Im buying new dedicated pre-assembled easy to set up and take down GS gates for our local club. There are two options. One where the slightly thinner inside pole (furthest away from the skier) is eather equipped with a flexing joint like the outside pole or one where the inside pole is rigid since the skier newer hits it. There are advantages and drawbacks with both opitons. If the inside pole is equipped with a flexible pole it is heavier and a little more expensive. On the other hand, the hole can be drilled with the same drill and it stays inside the hole if hit. If the pole is rigid then its much lighter to carry and not as expensive. On the other hand, if hole drilled with the same drill as the outside hole then it slides easily out of its position.
What do you guys use? Any thaughts?
