Nordic evolution vs pacer fx vs pacer mystic carbon

Unread postby PoleVaultStipke » Fri Feb 05, 2016 11:39 am

Hi guys,

If I open a discussion which has already been settled, please forgive me and guide me in the right direction.

My (young) athletes have been jumping with pacer fx up untill now. I was looking into pacer mystic carbon for the girls who are starting on 4meter poles. However they are not cheap. That made me look into Nordic evolution poles and due to the high dollar, they are actually cheaper than the normal pacer fx poles here in Belgium.

This gave me the idea to use pacer fx (since we already have a lot) up untill 4m and nordic evolution for longer ones.

What do you think are the flaws in my plan?
What are your experiences with Nordic Evolution? Durability? Bending/kick at the top?

Thank you for sharing guys!

Greatness is build one step at a time!

Most Americans don't have experience with recent Nordic poles, they haven't had good distribution here in America. Hard to justify the extra cost of importing them when we have four good manufacturers here! Most people here have never used them, but maybe you'll get lucky and one of our international members can help you :)
