Posted:Right, on a sheer impulse buy i got myself a set of poweriser stilts (see http://www.poweriser.com/)
and i'm going to be having a great laugh seeing what i can and cant do on them.

Does anyone out there have a set and have some tips for someone going up on bouncy stilts for the first time. I've had a go on dura-stilts and know my way around peg-stilts so the actual stilt bit wont be too new. Are there any adjustments that it's a good idea to make to the stilts before getting up? Anything that's best to avoid trying til much later?

most importnat thing to remebris that they break, the ones i have seen the sping is only good for about 6000hrs or somthing stupid, and then its MIA!

Posted:I was a little worried i may not make the minimum weight as i'm only 54kg....lol!!

I just figured out these are also sold as Powerskips and was reading the older thread on them and i did also check - yes, the springs CAN be replaced if they should break and if they do break you dont fall as all it does is stop you going BOING

One thing i have wondered though.... if you do start running.... how easy is it to stop? I'm also considering going along to the trampoline club at university to get the basics of bouncing and correct methods for tricks.

Posted:I have seen advertisements for the Powerisers and redirected some terms for them to the wikipedia article, they look very interesting, something that like jumping on a trampoline probably can stress the leg muscles a lot to build strength in them, to allow interesting tricks and stunt like a pogo.

Posted:I've never gotten to work with/see dura stilts before, but my roommate has powerisers and they're a LOT of fun. He just fooled around on them for a few days and that made him comfortable to jog/jump just generally go around and be a spectacle.
