I went camping during a Noreastern on a surf trip, the Noreastern brought 60mph offshore winds and bent most of the tent poles to my tent. I don't want to get some crappy tent poles from wal-dart. Any good suggestions...on where to get some new ones.

thanks,

Are you talking a bckpacking-type tent or a larger family tent with fat aluminum poles? I believe that REI, if you have one near, can make new backpack type poles if you have one to show them. As far as the large tent type poles, no idea. Perhaps contact the manf.?
hope that helps.

Yeah, REI usually has nice Easton aluminum pieces you should be able to craft something out of. Nice quality and not too expensive.

If you need the older, larger metal poles, my local Army surplus store has a crapload of them. Super cheap and easy to customize.
