Nice jump! :yes:

You looked a little in at takeoff, the pole was already in and loaded before you were off the ground. That looked to be the only thing i could really see.

Side note: I wish i could swing and get inverted that well. haha :yes:

Fun, good show, nice jump.

I think when you get around the pole and get in line with it and are ready to start your pull through you could be a little bit more crisp with the arms...

You throw the head back a little bit more than I would like, but you make up for it by getting in line with the pole really well... So... I would like to see you keep your head tucked so you can see the bar a tick longer until you start to get in line with the pole... I'm not that concerned most advanced vaulters eyes move as they jump so you probably are seeing the bar for longer that what I am seeing in this jump...

nice jump bro.
