He had just WALKED over 2.05 with the scissor along with everyone else in the comp that day. It was kind of a challenge to them all after Hollis Conway did it. It was a thing to behold. I pulled him over as he came off the pit and I asked him as I was laughing, "Patrick, how high have you scissored?"
To that he smiled and replied, "2.15." I had also heard along the high jump superhighway that Carlo Thranhardt and Dietmar Moegenberg could also scissor 2.15. Seriously he cleared it by heaps.
And there's more. In all my coaching and jumping I have found that there is about a 30-35 cm difference between what you can scissor and what you can flop, IF you have taken the time to become proficient at the scissors. It works with High Schoolers who have learned the flop from the scissors (There's no other way really), and it works up to the highest levels.
