Recommendations on New Spinaker Pole?

I am looking for a spinaker pole. I saw that their were two on the fS site. Would anyone recommend one over the other? My spinaker is older than I am, so speed is probably not of the essence though convienience is. (Yesterday, my 6'6 friend who broke the pole used his leg as the pole and it worked pretty well!)Thanks in advance! Tampa, Florida Roy Mackinnon Burnett Flying Scott #2166 813-767-9808

Roy, We just ordered the spin pole # 270110 from flying Scot

Roy, We just ordered the spin pole # 270110 from flying Scot . It is an RWO tapered pole that is very light and because it is tapered it is stronger than a tube pole . It is a little pricey but at $170 you are getting your money's worth , and I would say it is much better than a crewman's leg ! Smooth sailing John & Holly Welch #4411 , fleet # 3 Wilmette IL.
