    Caught me right at midnight Mustardman but my first thought was collaspible fiberglass fishing poles tip to tip with the tips inside a flexible tubing say 4' long? Just a thought. Good night, will think on it some more in the hamock.

    Absolutely outstanding, Mustardman! I did a Turtledog stand out of 1X1 with pipe for the ridge, and don't trust it, unfortunately. I'll switch to the total pipe stand soon!

    That is a work of art! Well done. Man that thing is awesome.

    And i just finished a metal pole turtledog, not sure if that has a different name. What to do, what to do...
