But have you heard of Kevlar?
As far as Kevlar goes, Simpole has been using it for a while now, and the Excaliber has been using it for 7 years!
The Excaliber shorty is a 20’ pole that is a green Kevlar with a hi-mod core. This gives you a light pole that is also crazy stiff. Plus this pole works with any of the current SimPole poles. So adding height is easy.
The finish is a BAKED-ON epoxy, not just a clear coat, which raises the durability even more.
I got my hands on the Excaliber shorty 6, and this thing is SEXY. I mean that in the most professional way possible.
A few of the cool little touches is the red overlay section is actually a red kevlar, not paint. There are also rubber o-rings nested up at the bottom of the clamps. So when the pole is closed, the clamps rest on rubber. Each base section also has a thick rubber pad to protect against concrete damage and they really seem to do the trick. And I love the pole tip itself. It is a machined metal, so no more broken tips out in the field.
Each section of the Simpole Excaliber comes off so you can drop weight as you go.
And I can’t forget to mention the color! This is AWESOME. It’s like a chameleon green! SimPole has always been known for its fit and finish, but this is an awesome-looking pole!
This 20’ comes in at $499 right now, and that is a complete pole.
This is a super stiff pole! I love the mix of Kevlar and Carbon fiber!
