    Default Teepee tent post

    So like many here, as I wait for days to get longer and permit drawing results, I am dreaming of full curls and thinking of ways to lighten my gear and winter upgrades. I weighed the tent pole of my shangra la 3 and it's like 14 oz. I've heard of folks connecting trekking poles. What kind works best? Any other ideas? Need something sturdy so can sleep without worry. Thanks!

    Depending on the SL3 height you may only need a "jack" for one trekking pole. See the two options in the above link. Make your own using tubing from a craft or hardware store. If you need two poles then a short piece of tubing to join the tips is all you need.

    We've lashed together two trekking poles and it worked fine but if it's your main shelter and you want to leave it setup and take off then you have no poles. My buddie has a Black Diamond tipi with a carbon fiber pole. That's another option. These guys might be able to make you one...http://tentpoletechnologies.com
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    Thanks for the replies gents. Looks like some aluminium tubing with 1/2 id will do the trick. Thanks again.
