Gill Mean Green Skypole Vaulting Pole
This is the Gill Mean Green Skypole Vaulting Pole. This is a product of the company, Gill Atheltics, which produces several vaulting poles of the same name (Mean Green Skypole). However, this one has some distinguishing factors, the main one being the length of the pole. More on this below.
This pole is 14 feet in length (approximately 4.26 meters). This makes it the second longest of the Mean Green Skypoles on this website (the longest one being the 15 foot Skypole). This vaulting pole was designed mainly for high school pole vaulters. To cater for such vaulters, the pole has a double spiral wrap. Also, the position of the sail piece has been lowered. These features are aimed at improving the pole vaulting experience for the athlete. An example of how it does this is it enables the pole to bend with greater ease, and to “roll over” more smoothly.
