This is now my fourth set of tent poles I’ve purchased and I believe the last now that I have tent pole success.
My first set of tent poles were good, but after a few nights near or on the beach, they began to get stuck and required force to extend or retract. Here is a link to the first set.
My second set was all metal and I purchased from an outdoor store, they looked cheap, the were cheap yet they performed well until I got near the coast. I ended up placing tape on them to that the metal pinch ring wouldn’t slip.
Now I need to check but I also have the Ozark Trail Multi-Purpose Tarp Shelter, 12′ x 12′ with Steel Poles from Walmart, I need to take pictures of them and remember why I bought them…
Here they are folks, my pick for best tent poles!
