I need a new fly pole for my A5/TNF Cliff Cabana portaledge and can't find any local place that sells replacement poles. Any help? I live in the South Bay (Newark/Fremont) but can drive to any relatively close gear shop. Specifically I need:
Easton 7075-T9 @ 24" x5
Easton 7075-T9 @ 16" x1

Thanks for any help guys!

I have 16 pieces of 8.84mm OD DAC aluminum poles that are orange. 17" long each. Found them with elastic cord in the backcountry in a few pieces.

The end pieces can be cut and plugs re-inserted, tied to the cord, so length is very adjustable.

If you want to make them work, you can have them, just pay for shipping from LA.

Hey Tooth. If Strider doesn't want them I'll take em. Email me a price for shipping.

That 7075-T9 is some hard stuff. It approaches the strength of mild steel. I machined some parts out of a chunck some years ago and I remember thinking: "Damn, this is some tough metal!"

"Tent poles."


"You already have the tent?"

"Somethin like that."

"Well you give me the model number of the tent I can order you the poles."

"Never mind. I want a tent."

"What kind of tent?"

"The kind with the most poles."

Have you contacted North Face to ask them
if they supply old poles? It may not be
the cheapest way, but they might. . .
Good luck.
