Why buy stuff made in Taiwan when you have great local businesses like this one in Canada with competitive products that are really well made. I first saw these sailboat Man Overboard Poles at the Toronto International Boat Show. Bought one for my boat. Very happy with it.
Web site could use some e-commerce but they reply to emails quickly and ship in Canada and mainland USA.
Easy to navigate, lots of information about Whisker Poles in general and how to use them, technical details about their pole, and very responsive when you email them. I bought one of these poles and love it.
1st order of $30 was great. 2nd order of around $200 was partially wrong. They sent the right number of parts but a handfull were not what I ordered. After 3 months of weekly phone calls and emails (all friendly), they finally replied and made it right. If you like to gamble and are willing to spend a LOT of time if they mess up, then you can enjoy some great prices.
