    Exclamation Poles anyone?

    Hi, I was just wondering what ever one uses for pole bending at home. I don't really have the money to go out and buy professional ones. Just looking for some good ides. And the construction poles aren't really an option lol.. I ride right by the road. :)

    I'm pretty sure the ones at my barn are just PVC pipes in bases so that they stand up.

    I think PVC pipe is going to be your best option. As for the the base, I'd have no idea what to use

    We used to use paint buckets because they don't tip so easy.

    Buying a set of pole bases really isn't all that expensive. Here's a review of several: Pole Bending Bases
