I'm sure any pole would have broken pulling on it that much and especially if it was one of her softer poles.

Fist of all; since last year he had problems with jumping and didn't do good.
now he is back with Andrei t.
I think currently he is just not able to jump his regular poles.
also at the camp he is they have all the poles you can imagine of :)

His recent 580 was on carbon - so right pole for right level of fitness and training
Plant like crap sometimes ok most times

I can also guess he may have been on UCS because Gill is not currently making any carbon poles so he may not have any smaller carbons to choose from.
