    I have a 21' moonlighter 2 piece that's been epoxied together. It has the added mud feet for flamingo... I've been toying with selling it and upgrading. Any clue what the current used market is for that pole?

    Try the Silk Warehouse on the corner of I-275 and Himes, Ave in Tampa. From I-275 SouthboundExit on Himes turn right go 100 feet turn right into the parking lot. I bought a 12 foot bamboo stick there about 3 years ago. It was a waste of time for use as a pushpole. It split after being wet and dry repeatly. I found a telescoping fiberglass push-pole (structured cabling industry). It is light and short when collapsed. About 5 feet. I have been using it for about a year--no problems.

    I made my pushpole out of a 14' fiberglass VHF (or SSB) antenna. Made by shakespeare, If you know anyone in the marine trades have them keep an eye out. Big boats ditch these all the time. I might start picking them up when I see them and sell em cheap!

    Buying bamboo would be a waist of money when it grows for free
    A little shelack or or resin might do wonders

    Ok an open question... how many hours do you put on a bamboo pole? I have a typical push pole and will spend several hours a trip poling. I can not see any advantage to bamboo in that type of situation... are you folks looking for something that is just an infrequent use pole or a true push pole for long term use?

    Cheers

    That's the real question.  

    If you don't pole much or only use the pole to push off then use PVC, Bamboo, Wood Closet Rod or anything else that will do the job.

    The difference is when pole for hours is when it really matters about the weight and characteristics of the bend.  Anyone who consistently poles for hours on end will quickly upgrade to a higher quality pole.  Fiberglass PP's just fill a void for entry level poling IMHO.

    Not many people spend as much time on the platform as I do, so the Stiffy Hybrid is a good compromise but IMHO it's a waste if it's less than 20 feet.

    My .00000000000002 sense
