Ok. I put this light weight shaft on my titanium sand scoop and went to the beach, Well, it was so light, and it did flex some, and to be honest, I was afraid it was going to break, so I was real careful, didn't put much pressure on it, and everything went ok. Also, it is a two piece shaft, and I thought I was ordering the one piece shaft, so not exactally what I wanted. I gave it three stars, but it may be a five star tool, it's just I am afraid of carbon fiber. I guess this is not a good review because I used it only once. I will say, it is really really light, and walking around in the sand all day, that really really helps.
Yep, as "Fun with Jim" points out, the carbon fiber shaft is very light and just what I need while hunting on the beach, light weight. I like too that I breaks down into two pieces, and fits into my cars small trunk. I don't think you will be sorry if you purchase this shaft from CKG.
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.
