On Walkers winning jump does he pull the pole out of the box and have to shake it off his hand? Reminds me of some of the old gasket sealer days.
Winners find a way to win, losers find an excuse.

I was there and he did that on a few jumps. Once it stuck real good. He uses plenty of stick-um for sure.

Yup! I asked him about it after the meet, he said the rain made the Super77 tack up a little more than expected. If it's like that in London, he now knows to retape the pole sooner!
