Hands slipping

Unread postby rswiser » Tue Feb 21, 2017 9:02 pm

I just created an item that keeps the grip-end of the pole-vaulting pole warm and dry until the vaulter is on the runway. It is reinstalled to the pole after the jump is completed. If the grip end of the pole gets wet, this item also works as a dryer. Check it out at polesok.com

That device looks pretty cool (actually, warm)!

I like that it's not an electronic gadget and is easy to deploy.
