Re: Getting inverted

I Land pretty deep using either pole but a little bit deeper using the 13ft one.

Any tips on how to get inverted on the 13ft pole then?

Re: Getting inverted

Only the diameter of the pole feels bigger, otherwise everything else feels very short

Getting inverted

Hey guys, I'm having some trouble getting inverted. I used to get 12ft on a 13ft Spirit, but it became mushy and all I had left to use was a 12ft 140lb pacer.

Bubka Kisses Crossbar?

My friend told me that Bubka once cleared the crossbar so high that he was able to kiss the crossbar on the way down.
Told me he saw it in an old video of him.
I was wondering if anybody had it?

Re: Pole Transition

This topic has been dead for awhile and I would like to bring it back because i have new circumstances.
I recently found a 150lb Pacer 13ft in our shed and I was curious if that would be a better pole to use to transition from my 13ft 125lb spirit to my 14ft 130lb spirit?

Re: Whats the Tape rule?

Re: Whats the Tape rule?

I thought it was odd to.
I've done it before and nobody seemed to have a problem.
I've also seen other vaulters do it.
So if the rule is no tape then doesn't that mean no wrist sweatband and or forearm protector?
