I was helping a buddy of mine load some DJ equipment since his back went out and could not lift his massive speakers. He pulled out his stands for those massive speakers and my wheels started turning...His speaker stands were light weight tubular aluminum with a telescoping pole on the top. I came home and started googling. I found these on Amazon:
They are rated for 200 LBS EACH and apparently weigh in at about 9 LBS EACH. I think a set of these might make a pretty nice Hammock stand. Any thoughts? Anyone ever try these?
