it all depnds on what make they are, powerisers have it printed on the back of the spring, as do pro jumps and 7 league, tbh im not sure about the other brands, powerskips etc  :Cmask:

ie poweriser 70-90 is 11-14 stone
pro jump m80 is the same

ok cool, thanks ive had a look around and im sure ive got the adult pro jump original not sure if they are m80/m90/m100 tho, should you be able to flex the spring fairly easily or is it only when jumping and running etc..... which i am way off being able to yet haha,

You dont really flex the spring at all when walking on them. That is quite normal.

Just keep at it, practice the jumping as thats the most important thing.
It's too early to be worrying about little details.

ok well you can check. Turn the stilt upside down and have a look on the bottom of the spring. There should be a number hand written on the very end. Let us know what it is.
There is quite a difference between 80's and 100's but at least for someone who weighs 11stone, you're at the right end of the scale. You dont want to be 11 stone and on a pair of 60s for example.

right just had a decent look at my bocks the guy who had em before me had a job on protectin the springs covered in duct tape. There is also a tough plastic cover on the spring. Any ways the number on the bottom is 91,

they should be fine for you, maybe a little on the stiff side at first but thats not a bad thing.
