Re: Progression of poles

My understanding is that the flex number is a measurement of how much the pole bends (usually in cm) when supported at both ends (exact point of support, I don't know) and a weight (50lbs?) hung from the middle. In more useful terms, manufacturers have decided that within each pole length series, a ...

Re: pole transitions (grip)

Skyfly, I think you're hung up on trying to match the "weight" of the pole to the weight of the vaulter. Though it may be hard to do, due to the HS rule of not being allowed to use a pole rated under the vaulter's body weight, erase that double meaning from your mind. Call the pole weight...

Perhaps the issue is high school vs. college? It's just my guess, but I think the mfrs and retailers want to minimize inventory and not have to inventory every flex of pole for every length. And the HS budget can also only have a certain number of poles per length - one for every 5 pound weight inc...

Re: Looking for 13'135 and 140 green skypole or similar

Both poles are skypoles. Flex on the 13' 135 is 22.4 and the 13'6 130 is 24.8.

I'd be willing to trade or sell. What poles do you have available? Otherwise I would say for cost 200 each or 350 for both.

I have a 13' 135 and a 13'6 130 (so basically the same as a 13' 140) available. Located in MIchigan.
