Used beginners pole

Postby pgafitseal » Mon Feb 28, 2005 6:59 am

I am looking for a good used pole for my son. He is starting vaulting (7th grade)and we are on a limited budget. If you can help with this matter, please contact me (pgafitseal@aol.com). Thank you

Any 10' pole will do, because he should not be in a position to use the bend of a pole yet. Teach him the fundamentals of the 'straight pole' swing now and he'll be way ahead of the game next year, when he would be old/big enough to bend a pole. If all else fails use an aluminum pipe with a butt plug attached. When my daughter was an 8th grader I began her on a 8' PVC pipe!

Try www.polepeddlers.com

Nope, I'm not coming back as a veteran pole vaulter (I could HJ higher than I could PV) - was looking on Becca's, "I'm in charge", site to see if there were pics/videos of Burgess' 6m jump.
