SWIX STAR JR PERFORMANCE ALUMINIUM POLE

Aluminum shafts
When the percentage of glass fiber in a composite shaft reaches the 60% level, then the weight is so high that aluminum becomes a better alternative. Aluminum is stiffer, lighter and more durable compared to composite poles with a high share of glass fiber. Recommended alternatives are AluLite, AluStar and AluTeam, which feature hardened aluminum shafts. Although these shafts are much more reasonably priced, the added weight is a disadvantage in terms of pendulum properties.
