These two section poles are very stiff, come apart and join effortlessly, are quiet, the tip is replaceable, very light, about 4.7 oz. per pole (the non-take down pole, 3.1 oz), and the handles comfortable foam, I thoght I would prefer cork, but the foam is shaped to make them more versatile, especially as a tarp pole. They are super stiff and make great tarp poles for my SpinnTwinn from CG. Although their web site was temporarily down, they shipped me a pole without payment in advance, now that is generous and I appreciate the service.
TG's information is accurate, in my experience, little or no hype here. Their online info follows:
Goat poles are back and redesigned! All the original strength, plus some
weight savings and versatility. At only 3.1oz (125cm(49") length) each,
Goat poles are very light, but very stout. Goat poles feature light weight
EVA foam grips, 14mm(.560") carbon fiber shafts, and custom machined
aluminum tips with hardened points that accept Black Diamond baskets.
Also new to the redesigned poles is the option of a take down version.
With a single joint and internal ferrule, with compression fitting, you can
have your Goat poles break in half for easy transport
