    Okay you guys wanted to see them here they are. I hope you get the jest of it. If not drop me a PM and I'll try to explain. I've seen them with PVC, inner tube's and all that other good stuff. I'll put mine up against any of the other style's. I caught a 6 lber on one of these and all it did was crack the pole. And it was in the middle of the blue river at the end of a sandbar. Not tied off to anything.

    Actually those are just old poles that I bought at a garage sale. I bought a whole lot of them for 5 buck and used just the top of them for the poles. I like to use like 5 inches past the joints that way if one breaks, like it's happened before I can throw the top away and just find another pole to fit in. My dad says I use to much pole but it works well for me. Remember when you weld the rebar to the copper to use flux covered brazing rod. And I use string line that you buy for setting forms when doing concrete work. It holds up real good I can pull them cats out of any hole with this type of line.
