=James33;15685. 9]I used an aluminum flagpole - under or about $1and the 4 poles simply slide together. I used some "S" hooks, turn buckle, and vinyl clothes line to insure it didn't come apart. 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 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 tried that but a yard was charging like 400 for a 20ft pole nd they for some odd reason wouldn't cut it.

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.
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!
