The vault was progressing so fast at that point, that Pennel actually had a PR of 17'10 1/2" from just a few years after his barrier breaking 17-footer but he never held the WR again.

Nope. Kjell Issaksson of Sweden jumped a WR 5.55 (18-02 1/2) in Austin in...73? 74?.

I think it was in El Paso in 1972. I think Seagren cleared it too that day. It might have been higher, too.

It was 5.51.

The "official" progression:
5.51 18' 1" Kjell Isaksson Sweden Austin 8.4.1972
5.54 18'2" Isaksson Sweden Los Angeles 15.4.1972 5.55 18'2 1/2" Isaksson Sweden Helsingborg 12.6.1972
5.63 18'6" Robert Seagren USA Eugene 2.7.1972
