Height of Stick: approx. 47in. - 58in.
Recommended Weight: 80-300 pounds
Height you need to be: 4 1/2 to 7 feet
This is an AWESOME pogo stick and guess what? It doesn't even have a spring. The Flybar
1200 works on 12 gigantic rubberbands. The feeling of bouncing on a Flybar is more comparable to a trampoline than to another
pogo stick. You haven't lived until you've had a ride!
Pros: Unlike the GG stick (below) the
Flybar packs an incredibly smooth ride and has NO high impact jumping. You can adjust the shaft length as well as the weight
limit. This means practically ANYONE can use the stick. It's very comfortable and easy to handle. Also, you can reach heights
of up to 7 feet off the ground! That means your head is somewhere around 13-14 feet in the air! What can I say? Enjoy
Cons: The biggest problem with the Flybar is that it's just too BIG.
Even though the shaft condenses, if you try lugging this thing around for five minutes you'll be dead. Also, it seems to
break quite often. The rubberbands iniside the shaft that control the weight get worn out quickly if you bounce on it
a lot. Also, becuase the Flybar is made up of screws and bolts, they can come loose and will be a hassle to get back on.
I highly recommend this pogo stick for EVERYONE. You have to try it. It will blow your mind.
But as a permanent stick, I'm not so sure. True extreme pogoers still like the Gravity Games more because it's much lighter,
skinnier, and an all around easier pogo to do techincal tricks on. The Flybar is the best for big air though.

Gravity Games (GG)
Height of stick: aprox. 4 ft.
aprox. 120-220 lbs.
Height you need to be:
4 ½ feet and up
This is, closely followed by the Motostik
(see above), the best pogo available to true pogoists right now. I say "true
pogoists" because, unless you are one, you will probably not like this pogo.
Pros: If you are serious about pogo sticking,
and somewhat tall...this is the stick for you. It has a huge spring and bottoming
out is very hard. Due to this...you can get massive air when you really push
down. It is very easy to balance this pogo during stalls and I find it much easier to work with than
the Master pogo. The foot pedals are very wide and so they too are easy to work
with. Nothing on the pogo bends up or folds in, like the Razor sticks, so you
will never find yourself suddenly one peg less.
If you are a kid, you will find this pogo is extremely hard to push down and takes extreme leg
strength. The pogo is also very tall you will find that (unless you are around
6 feet) many tricks will be hard, if not impossible, to pull. Also, due
to the fact that the frame on the pogo is so wide, it is hard to do no hands. The final downside to this pogo is that it has
a big "G" right where your knees are and, until you get used to it, your knees will get extremely bruised and battered.
I highly, highly recommend
this stick for the serious pogoist.
of stick: aprox. 3ft 4in.
weight: aprox. 60-160 pounds
Height you need to be: 4ft-5½ ft.
This pogo comes in at a close second to GG and has many good qualities.
Pros: Very nice for jumping long distances. VERY good for no hands. Easy to control, because you can bottom out easily.
Nice for spinning. Very nice height for doing tricks like,
Front Ground Touch and Back Ground Touch. Nothing on the pogo bends up like the
Razor sticks. VERY nice for peg stalling because the bottom of the pegs are metal.
Cons: Very poor spring for somebody around five feet who uses it a lot. Foam
is not stable and many times comes undone and gets everywhere. The rubber piece
that keeps the shaft clean comes off easily...and if it does, your shaft will be ruined.
Pedals easily bend inward and pedal caps easily fall off. Tip frequently
This pogo is not as sturdy as GG, I can go through it in 2 weeks. However,
it is very easy to control and nice for a whole slew of tricks.
highly recommend this stick for the up-and-coming pogoist.
of stick: 2ft.5in. - 3ft.6in.
weight: 60-120 pounds
Height you need to be: aprox.
3ft - 5ft.9in.
This pogo is pretty
bad...but all right for someone who's light and doesn't want to do a lot of tricks.
After months and
months of Fin bouncing on this, it has not broken,
or gotten hurt in any way shape or form. This stick is extremely sturdy. You can also bounce far on it. Changes
Pegs fold up and
frequently will do so in mid bounce, leaving you pegless. The height of the pogo
stick can be changed...but is done so by a very annoying lever thing right in the middle of the stick. Due to its placement, the lever will bang up your knees, like GG.
The frame on this pogo is a cylinder, and so its very hard to do no hands. The
pegs on this pogo are extremely small and so its hard to do pogo switches or
any other trick where you have to quickly put your feet back on the pegs.
I recommend this pogo for someone
who is just getting into pogoing...but once you get good, you better get a more professional pogo.
Height of stick: 3ft.
Recommened weight: 40-100 lbs.
you need to be: 4ft-5ft
Frankly, this stick is a piece of junk, but if
youre tiny, and you want a little joyride...I guess its all right.
Pros: Very sturdy. Never
Cons: Very tiny, can only be used by a small % of the population. Pegs come up, can't be used for peg stalls.
Small pegs, cant be used for many tricks. Basically you cant do anything
This stick is just for
some tiny kid who dones't want to do anything but bounce straight up and down on it. If you're that kid...go for it,
otherwise GET A DIFFERENT POGO.
This pogo doesn't really need a whole bunch of stuff said about it. It's as simple as this.
If you're REALLY tiny, like 3 feet, then you'll like it. Otherwise...NO WAY.
