I remember when I first bought my scoop, you couldn't find a 11/8" handle for it. I had to shave down a round closet pole.
When I seen the carbon travel pole, I wanted two, just to make sure I wasn't dreaming.
I did have to add one small piece of black tape. And it works great, and looks super cool.
I highly recommend this pole.
The handle is very strong, very light and well made. Looks great also but it was just a bit loose when inserted into my CKG scoop. A little electricians tape and that issue was fixed. I recommend this to anyone with a ckg scoop. Great Shaft.
