Huzefa,In 2006 I made two-piece trekking poles with 0.490" OD x 0.026" wall Easton 7075 Aluminum.For more pictures and complete instructions check out:http://caseyandemily.com/Backpack/2006/2006_10_Poles/Poles.htm
Thanks Casey! That was very helpful.But I wont be making a fixed pole. I am thinking of shock-cording it so that I can fold it when carrying in my backpack.
