I need some ideas for a small diameter, light, collapsible, 24" long, "spreader" to hold Nanoseeum netting wide above my head. I'm trying to get away from the "narrow peak" result of a single tie up.

A typical shock-corded tent pole would work, but I'm holding out for something about 1/8" or less, most likely just sleeved and not connected.

Ideas?

Greg- might check kitebuilder.com or another kite site for CF spreaders. All sorts of diameters, weights generally quite light.

If you come up with something useful, please share! I'm looking to do something similar with my netting.
