Please pre-order as they are selling as fast as I can make them

The poles are made from one piece kiln dried timber, the timber boards are selected personally by Dave looking for straightness of grain and no defects. The boards are then cut into blanks machined square and again selected for their straightness, if the blanks are up to scratch they will then be turned into a pole. Once turned, the poles are hand sanded checked for straightness and defects, and then an oil finish is applied. They will receive another coat of oil after 24hrs and will be stored vertically in a rack and observed for any further movement. The weight of the finished pole will vary but the weights quoted below are fairly consistent.

Please seek advice form your Sifu as to which type of pole is the best for you, but feel free to call and discuss if needed.
