Pacer Carbon Mystic vs. ESSX Recoil

Unread postby dupre.taylor » Wed Apr 01, 2015 9:58 pm

Hello everyone,

In the process of budgeting to buy a bundle of new poles for a high school program. I have two vaulters jumping around 14' and need to get bigger poles. I am looking into a series of carbon poles and was wondering if anyone had any input on which was better: Pacer Carbon Mystic's or ESSX Recoil. I know that the ESSX Recoil's are a hybrid of sorts, but I personally have never jumped on either of these brands although I have jumped on Carbon FX and Altius Carbons before.

I'm looking for more technique/feel type of pros and cons more than pricing comparisons.

Thanks!

ESSX!!!!!!
get a good strong push off the top and they are very easy to roll over and penetrate.
a lot less work then pacers and a lot more pole then the altius which always felt weak to me
and they feel like running with a twig which is great.
