Hi Andy,

Any fiberglass pole or even a wooden pole will be fine. Have a look at these links

You might have to leave the top section off the spirit of air poles because it's quite thin.

73's Gary.

Use a metal pole , if its as flat top or inverted Vee just make sure the feeder is stood off from metal pole, 20cm might be enough depending on size of ladder line
