Ok so I have a home made pole on my VLX... works great but its starting to bend... Do any of you guys know of a company that actually makes them or is everyone doing home made?

Thank you
Trav

Maybe you need to start bringing smaller girls out if the pole is starting to bend. Goes to show extra ballast isn't always worth it.
Ha ha.... totally kidding of course.

I am not sure what you mean by bending. Can you show some pictures of the pole in use and maybe we can make some better suggestions????

heavier gauge pole or smaller girls are your only options.

I'll have to check what brand of pole I have at my place. Do you guys have just the standard pole or optional spinning? Prob a standard pole right? The one I have is pretty legit, tend to somehow have my buddies get up on it & show up the ladies. Sucks bc then the ladies feel intimidated lol

Hahahah.... the girls are thin......their boobs on the other hand.......not so much!
The pole now is actually super thin....I am able to get a 1/4" 10' poll that I can polish out... That should work right?
and as far as the bending... where it goes into the Ski pylon holder it is starting to get a slight kink.........last thing I need is a hoe fallin off the boat drunk hahahah.

Brian don't forget the mistletoe.

UNV I'm sure that he meant 1/4" wall tubing which should be plenty.

How about some sort of zip line between poles. Imagine the possibilities.

There are just to many comments that one could make about this statement Has to be one of the 10 funniest lines I have ever read on WW and I dont even think it was on purpose.

Travis, yes the pole was polished by hand. I think they slung it up and used a drill to constantly turn it.
