A Bright Spot!!
I did make 12' three times easy but I went in and got my first 14' 1" (4.30m) pole and came out and started over with my 2, 4, & 6 step take offs. Shockingly I could get into the pit on it comfortably from 6 steps only gripping down about 6" (15 cm) from where I would start with a crossbar. So I used a bigger pole and a longer run because it felt safe.
I didn't want to risk getting hurt but I needed to know what pole and run I would start on in Reno. The first 14' 1" from 8 steps (43'). It was a bit of a risk but I know that my biggest 13' 1" is a little bit bigger than my first 14' 1" so I took the calculated gamble. Nice day, I'm not hurt, and I'm as good as I will be for Reno. Not where I was last year but technically a little more controlled even if the poles are smaller and the runs are shorter. Time to have some fun. WHEW!!! Thanks for being here! Bubba
