Title: Hi from Michigan
Post by: killax on August 15, 2011, 12:56:13 AM
Might as well before i forget to introduce myself.  My name is Justin, age 19, from west michigan.  Been wanting jumping stilts for over a year, finally got them, just starting to get use to them as i can walk all over as much as i please, standing still (near to) in open space, and i can bounce on one leg in open space but only a weak 5 inches.

I'm 6' tall, 135 pounds (Yes i know, skinny).  Not very active person at all, but i always had a good sense of balance and fast hand-eye ordination.  I bought the lowest weight range of air trekkers extreme, which is 133-155.  So for a 135 pound guy, im going to have to work hard to hit these springs.  Just walking and taking hard steps due to hills, by guess only flexes at most 1-2 inches.  I practiced on grass, slanted hill, so 2 feet was impossible to me, but one foot was easy.  Makes since, 1 spring gets the full 135 pounds.  two feet, they get 67.5 pounds each.  New springs, cant do it.

Like I said, I'm not physically fit, i just have high metabolism.  I dont walk daily, but i do bike ride at least 3 times a week...which makes my legs strong, after a 2 hour first-time on stilts, my legs arnt sore from the walking.  But i stopped after two hours due to getting tired, (maybe 30% due to needing to use the rest room)

Else, I'm a high voltage nut.  Videos do more than words. ( ( (
