Modern pigeon shooting gear is all about lightness, which means, inevitably, it will not always be particularly strong.

I have a set of poles that were made by the local blacksmith, and are virtually indestructible, but which weigh a ton.

Fine if you don?t have to carry them far, but a real pain if you do.

I know of no commercial company that makes heavy-duty poles, mainly because they would be prohibitively expensive, and most pigeon shooting gear is cheap these days!
