Re: Dropping the lead knee - time for a retrospective?

I stand corrected! That's a nice grip, definitely wasn't thinking it was that high, the video makes the pole look relatively short. He is also moving the pole very well. Looking forward to seeing him jump 5.80m.

Re: Dropping the lead knee - time for a retrospective?

Once again, off topic, but I have some video from FISU in 2007 and Aleksandra Kiryashova takes off quite similar to Colwick with her "no knee drive". I uploaded her jumps onto youtube. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qlln_VL4N20

Re: Dropping the lead knee - time for a retrospective?

Sorry for getting off topic, but I was just wondering if anyone knows what size Pole Colwick is using? It doesn't seem to be very long, it looks like it is 15'6'', but I could be wrong. Although what he does with the pole is really awesome, it seems to me that he could have problems gripping 4.90 - ...

pvking99. I think you are right about Bubka being a great vaulter and using the "free takeoff", but you also have to remember that Bubka should have vaulted around 6.40m..not 6.15m. Therefore with Brad's speed, pole size, and his takeoff, which is very very good he will break the world rec...

Back to Jenn's result..which is now a little off topic. She wasn't the only one competing..and there wasn't anything questionable.

Ya, they do flex them on the same scale, but they're like .5 stiffer because you will most likely grip where you were gripping on the 5m pole. So he gripped like 4.90 on the 5m he would have to grip 5m on the 5.10 for it to be the exact same flex.

thanks for the info Becca, I know the Carbons are stiffer at the takeoff just wasn't sure if there was a difference in the flexes. My teammate went from a 5.10m 14.1flex UCS to a 5m 13.4flex carbon and said it was much stiffer. I was told that a 14.1 5.10m would be a 13.6 5m in UCS flexes which shou...

Flex Ratings UCS and Pacer Carbon

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knows what the difference in flexes are for a 5m Carbon versus a 5m UCS. I know that the Carbons are stiffer than the UCS poles of the same flex number, but does anyone know by how much??

Thanks
