tent poles (broke)

5 posts in this topic

hey guys I want to know where i can get tent poles (fiberglass). I was camping this weekend and a wind storm came up and broke 2 poles (1 section on 2 different poles). Its just on section of my poles so i wanted to know if I could judt get a replacement section or if they make poles to would work for the lenth. I really don't want to call a manufacture because they would be about 10 times the real cost because they are a maufacure (they do it all the time).

I have a tent that was a victim of me in a camping incident. Take a measure of your poles and post it here. Then I can take a look at mine. You would be welcome to have them if they match.

I have a Eureka tent and broke a couple of poles a few years ago. Called them and they sent me out a whole set (not just a section) for about $25. Now I have some spares just in case. Some manufacturers sell parts at reasonable prices...they consider it good customer service.

well I went to 3 fifferent stores today and finally found my replace ment poles. I tell ya that sheels camping guy I was talkin to tried to get me to buy 7/16" poles when I needed 3/8" poles. because they did not have any 3/8" poles. I asked him to see if he coul order some in and he still tried selling me 7/16" poles. so I got [PoorWordUsage] and left. I think I will give them a call tomorrow about that guy.

    • Google;   Sayyid Qutb  and you can then read and decide on your own where and how todays Islamic Fundamentalists originated.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
