John and Jimmy Sell a Custom Pogo Stick for $500 on 'Dirty Money' (VIDEO)

Where some people see a pogo stick, John and Jimmy DiResta see an investment. On 'Dirty Money' (Tuesdays, 10PM on Discovery) they happened upon some people in a public park doing amazing pogo tricks. The DiRestas stopped to make them an offer, and they agreed that if Jimmy could make them something they'd never seen before, they might spend between $400 and $500 for it.
After some trial and error, Jimmy delivered, making a custom old school pogo stick. "You can see I'm using a double spring that gets extended as opposed to compressed," he said, explaining his creation. "This is one garage door spring cut in half and then hooked onto this adjustable mechanism right here."
