Go to skinnywaterproducts.com. They make an aluminum push pole in many different lengths. They also make one that breaks down with a screw type fitting in the middle. The hawk foot is a mud foot they designed for the marsh. I have been using one for approx 18 mos. You cant break it and if you do they replace it for free. There are several dealers throughout LA but you can also order online and they offer free shipping. Check em out you wont be sorry.
Thanks!! Not to bad on prices!!
...check out your local high schools for a used pole vault...they fiberglass and flex, all you may have to do is cut a bit off and buy a duckbill...(if 'ya don't cut it 'ya can use it offshore )...cheers ???
The skinny water poles are awesome poles and are first class, Glenn is a first class guy and an expert with metal. His metal workmanship is second to none. He has a bracket that goes on motor bolts that allow you to set pole in when fishing and when you hit a school of trout or reds just move pole into secondary hole and it drops to bottom to anchor boat while still in bracket, poormans power pole. Great , simple, light and very well made, a great addition to any lightweight marsh boat.
Bought mine at Gus's Tackle on Old Spanish Trail in Slidell. Gus has an ad in the sportsman every month . I don't know who made it but it's tough and light ( all aluminum) .
Go to Academy and buy the push pole head for around $10+/-. Then go to Home Depot and pick up a stick of 1' rigged conduit. Drill a hole and mount the head and that is about as solid and as good as it gets for the money. In salt water it will last a few years then you just replace the head.
Thanks Guy's....I think I will go the conduit route. It may be the cheepest way to go and just as usefull. I have seen some for upwards of $700 bucks. I mean, come now! Really? I like quality thing's and beleive you get what you pay for, but a push pole for $700.00. No Thanks!!
I have built two of them each for under $20. They work just as good as the $700 ones!
A few years back I built one out of Alumium conduit and welded a head on it. That was the best one until I lost it on a night trip. It is some where in the bottom of Little Lake!! lol
...don't 'ya know for $700 they help'n America !!!...cheers ???
Haha...I'm sorry, I forgot!! We DO need to help one another out....
Since it would be helping others out...I'll get the 24' for $1,123.00. That's One 'STIFF' price tag...But I'm not nameing names!! lol
...never use common plastic conduit that could snap into a knights' lance...after falling on one of those things 'ya will be impaled and wiggle'n on the broken end of a super-size hypo needle !!!...it should'n be too pretty !!!...cheers ???
only my opinion, but a $700 pushpole should have a motor on it!!!!
i made one from cypress....old school style....easy to make and durable.....cheap to make....lasts forever....
