Dumb handle-pole questions
It is pretty much drydock time for me but I had a long season this year.
I have a spare handlepole for my FX-1, I want to shorten it. From which end do you shorten? Another question is: how much weight diff is there between an aluminum pole and and stock? Interested in all three of the decent models, FX-1, Superjet and SXI, if anybody knows.

John, I shortened mine on the bottom, mainly because it was already loose there. The top section generally doesn't loosen up.
I used J-B Weld for glue and 3/16" aluminum rivets and it hasn't loosened up yet, did it the beginning of May and it's held up all season. I did buy some 1/4 stainless rivets though, very hard to find, and you need a large air-powered puller to use them. Those are my backups.
As far as I can remember, the weight between a SXi stock and aluminium handpole is pretty much the same, however the alu counterpart is a lot more durable/strong.
I am doing a conversion on my Kawi now to a SJ handpole.
