Tips for buying tent pole products：aluminum vs fiberglass tent pole
The main materials for tent poles are aluminum alloy and glass fiber. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each of these two materials? How to choose a product that is more suitable for oneself when facing numerous tent pole products? Here are some tips for choosing these two different kinds of tent poles. It may be useful for you.
Lightweight: lightweight is an important advantage of outdoor travel equipment. Aluminum poles are lighter than fiberglass poles and are more likely to be used for backpacking tents.
Strength and durability: compared to aluminum, fiberglass is not particularly sturdy and is generally used in 2-season tents (i.e. summer and sunny days) or some 3-season tents (sunny days or standard rain and wind). Aluminum tent poles are commonly used for tents in the four and five seasons.
Bending, crushing and repair: if too much force is applied to the aluminum rod, it will bend. But glass fibers can break or crack. Repairing a bent pole is definitely easier than repairing a broken pole.
Price: the production cost of fiberglass poles is lower than that of aluminum poles or other tent pole materials. Therefore, most leisure camping tents that focus on low-cost materials use fiberglass tent poles.
Corrosion resistance: aluminum is a metal, and corrosion and rusting can become a problem. Although there is a protective coating, there will still be corrosion over time. In contrast, fiberglass does not corrode or rust.
