    Looking for a push pole for my jon boat. Any type of push pole would work. I might just make my own but would like to buy a "real" push pole that might hold up or last a little longer.

    MATT thats what I think I might end up doing. Not looking to spend too much money so that might be the best way to go. Thanks for all the replys.

    Or.... you could pm Capt. Ron and get a price on a "real pushpole". After building my own closet rod pole, you could spend around $200 (depending on length) and have a 3 lb carbon fiber pole and not a wooden piece of crap. Thats what I did.

    No offense Matt.

    IMHO, if you go the closet rod approach, I wouldn't spend the money on the parts from Cabela's. Use PVC parts and spray the pole with spray can polyurethane. You'll get two for the price of Matt's. IMHO if you wear out one (with a little maintenance) you'll be upgrading later.
