In the interesting article on this site about making trekking poles the author discusses using aluminum poles and ferrules to create a multi section pole. Anyone know where to get the ferrules and what diameter aluminum sections one would use? Thanks.
Clarification: I'm talking about adjustable ferrules that let one tube slip inside the next.

Simple directions to making poles. I have seen the poles he made in action. Strong and light!
