i am looking to buy a new push pole and I think I want a one piece push pole. Currently have a 19 6 mangrove from Carbon Marine that has water trapped inside and is shedding fibers (my own fault for leaving on boat for a year). I am looking at stiffy hybrid, graphite, and maybe the stiffy guide or carbon marine g3lr. Any feedback is helpful. Do I need to worry about graphite pole shedding? I plan on keeping the new pole stored in pvc tube. Will this eliminate the chance of fiber shedding?
