                I would like to see these sold in pairs with a price break. Who needs just one?
                The workmanship was poor at one end of each the nested parts. I had to file the sharp burrs off and deburr the IDs

                I use these for tarps and lean-tos camping. They're very strong and light and being able to use 1, 2, 3 or all 4 sections make them usable for everything.

                        Compactness is their trump card

                        By Woodstock

                        from Alaska

                        Comments about Eureka 8 ft. Nested Aluminum Backpacker Upright Pole:

                        Bottom line for me: the nesting feature and the cheaper price makes these poles worthwhile.

                        Caution: the tip of the pole does not fit the grommets of the popular Kelty Noah tarp. I solved this by installing larger diameter grommets on my tarps, using an $8 brass grommet kit from the hardware store.

                        I made a tipi tent and needed a lightweight pole that breaks down and didn't break the bank. This pole fits the bill. I just wish it was in 5 sections so it was a little shorter to fit in a backpack better.

                        I have several of the 6' and 8', but usually cut the 8' down to 7' to save space and weight. Great for tarps over a table. Price has pretty much doubled in the last 5 years.

                          I use these with a Noah 12 tarp. I had to modify the tips to make them fit into the gromet on the tarp. They are heavy, definately not a hiking item.

                              The length of the 8 ft nested pole is 97 in. If you have a pole that measures 82 in that would seem to be a 7 ft pole.
