Search E-Bay.

They show up fairly often.

Most people don't realize there are at least 3 different O.D. diameters of these poles, different bases and lengths. The generic Jetson pole description just wont get what many will need. Al has them at California Classics but they are pricey. I watched for the correct one on Ebay for mine for 7 years before I found one close to what the needed. In that time I only saw 3 poles which came up close to my original specs. I had put in key search terms and looked at every one that popped up. All three poles went for $400 bucks plus. Just thought I would let you know it's not always that easy to find the correct one.

I've been trying to get the tops made for years. Have many thousands in a box of useless tops so far. $400 sounds cheap right now.

I have been watching ebay as you have, and most OD's of the Jetson stern pole are of the larger size. Mine being 11/16", makes it more uncommon. i have entertained buying one like the one now on ebay; keep the top and reduce the OD to 11/16". thanks for your reply.

And there are at least three style tops, because I have three different ones as I also considered just building my own correct pole. :roll:
