Flex Testing Poles
Flex testing poles is a very important step in the process of being a successful pole vaulter. It is important to know the exact stiffness of all your poles. The number on the poles is not always accurate. By measuring the poles you can know the exact pound change from pole to pole. You can also figure out the change in stiffness in going from one length to another. Often times when we check a vaulters series of poles, we find they have duplicate numbers or too big of gaps between poles. This is often the blockage to a jumper getting the next big height! Correcting this will help a vaulter be more efficient in their progression. Bring your poles with you to practice at our club and we will test them for you!
