    Dutch spreader bar pole

    Do you need two of these poles and does anyone know where to get them? Dutch is out of stock. Also looking for a tarp to cover two hammocks.

    I have a 32" spreader for use with beetle buckles doubling with my kids. One pole provides plenty of separation, particularly if one of the trees has some good diameter to it. I'll put the spreader bar on the end with the smaller tree. Even without a larger diam. tree I still think it wouldn't be an issue.

    Also, the .665 pole (32") is in stock. That's what got since I'm not sensitive about weight with my use.

    We started using 2 poles, but then switched to just one at the head end.

    I had been using a head end pole from a ridge runner as it was a little longer than the pole I got from dutchware initially. I traded the RR to a friend, so I needed a new pole. With our current setup- 2 XLC's, one standard lay and one reversed, we needed a little more separation to get flat lays without bumping each other. We were going to buy the longest ones from Dutchware, and cut to suit, but I wound up trying a trekking pole-it works out really good, plus infinitely adjustable.
