For people that have Aluminum Poles. Where did you get yours from? I know a lot of people get theirs from Rig Pro, I was wondering if there are any alternatives out there first? Conduit piping is bouncing a lot due to the weight of it.

i made a phone call to a couple metal supply yards after doing a google maps search for what was local. I picked up 20ft of aluminum around $100 and they cut it for me too into 4 5ft sections on the spot.

I have a 4.5m custom made aluminium rig pole for sale, it weighs 5.6Kg and is threaded together. it's just the pole that is for sale.

It would be collection only (Near Milton Keynes UK), if there is any interest I'll post some pictures up.

The pole is 2" in outer diameter and works great. You could always drill it and use bolts or other methods to hold it together.

Hmmm brilliant! I will start looking around and see who sells flag poles

I tried that but a yard was charging like 400 for a 20ft pole nd they for some odd reason wouldn't cut it.

I live in chicago IL so shipping might be a little much. But still might work out cheaply? Send a pm or post on here. Thanks!

Don't get the telescoping flag poles - they are way more expensive and not as stiff. Google 20ft Aluminum flag pole kit and you should find it. They even sell it at Home Depot.

I like it! Editing must be easier without the pole ;)
