So, because I feel Im to old and uncool to follow what is trendy (28), but still like progressing my skills in the park as well, I went to a shorter poll. It still gives me the stability in the steeps and deeps, but doesn't get in the way as much during spins, rails and such. Also I tighten the straps to my palms infront of my thumbs so I have 4 free fingers for grabs. Works pretty well. But I did notice people hating like I made a mistake.
Just wondering if others are going to shorter polls as well. Works for me...Your thoughts.
