    I was aware althought not many are that their is actually a group of
    people who pogo as a sport, but it never seemed that interesting. Until
    now!! Check out the newest Pogo Stick design

    I saw that guy a couple of days ago on OLN Gravity Files. I think he's
    that same guy that said he practiced a skateboard trick for 6 years
    before landing it even once. Crazy.

    "Now" sounds like it may start on Sept. 15, when the product ships. It
    looks like a cool pogo! It's nice to have pogo sticks that can handle
    adult weight. Kids' ones are just no fun. I have an Air Go that I got at
    Sharper Image for too much money (1/3 the price of this new one). When
    pumped up, you can get plenty of height with it. It's great exercise,
    but remember gravity is a factor at all times, and the higher you go the
    harder you'll land if you don't land it on the spring!

    If you are into trials or freestyle unicycling it is definately worth
    playing round with a more advanced pogo stick for a bit of fun. (you
    want one that will handle an adult's weight and abuse)

    Tony and I played round with a hydraulic pogo stick a couple of times
    and found we could pull off a bunch of uni inspired tricks

    -suicide mount
    -no handed pogo (ala no handed seat in front)
    -no handed pogo (ala stand up wheel walk)
    -jump mount
    -spin mount
    -flying jump mount
    -180" pogo spin
    -one footed pogo

    I had a go on a friend's Air Go pogostick a while ago, which was pretty
    good fun. I jumped off the stage in a school hall (about 4 feet) and
    hopped up 4 stairs (hitting each stair individually). Jumping down
    stairs is also possible. I jumped a 5-set in one hop.

    I also did a few other tricks which you can see in a video clip in 'my
    gallery' ( Its the second

    Pogosticks are fun, but not as fun nor as versatile as a uni!
