i heard that you can like take the handle off and cut them down to size. i dont care though. ill break any poles yo give me. i should just start finding random sticks so it doesnt matter if they get fucked up.
a pole isnt a pole. cheap poles are made of aluminum that fails if it bends, nice poles are made of bendy aluminum, or sometimes carbon fibre. and they come with nicer grips which means alot for some ppl.
it seems like this stage of life for a lot of people around our age is like when you are playing a video game and you beat the Final Boss, only to find out that it was just a decoy Final Boss and the real Final Boss is ten times stronger. and you used all of your life and special powers on the decoy.
