    Single piece spreader bar

    Just got a JRB BMBH and was wondering if anyone carries spreader bars that are one-piece. So far I like the 32" length of the stock spreader but I am looking for lighter weight options. My stock spreader bars weigh 4.2oz each. I would love to do better then 1/2 pound just for a set of spreader bars.

    If you use hiking poles, it is sometimes possible to use them as spreader bars. Helps to reduce the overall bug-out weight.

    Some folks have also had success using (one piece) carbon spreader bars, which can cut the weight budget in half. A bit of DIY trickery to do the attachments may be necessary.
