We had a pole that was the bottom 12 feet of a 14-160 we called the "Lil Monster". We finally defeated it.....It broke.

Now we just have the bottom 12 feet of a 15-180 called the "Big Monster"...absolutely NO bend, but great for stiff pole competitions.

2 of the boys on our team use these 2 poles occasionaly: one is 15' 190 and one is a 16' (huge!) 185, sooo we call the 15 footer SHERIFF and the 16 footer DEPUTY...cuz one of the boys used to sing this song ALL the time:

(bob marley) i shot the sheriff...but i did not shoot the DEPUTY"
haha :P

we have a pole that one jumper named the sterilizer because the first time he jumped on it he lost his grip with his top hand while it was bent and it left a mark diagonally across his body from his knee to his opposite shoulder.
