I have a set of the fiberglass swaged tubes from E-pay. I can get a
set of five tubes up in the air, provided I don't have too much weight at
the top and I guy it immediately. They aren't strong enough to support
their own weight at 68+ feet. The outer part of the sleeve will split given
enough bending on the way up. Try something else.
