Brings back memories of my high-school career as a pole-vaulter. I learned with an aluminum pole (stiff) and partway through the season, got a fiberglass pole (flexy).

On my first vault with the glass pole, I cleared the bar by about two feet in a sitting position and landed (on hands and knees) about five feet behind the pit.

Not prepared for the extra power. Whoosh!
