What's the Difference Between Carbon Fiber and Hybrid Poles?

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.

  1. 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.
  2. Weight. Carbon fiber poles weigh less than hybrid poles.
  3. Maneuverability. Carbon fiber poles are easier to move when extended, which means it's easier to clean with and less straining on your body.
  4. Price. Hybrid poles are less expensive.
