Granger sells fiberglass poles. But my understanding is that it is critical on crossbooms so you don't distort the pattern. I am not sure it is needed for the mast. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

In reading the descriptions of various directional antenna installations, I often see a statement that the last section of mast between the rotator and antenna is non-metallic (most often fiberglass, I believe).
What is the best source for a suitable length of fiberglass pole of the correct size?
I would not be surprised if the source is outside of the radio world... perhaps a round fiberglass pole intended for as a tool handle, for example. Just a guess.
Appreciate any suggestions.
