    HH Hex Tarp Pole Mod - Choosing the pole

    I just received my package back from 2QZQ after getting zipper and Tarp Mods completed.

    I've never had to replace a tent pole before, or purchase one without an original to copy.

    Can anyone offer assistance in how to go about figuring out what I need (number of sections, length, tips, etc), and the pros/cons of the various materials?

    Thanks!

    I'd be interested in this "secret" too. I've got the pole mod,but haven't yet gotten around to ordering poles as I wasn't sure what I'd really need, nor even how to measure for it.
