SPIDERBEAM "FIBERGLASS" SPIDERPOLES
(Made of Fiberglass and Epoxy; No Carbon)
Spiderbeam's telescoping fiberglass "Spiderpoles"
were designed to be the best compromise
between weight and height.
They were primarily designed
for the traveling ham radio operator
to be used for on-the-ground mounting,
supporting lightweight wire antennas.
Spiderbeam is Amateur Radio's PREMIUM manufacturer and source for telescoping fiberglass push-up poles. Simply stated, it is the BEST QUALITY telescoping fiberglass poles in the Amatuer Radio industry for supporting portable wire antennas.
FACT: The most important criteria for choosing a fiberglass pole to support your antenna is "quality", NOT price!
If you buy cheap, you buy twice.
IMPORTANT: the Spiderpole does not use carbon to increase strength. Carbon is conductive/resistive, and can introduce absorbtion loss and/or substantially detune the antenna.
The Spiderpole itself is UV-resistant. In addition, it is coated with a layer of black enamel (UV-resistant) paint which helps assure a long life supporting your antenna.
The typical life expectancy of a Spiderpole is 10 years or more unless you do something very stupid with it.
EXAMPLES OF STUPID THINGS YOU MIGHT DO:
- Drill holes in your pole. This is a good way to
break your pole.
- One well known California ham did this, broke his pole, and continues to blame Spiderbeam.
- Attaching a dipole with heavy coax to the pole while it is laying on the ground, then trying to pivot it up. This is almost guaranteed to break the pole.
