Your closest stand of bamboo. Cut one of your preference, hang from a tree for about 2 weeks to dry good and straight. Then cover with urithane.

A lot of people been frogging a lot longer than me, but my personal opinion is to only use a Fiberglas or bamboo pole in the case it meets the prop.

thanks, that looks exactly like what i have been using. it has caught thousands of frogs.

i'm gonna order 2 of them tomorrow.

i have one on a bream pole i am using now. it works fine but is not exactly what i am looking for in a gig pole.

10-4. Just make sure u ask if they have them in stock!!! Ordered 3 kits and only 2 came. Next shipment was 3 weeks out had to cancel the 3rd and buy local for alot more $$. But it all worked out in the end.

I've had good results repairing them by just simply taking the gig off and feeding it through the bottom end and epoxing at the splice. Might be a few inches shorter but it works.

i ordered 2 frog gig kits from mudhole. the poles came in but hadn't recieved the gigs or the rubber butt cap for the poles yet.

my old pole that was broke i fixed by slipping in a section of a fiberglass bream pole and used two small screws to hold it in place. it looks like it will work long enough to get me by untill i get the rest of my stuff in the mail.

i have a backup gig that has one of those old timer gigs on a alum extension pole. only problem is that i put it somewhere in my shed it think and i can't find it. lol.

Some guys use the poles in them flags they stick on the side of the road at like car lots and sales and such, the ones tall and skinny like some guys I know. Not sure if they work best or they just get them for free :)
