    Cascade carbon fiber trekking poles use in a bridge hammock

    I was at Costco today and noticed a pair of carbon fiber trekking poles. Is anyone using those poles as spreader bars for a bridge hammock? (see link below)

    I know how to mode the poles to be spreader bars but I don't know how to evaluate a pair of trekking poles to see if they are right for the job. The poles are a 3 piece pole. Can a 3 piece pole be used as a spreader bar?

    Link for the trekking poles:
