Pole

Yep, carbon fiber is pretty strong stuff.  Yep, we snapped that badboy in half carrying the chute through a large wake at good speed.  It doesn't kill your chances at winning races, but having a 2 foot pole on the bow isn't exactly the fastest configuration.  So if you snap it, you're probably gonna want a replacement.  And that means knowing how big it was to begin with...

So after contacting the appropriate folks, we had an aluminum spindle made to cast ourselves a brand-spankin new pole on. 
(I mean, we had them cast it for us)  Here's a shot of the old pole and why it don't work no more.
