I have 125" straight poles. I want a 130 or 135 GS pole, but do I need to go up to 140 or 145 due to pole curvature?
Are bent-GS poles measured along the length of pole, or vertical displacement?

You want long poles for the start. Take your poles into the shop, and check the relative length yourself. Don't forget to see if the bend fits your body type, but don't worry about wind tunnel testing. Or you could take your calculator, some sort of protractor, do some trig, and figure it out. Approximately.
Seriously, just go to a shop, pull a pair off the rack and see what feels right. Online, by two pairs, send one back. The end. Mountains, molehills. Of course you could e-mail or call the manufacturer, but I figure you wouldn't trust them.
