Hi there, up to now I've only lurked on this wonderful forum and have found that any questions I might have had were usually answered by previous threads; I'm stumped on this one though, & that's why I'm making my first board. Yay ^__^
Our old, wooden cavaletti have become unusable, so we've been looking around for something to replace them. The wooden ones were quite heavy and we wanted something that didn't need as much maintenance (paint jobs etc) so we've looked into plastic - and - aluminium cavaletti.
I hadn't heard of alumium jumps or cavaletti before (not much of a jumper, maybe that's why) and I haven't found much on the internet about them in form of feedback or list of advantages, etc.
Not just the stand of the cavaletti, but also the poles would be made of alumium. They would be lighter than wood but heavier than plastic, & wouldn't splinter.
On a german forum, a guy said that they might bend or get squished (as they're hollow). They're not the cheapest alternative, but atm that's not what we're looking at.
What do you guys think? Do you have any experience with alu poles?
