MYOG Trekking Poles Graphite shafts on Ebay $8.67 each on 02/27/2012 11:10:25 MST Print View

I saw these on Ebay (Im in no way affiliated with the seller) I noticed they have a .370 tip diameter. Leki flex tips should fit these shafts nicely and weight is listed as 79 grams. With shipping you could get two for $25.79... Ive seen cheaper but $25 bucks aint bad.

Got my hopes up but it looks like he doesn't ship out of the US. I'd be all over this, need one for golf as well.

Trekking Poles Will Be Short on 02/27/2012 23:49:37 MST Print View

The problem with using most golf shafts of that diamater is that they will make for short trekking poles. I cannot imagine making a trekking pole longer than 110 cm with a iron shaft.

flick lock? on 02/28/2012 00:14:04 MST Print View

You might be able to purchase spare parts from black diamond and use their flicklock system. They are fairly flexable size wise.

Nicholas, its true these shafts will make short poles but Im short so they work for me. Theyre also inexpensive enough that Im going to experiment with making adjustable poles as well.

Hey have you finished your MYOG poles yet? I'm curious as to how they turned out. I'd love to see some pics, of course.

I finished the poles some time ago and tried them out. I found them to be a bit shorter than I would like but still very usable. In fact Im still using them. I did recently find some shaft extenders on Ebay that would add 2 or 3 inches to the length with only a 10 gram weight penalty.Currently Im trying to find some carbon fiber tubes to make a pair of adjustable poles. If I have any success with that I'll post the results.Leki Tipswicked lightpaint modcork mod
