Re: Poles For Sale

Per order... costs the same to ship one pole or ten. Delivery zip code is the biggest cost criterion. Cheaper to ship to a school or business address.

Poles For Sale

Sorry for the formatting... don't know how to paste an Excel Spread into this forum and retain spacing and formatting. The cost to buy these poles NEW from their respective manufacturer is listed for comparison with the "Lone Star Price" on the far right, which is our sale price. Used pole...

Re: Weighing vaulters....

If we really want to enforce a weight rating rule, try doing it to Master's Vaulters... with few "elite" exceptions, I'm willing to bet more than 50% or more compete or at least train with pole rated under their body weight. How many master's deaths are reported each year in pole vaulting ...

Re: Weighing vaulters....

whats everyones opinion on holding down (maybe about a foot from the top) on a pole that could be 3-5 pounds lower than the vaulters weight, just as a transition to start working onto longer poles. Often, and I know in my case, i'll move up length when im vaulting on poles 20lbs over my weight. Ill...

Re: Weighing vaulters....

The only way to get rid of the weight rating rule it to mandate all schools and event officials pass a pole vault certification test to ensure they know the proper procedures for an athlete using the right size pole. I think any pole vault coach should atleast have the basic knowledge of how to wat...

Re: Weighing vaulters....

OR... pass a rule that actually makes sense and works to enhance safety?!?! THANK YOU JAN! I HIGHLY endorse this new rule proposal as a common-sense and low-cost approach to increasing safety in the pole vault. If you're not aware, 3 vaulters were killed in practice and/or meets in 2002 while pole v...

Re: Weighing vaulters....

Don't like that one? How about this instead... What do the following poles have in common? 11'5 80 11'6 110 11'6 120 11'6 127 They all hit the same exact flex on my flex machine. What's the difference? The way each company rated them because they are all of a different manufacturer yet they all flex...

Re: Weighing vaulters....

Question: What do a 10' 150, 10'6 140, 11' 130, 11'6 120, 12' 110, and 12'6 100 have in common? Answer: They're all the same pole. Well, not exactly, but if you were to flex test all of those poles on the same scale, they could theoretically all have the same flex number (ie: stiffness). What does t...
