  What's to keep it from kinking?
  Posted by: TommyC1 on Apr-25-13 5:28 AM (EST)

Generally the 200 lbs buffoon (me) letting go before it kinks but often after it's bent a bit.

I have seen some kink. But you get a feel for when to let go with wood and aluminum. Too stiff or too quick to go from flexing to breaking would not be good.

Matching the flex to that of the 1.125 dia with 0.058" wall 6061 tubing would be good.

Since shipping a 12' pole is overly expensive compared to two 6' poles, I'd be curious about my cost for a 2 piece.
