Cabela's Expedition Replacement Pole Line Reviews:
Bend don't break
Whenever one does internet ordering one takes a chance that you can get the wrong item. I did. I needed the XPG ultralight but instead received the expedition. The length between the Expedition and ultralight was 4". shorter. First I took it as "stupid" on my part for not double checking the order before purchasing it. When I received the item I realized my mistake and decided to try it out using one expedition and the other ultralight. It worked out fine! My tent "Cabella's" XPG ultralight exceeded my expectations and recommend this item for the true backpacker who wants comfort and dryness. I suggest sealing the thread lines to prevent leaks. Good item..Poles did fine, and i'm please with the service I received. Mahalo nui Loa - Kauai Hawaii.
I snapped one of the poles in my 6-man tent. It was my fault, not the pole. The weather was very cold and the pole got snagged as I was pushing it through. I kept pushing without realizing that the pole was bending instead of passing through and...snap. These replacements are excellent quality. They are as good or better than the originals, and I keep a spare with the tent.
WE NEEDED THIS POLE FAST, AS WE WERE TAKING THE TENT HUNTING IN 2 WEEKS. THE DELIVERY WAS AMAZING, WE HAD IT IN PLENTY OF TIME. WE LOVE OUR TENT AND ARE THANKFUL WE COULD HAVE THE POLES REPLACED SO QUICKLY!
