Re: Differences in Pole Brands?

Weight label and placement only matter to High School -- old farts like us can hold anywhere that allows us to get safely into the pit.

Re: The TAP at the top of the swing

"held the vault back for 20 years" -- is that the same thinking that has held numerous events back for a long time? High Jump! - Long Jump has one meet better than Mexico City -- maybe it is professional sports and how much that impacts the talent pool. This is supposed to be about exchang...

Re: Run Mechanics and Training Techniques

Give this a cheesehead try 1. Consistent - repeatable - If you come out hard and pushing or slow even walk in -- and you can not repeat consistently - it is a waste of time 2. Running cues I feel are a little more individualized -- a mid mark - but some peoples depth perception and ability to adjust...

Re: Differences in Pole Brands?

Depending on who you talk to this could be a short book Do a short version - four different companies make the poles you listed: UCS Spirit - s glass pole, widen the short side or top of the trapezoid (sail piece) to add stiffness - then mandrel size (bigger diameter) - very well established - consi...

Re: Physics Based Critique of the Petrov Method

These types of posts cause one to think- re-evaluate, agree, disagree - but that is what discussion is - not name calling - nice stuff

Re: Timing of the PULL

Seriously -- this sounds like who had the biggest pole conversation -- ok I will give this a shot - part time helper with HS kids -- try and teach them to be safe and enjoy I have never gotten to the point of every telling a kid or a master vaulter to pull -- usually have way to many things before t...

Re: opinions on box collars so far?

Month plus of indoor season -- ASTM vote on withdrawing the std in late Feb. -- other than the dimensional issue than manufacturer knows they need to address -- are people using them -- and if so if no one is talking about them -- any issues must be minor (measurement being a pain) Question -- is th...

Re: This is why the new box collar is more dangerous

Re: New Box Collar Rule Interpretation (USTFCCCA)

Agree with everything you said -- This is a manufacturer/NCAA issue to fix -- if you label that it complies it needs to comply - otherwise who is going to decide which parts need to be complied with -- the fact is the NCAA says it must meet the standard -- standard has specific dimensional requireme...

Re: This is why the new box collar is more dangerous

The standard was developed to add protection and give a minimum standard - dimensional requirements - impact attenuation - NCAA choses to require a collar that meets the standard -- and include the wings -- ok -- their option -- then use a collar that meet or complies with the standard -- if your de...
