The thing that jumps out to me this one jump in your video is that you are way under and getting swept off your feet as a result. With a 12' grip, your take off should be about 9'. You took off at about 8' - a whole foot under. You can't jump up when you are that far under, and you also can't get a ...

Re: New pole

Thanks for posting the video - it offers additional clues for us to offer advice. 1. Stick with this pole, and grip. It's working fine for you now. You are not over-bending it, so it is not too "soft" for you. 2. Your video reminded of another recent thread - you have the same/common issue...

Re: New pole

Yes, it does help to know your height, weight, PR, and grip height. From your description, it sounds like this new pole is a much bigger pole than the others you have jumped on. From the sound of it, I'm going to assume that the other 160/170 poles you say you can jump with while holding at 13' - ar...

Re: Pits sliding on floor / underlayment

Disclaimer - I've not tried this myself, so I don't know how well (or if) it will work. Here's a thought - you know those thin rubber gripper pads that are used under area rugs/runners to keep them from slipping on floors? You'd need several of them, but it might work. Also - run-throughs tend to mo...

Re: FiberSport PorTaPit Black Poles

How old? Probably 20 yrs or so. Good Poles? It depends on your purpose. Unless they have a weight label that meets the national HS rules, you won't be able to use them in meets. You said they are very heavy - that tells me that they are likely "Training Poles". FiberSport Training poles we...

Re: Wraps for poles

Packing Tape is very similar to what they originally used for wrapping the poles. Lots of colors & patterns available. Just do a search for packing tape - you'll have many sellers to choose from. Or, go to your local office supply store, Wal-Mart/K-mart/Target, or home improvement/hardware store...
