What's the Difference between Carbon Fiber and Hybrid Water Fed Poles?
There are four important differences between a Hybrid and a Carbon Fiber water fed pole.
- Flex. As you'll see in the video, the hybrid pole is much less rigid (or "floppier") than the carbon fiber pole. The less rigid a pole is, the more difficult they are to handle and the more cumbersome to use.
- Weight. Carbon fiber poles weigh less than hybrid poles.
- Maneuverability. Carbon fiber poles are easier to move when extended, which means it's easier to clean with and less straining on your body.
- Price. Hybrid poles are less expensive.
