Smith Carbon Fiber Outrigger Poles are lighter, affordable, tough, stronger and stiffer than ordinary aluminum poles. Less weight reduces component stress and T-Top loads. Stronger with less tip sag and reduced aft bend while trolling, even in a heavy seaway. Bases are bar reinforced and fit virtually all popular pole holders ranging from 1-1/2" ID, common for stainless pole holders, up to 1-5/8" common for aluminum pole holders. A precision machined fitment sleeve is provided with each pole to be used with larger aluminum holders. Base is drilled to receive locking pins. Each pole is 3 gradually tapered sections for superior strength distribution, the smaller sections can be colapsed down into the larger sections for compact storage. When extended the sections wedge lock together making the pole effectively a single 5 meter (16' 4.85") long piece. Hard anodized colars at each section and the tip are available in 3 colors, Gold, Silver, or Black. Anodized aluminum fittings to compliment any boat and feature Custom 316L hardware to last in the marine environment. Poles are natural carbon fiber deep gray. 3 stainless eyelets for rigging.
