quick pole progression question

if you're using 11-6 120lbs, clearing 10-6 in getting deep penetration and the pit. Is a better pole progression at 11-6 130 lbs, or a 12 130lbs? also is it true that the flex rating for 12 130 is the same as 11-6 120

So we should be placing blame on the officials, I like that idea. Most of the time in Missouri they are 60 year olds with limited pole vault experience but have a power trip that needs to be filled. Just look at the rule of the weight labels on the poles if you wanted to you could but any label to w...
