We present observations of 35 high spin-down energy radio pulsars using the MeerKAT telescope. Polarization profiles and associated parameters are also presented. We derive the geometry for a selection of pulsars which show interpulse emission. We point out that, in several cases, these radio pulsars should also be seen in γ-rays but that improved radio timing is required to aid the high-energy detection. We discuss the relationship between the width of the radio profile and its high-energy detectability. Finally, we reflect on the correlation between the spin-down energy and the radio polarization fraction and the implications this may have for γ-ray emission.
