    What is the lightest fairly inexpensive tubing to make single pole ( splittable preferably )

    I'd like to make something similar to a Tensa solo that is likewise easily broken down for transport . Is it doable without spending a lot of cash ?. Would buy from the states but importing to UK doubles the price and I'm on minimal income .thanks in advance , Bill

    I don't think that you're going to find anything light that's cheaper than the tubing in that DIY build that you included in your other post. I realize those tubes aren't cheap but you'll probably going to have to choose between cheap and light!

    I have no idea whether those poles would be strong enough for a single pole build ? Can anyone advise. Happy with their price !

    "those poles" might be elaborated upon to solicit responses from the hive.

    Put a link to the post of your build, because if we have to search all your posts to find the link... Oh, never mind I might as well do the search and post the link.

    Good luck with your project!

    Hi Bill I posted a couple of thoughts on your other thread. My version weighs 8.5kg for the stand ignoring hammock.
