Rocket Poles are similar to Skypoles, but a bit less expensive.
A High School Favorite – the Rocket is great for High School Vaulters because its small diameter is easy to grip and the pre-bend helps penetration into the pit.
The Rocket bends a bit slower than a Pacer or Spirit pole, yet unbends powerfully, which is a comfort to a newer, less experienced vaulter.
Note: A pole MUST be rated at or above a jumper’s weight. (For Example – if your vaulter weighs 119, they must us be using a pole that is a test weight of 120 or more).
