High bars for sale?

Hey I remember seeing a high bar at Reno last year that some company was selling that was all metal construction and was on wheels, but I can't seem to find it online. I really want to order one and if anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: The location of the take off point in fiberglass pole vaulti

DJ great posts, I again will say I don't understand what David B. is advocating and I asked on a previous post an important questions. I would like to know what David B. think that the advantage a fiberglass pole has over a stiff pole (bamboo, aluminum)? The answer to this question may be very revea...

Re: The location of the take off point in fiberglass pole vaulti

DJ I was actually asking about what david bussabarger wants coaches to think. I feel like I am on the same page with you and Alan. I just don't understand what Bussabarger is trying to say, or if he's just trying to stir the pot.

Re: The location of the take off point in fiberglass pole vaulti
