    If you're wondering if someone picked it up to sell it online, the link above, the guy's from Jacksonville, nice guy, bought a trolling motor from him, I doubt that it is your push pole but you could ask him plainly.

    I'll keep my ears open if I hear anybody selling one in our area, that sucks, but on a positive note, check out the NEW Carbon Marine Loop push poles, you might like it better than a Stiffy Hybrid.

    I appreciate the info I know it's not mine I just lost it yesterday just figured I would put the word out in case someone sees a stiffy hybrid floating past them in the middle of the lagoon. I was thinking about the carbon marine but I have never used one and I hear they are a 3 piece.

    Don't knock it until you try it. I own the Carbon Marine pole and have also used a Stiffy Hybrid; despite one being single piece and the other being multi-piece, I think the Carbon Marine is at least equal to the Hybrid. Plus, it does not try to float while you are planting it on the bottom.

    Patrick, Joe at Carbon marine just came out with a pole specifically designed to compete with the stiffy hybrid and the graphite version (light)... it's ribbed (not for pleasure but grip :-)) and it's got grain opposing each other from either end which is unique in push poles, they float, are very light and he's got a unique foot design that pulls easily out of muck, less drag when trying to chase fish down and plants properly on sand without having to turn on its side... they are about 4-500 bucks cheaper than a stiffy too.

    I have a cm pole now, the basic version and am getting the new Loop model since it's just as light, very stiff compared to mine and ribbed plus they are quality stuff, don't worry about 1 piece, you can't tell it's multi-sectional.

    EDIT: it has a warranty too, I think lifetime, but Joe can explain it to you, can't beat that with a stick (pun intended).

    The new Loop looks pretty nice if you pole often. A nearly 4' longer length is lighter than the Mangrove I have, LOL.
