Inverted V Duomid users: pole jack length? on 03/27/2013 09:37:39 MDT Print View

Need some folks with experience here. Got a section of pipe from the hardware store to experiment and did some cutting. 12"/25cm wasn't quite long enough with 140cm poles, IMO. Wondering what length you use (or total length of jacks + your poles) and if you have longer jacks for higher pitches in summer.

I use GG fixed length poles(120cm)and 16 inch pole jacks from Bearpaw Wilderness Designs. This combo works great for me.

hmmmmm my BD poles when extended to just a tiny bit past the STOP mark are 137 cm and I'm using 12" pole jacks and find them to be just right

Seems a little off, right? From reading prior threads I thought 12" would be perfect, but the pitch wasn't as taut as it seemed it should be. I tried some different combinations and 16" jacks with my poles at 130cm gives the best pitch with poles at maximum width. Thanks for your suggestions, guys.
