    I really like to crank my tarp down tight. I'm curious if these kinds of poles would work...I'm imagining them holding up OK, but flexing too much like a bow.

    How about collapsible hiking poles?
    Quite a few people seem to use them.

    Left side, aluminum poles. A single pole in the center works.

    If you are looking for poles that will act like posts, then yeah, hiking poles.

    I just use some bamboo when car camping or some sticks if I'm in the woods.
    Have sherpas, will travel...

    Triangles, it's all about the triangles.

    I always carry one trekking pole. I use it on one side of my hex tarp and find a stick wherever I set up camp for the other side. Works for me, and it's one less thing to carry. If you're car camping, who cares? Bring a 5ft section of gas line black pipe. It's cheap. If you.have to pack it in, you have to pack it out. Use what's already there, IMHO.

    Why not hiking poles? I got mine on Amazon for $20.

    Hiking poles are great if you use them. If you don't, they are just extra weight.

    I used to never use hiking poles until I turned 55 and tried them. I could never hike again without them.
