Although it is light and small enough to fit in any large suitcase, it was developed to be rugged and durable!
It uses a special reinforced winding technique – where several layers of fiberglass are wound in alternating directions (criss-cross wound) – providing greatly increased lateral and linear strength. The Spiderbeam Mini-poles have a much larger overlap between segments than most other fiberglass poles, which assures stronger joints between segments and results in a much stronger pole.
The Spiderbeam Mini poles are great for Geocaching, SOTA, IOTA, and any other popular application for traveling ham radio operators. The top segment of the Mini pole is hollow, very rigid, and has a usable inner diameter of 4mm allowing a wire to pass through, or for attaching your mini-tool for other applications.
