Looking to borrow ~18.0 flex 15' carbon in Reno

Unread postby rainbowgirl28 » Tue Jan 16, 2007 9:15 pm

Not for me of course, for a high schooler I am coaching.

He has a 14'6" PR, so I am guessing HS Boys 2 or 3.

He got a little screwed on his pole series, ended up with a 170 that is an 18.9 flex and a 175 that is a 17.1 flex.

We were going to buy one to fill the gap, but it's going to end up being a short run pole and he won't have trouble making the gap soon. He was easily on the 18.9 at the meet last weekend and not running that great.

I was wondering if anyone at Reno had a 15' carbon that is around an 18.0 flex that he could borrow.

Thanks!

I'm going to have a 14'6" 180 there that might just fit that gap if he's not gripping to high. You are welcome to it if you think it will work. It will be the only pole I have there, so we will have to share if we compete at the same time.

He's only gripping about 14', so that would work, but unless you had it flexed on a 15' span, it would be hard for me to know how well it fills the gap.

Too bad my college guy is not coming, we need a pole about like that for him :)
