The one I bought had a small bend in it so it couldnít be used as a spinnaker pole anymore. The bend was near one end so they sold it to me for a really low price, donít recall how much but it wasnít much. I cut the end off with the bend and had a spreader welded on it and a couple of brackets to bolt it onto the boat. I bought it at Minneyís in Costa Mesa, CA but there should be places near you that have used marine equipment. Good luck.
If you are one there is no explanation necessary.
