I don't get why the jump tape differs? I asked my Coach this very same question, and my response was "Yes". I asked, just to double check to see if my measurement of 35" matched their response, which they did correspond.
I took my measuring tape, and held it up to their measuring stick, and 2'11", sure enough is 35".
that makes sense though because 2'11 is one inch under 3 foot and 3 foot= 36 inches.
So jumping 2'11 you're jumping 35 inches one inch under 3 foot.
Not sure why 2 feet came out to 2.5 though. That's odd.
