good luck with the new company. Now will you have to purchase the rights to your screen name? jk. and when can we start lookin for these newer poles? (although i doubt i'll be on anything bigger than a 15 anytime soon)
I have one of those old browning silaflex skypoles - found it behind a pool, was probly sittin there for 10+ years. now all its good for is tearin apart to make pv apparatuses as well as launching bottle rockets and mortars out of.

yeah i thought the intro to polevault was also rather cheesy...one of the quotes i remember hearing about the "physics of the polevault" is that "the more the pole bends, the higher the vaulter goes" or something to that effect. wonder where they got their information for the "physics of the polevau...
wow, that assertion sounds somewhat ignorant. how about this: rarely do winners disagree with the judges decision, and those losers that do disagree with the judges' decision do so sometimes fairly and othertimes as a poor sport only as an attempt to sound/look better. I know that often times I lost...
I'm just curious about anyone's experience studying abroad.

Pros and cons for 5 yr. (or more) versus 4 yr.? Because of my scholarship I'm gonna try to finish up in 4 years, as well as the fact that my twin brother (who Im visiting right now) is going to the USNA and really has no choice but to graduate in four years, I use those as reasons not to slack...pro...
how long have you been vaulting for? chances are not long enough to really know which brand fits you best. like others said, look through threads, play around on different poles, research the differences and find one that works for you. if there was one best pole then all the other brands would prob...
