Powerisers are a type of spring-loaded stilt that allow you to take 9ft strides and jump 6ft in the air. They were designed by Alexander Bock and the sport is usually known as bocking or power-bocking. The stilts are also known as PoweriZers, Power-Skips (The original design), 7 league boots, pro-jumps, or velocity stilts. I will refer to them as Bocks.
Unfortunately some versions can be lacking in their quality and durability. In this instructable i will be showing you 4 ways of making them more comfortable and durable.
None of these ideas are mine and have been documented on several other web sites, but i have decided to collate a few on here. If you do not agree with your idea being shown here please contact me and i will remove it.
As far as i can tell the first people to document these ideas are:
Tyre socks: Bill C of http://www.powerbockresources.com
(A great site with all these tips and more).
Inner tube spring cover: Ray from New York City.
Webbing knee wrapping: Matt J., Centereach, NY USA.
This is my first 'ible so please give constructive criticism and point out any mistakes. Please post your own ideas too.
DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for you damaging your powerisers or yourself whilst modifying them. This is only accuate for my pro-jump brand Bocks. Yours may be different.
