Differences Between Pogos
-------

Some pogo sticks have different tips from others. The Gravity Games pogo has a tip that is covered by a metal cap.

The Flybar, the Rawlings Pogo-Roo, and most of the Razor pogo sticks have a different kind of tip. Here you can see that there is NO metal cap, instead a cap of rubber simply covers the bottom of the pogo.

Pegs on pogos differ as well. The underside of almost every pogo on the market is slanted, but the new Flybar is almost 100% flat under its pegs. The big difference between pegs, though is size. Some pogos have VERY small pegs which makes landing tricks hard.

Another difference between pogos is the thickness of their frames. If a frame is too skinny you can't do many tricks (i.e. no hands).

Other pogos' pegs are very large which makes landing tricks considerably easier.

If a frame it too fat though, you'll find it very hard to do reverses and frame stalls.
