There is a point to which a great player will remain so regardless of equipment.
However, as the game becomes more immersed in the competitive level, choice and quality of equipment is a marked necessity, as advantage becomes apparent.
Recently I have been using the 14 bike co prototype polo frameset. After using the same bike for a couple of years, I was surprised at how quickly I felt comfortable on the 14 bike, its geometry and weight meant it instantly felt stable and agile. Further more, as I settled in and tweaked the set up, it became evident just how far you could continue to push the bike with its tight turning circle, meaning that I had a tool that would allow me to frequently out turn and consequently out play other bikes.
Polo bikes seem to be entering a third generation in development and while it is important that bikes remain individual to players and their style, I am confident that the 14 bike co frameset leads the way in polo efficiency.
