Carbon Boom and poles wanted
Please see secondhand thread. Can anyone help?
You'll have a long wait, I reckon, these don't come up 2ndhand very often
True, generally you would only replace them if you break them! Best bet is to bite the bullet and go for some new ones.
Whats a fair price for a pair of used but never broken carbon spinaker poles? 55% 65% 75% of new?
I am told that carbon fishing rods of roughly the right diameter make good spinny poles and are a lot cheaper!
or .. you could try these people ...
Thats a good website!

I looked long and hard at that web site plus a couple of others and basicaly by the time you got the bits for the ends and epoxy you saved about £25 notes, so what happens when it breaks on the third outing? you have to make another.... buy from one of the Chandlrey shops and as like as not it will get replaced as neither they or the manufacturer will want anything to do with a pole that broke on the third outing.
You're right but the tubes are probably exactly the same. There are not that many manufactuters of shrink-wrapped carbob tube.
Those people do parallel tube, if you want a tapered tube, try these people ..
You could try Terry Cooke at Aardvark Racing
