Snapped the spin pole today, right at the rivet... My crew told me not to stand on it, but what does she know!!! Anyway, now I need a new one so if anyone has one lying around, and I hasn't already been stepped on, I'll take it.
Shoot me a reply and I'll email you back.

You may be able to sleave the pole. The new poles are 2 piece. If you can get a sleave inside then just push back together and rivet in place.

I repaired my friends carbon fiber pole...I had an old windsurfer mast, so I cut a 1' piece that fit inside his pole then reglassed with epoxy. I agree with Rich...insert a support piece and rivet. BTY Rich I finally got a like new smoke Tiger main #2598 from John Bauldry sailed in 5 events and brand new smoke jib...;0)
