    In the event anyone of larger stature attempts this, I weigh 300lb and just snapped the aluminum section of one of the poles on my first test. Luckily it was only 1 so I can return the other 3.

    I am about 230 lbs and i was fine in mine for a little while. My wife put my 30 lb son in with me and it was too much for it. I would guess the limit to be about 240-250lbs.

    I've been wandering in my local Menards hardware store and I came across a telescoping pool pole. It's lighter than the paint poles. It felt pretty strong. I extended one out to about 8.5 feet and leaned in on it pretty good (fully extended is 12 feet). Any thoughts on using one for a stand? It's a twist-lock, so I would have to drill a hole for a pin. I'm roughly 150 Lbs and would like to build a portable stand. I made one out of wood last year and enjoyed it.

    Thanks for any thoughts/ideas!

    A store employee looked up some info for me. He confirmed that the pole is aluminum, but I don't have wall thickness information or anything.
