We carried out a test to dispel the myth that the fiberglass poles used in our winter tents are inferior to the aluminum alloy В95Т1.
It's obvious that the amount of pressure we have applied is excessive for normal fishing conditions where alloy В95Т1 will probably suffice, but we think we have given you a very graphic example of the safety margin of the fiberglass and busted the myth of its fragility.
IMPORTANT! Some manufacturers use regular fiberglass poles for the frame which leads to the damage of the tent. We use full-bodied fiberglass poles instead.
