Anyone reading this ... A same-expected-load pole in carbon would be stiffer and 1/2 the weight of the .058" aluminum version. This gives a whole pound and half to place material where it needs to be for odd point loading that would be FAR stronger and tougher than the 'beer can' pole. A pound and half of carbon would be ridiculously too much so cut that in half and you get a bomber strong AND tougher pole @ < 2.25 pounds.
