DIY Fiberglass Push Poles


Everything for your Push Pole Kit in one place! We specialize in fiberglass tube and rod. We have received MANY orders for this exact material from us to make their own push poles at a tenth the cost of one of the premade versions. While we do not make water tight tubing for push pole making we have had customers inform us on how they did it and what they used. See that information in the descriptions of this product below. We have put the Fiberglass, Ferrules, Spikes, Feet, Couplers, and Holding Clips needed to make your own push pole all in one place for your convenience. Storage / Holding clips are sold separately and are not included in these kits.

NOTE: We have tried repeatedly to make totally water-tight tubing for push pole use, but we are convinced at this point that it cannot be done with the Pultrusion manufacturing process. There will always be the possibility of “pin-holes”, or very small pathways that exist all the way through the resin and glass fibers that will allow water (especially water under pressure, several feet down when being used in pushing boats) to find a way through and slowly “seep” inside.

Many of our customers have told us “no problem. I can waterproof it myself!” and have purchased our strong 1.5inch OD X 1/8″ wall tubes with the foot, spike, and clips, and with a little work have used it very successfully! Customers have told us many waterproofing methods they have used, such as coating the insides of the tubes with liquid polyurethane and painting the outside with epoxy paints, and many have used a product called POR-15. Here is a link to technical information on this product: POR15 Bed Liner Coating (We do not sell it, and we pass this along for informational purposes only for “the do-it-yourselfer” who wants to save some big bucks with a little work.) Customers report that this stuff is almost bullet-proof and adheres well to our tubes, though we have not tried it ourselves. Others have used bondo and rolled the tubes to meticulously find any pin holes and fill them. It is also handy that bondo dries gray if you choose the Gray tube option.
