Is there a pole rating available for a 200 pound vaulter?

There are many poles rated for a 200 lbs vaulter. First a vaulter of that size must work on their technique to ensure that he can use such a large pole. Then depending on the vaulters height and jump a vaulter can buy a 14' - 17' 7" that is rated for a 200 lbs vaulter. But a 14' 200 is not the same pole as a 16' 200. Please look up a pole size chart before picking the right size pole.
