I purchased a very good 31′ pole for $59.95 and $9.00 shipping; arrived at delivery address less than 48 hours after I ordered on line. Virginia Beach to New Jersey; I was impressed.
I chose orange instead of black – easier to see up in the foliage. The telescopic segments slide out and lock with a twist and the outer thin sections have relatively thicker walls – stiff, and much more useful than the flimsy tip of my old 20′ roach pole. Weight is reasonable and the pole could be used for some extended time without becoming a strain.
