Well how can you measure? Inches of pop then some scale where you minus more inches for younger than older?

I think Brophy is 40 and can still get up there. Reynolds bit older can still jump.
Kevin Taylor even older and Ron Allen older again but not as much pop as Reynolds.

good shouts.
i was thinking less quantifiable, and more just when you know you know. i guess?
brophy, reynolds, kt, all tall: so they can just suck the legs up, i reckon. mmmm, sounds like iím taking away from their strengths, thatís not what i was trying to get at.
ron allen is not tall.

thanks for suggestions!

Obvious bias as a tall guy and I've already talked about this is too many threads lol but I don't think points taken off for being tall should be a thing. An Ollie is not the same thing as a regular jump so being tall isn't always an advantage. Then especially not when we're also talking about being old as tall usually also means heavier and being tall puts way more strain on the body over the years.

I think Jimmy lannon might also be 40 and can still get over stuff.

thanks for all of the suggestions.

my title is way too clickbait. could have said: older skaters with pop.

interesting to think that ellington still has that ups. heís an alltimer.

ron is a goal, with his longevity
