I have a Walrus Micro Swift tent. It is a great tent -- I have used it many times, and I hope to use it many more. Unfortunately, I lost the tent poles on a recent outing. Walrus is out of business, so I can't get replacements from them, so I plan to order some custom-made poles from tentpoletechnologies.com. I just need to figure out the right size. Does anyone on this forum own a Micro Swift? And if so, would you be willing to measure your tent poles for me?
You would think the measurements would be on file somewhere, but I called Cascade Designs (which owns what's left of Walrus) and they told me they don't have a record of the tent specifications.
Front pole 78" (198cm), 8.5mm diameter Yunan ,7 sections Rear pole 51" (129.5cm), 8.5mm diameter Yunan, 5 sections
The thickness is not important. Any pole around 8mm and up will do . The sleeves will accommodate a thicker pole. The difficult part is that the front pole was made with pre bent sections and as far as I know you cannot buy those .however Easton do have pre-bent .344" (8.74mm) that may do the job.
(the stored size was 16" so I assume that the max length of those sections was 15" plus tips minus the bend.) Franco
