Duomid A frame pole lengths on 10/18/2012 06:27:52 MDT Print View


I am toying with the idea of a duomid, and like the idea of using an A frame setup.

Does anyone know how long the poles need to be to acheive this?

Ron at MLD would know. I use GG LT4 adjustable poles on my Solomid.

most trekking poles are going to fall short in length, I use my BD Alpine Corks full extended (safely fully extended :)) and 14" pole jacks

if there are two sharing the shelter (and both use trekking poles) you can bind two poles together to get the right length
