Well, I haven't weighed them yet. I don't have an accurate scale at home, and I'm hesitant to bring them to my friend at the local post office, because they look like hobo gear, and people who didn't do crazy things in the pursuit of the outdoors (like hanging out on this forum) might not understand.

As far as height, they're exactly 49 3/4 inches tall. To figure out how long to cut them, I pinched a pencil under my arm pit with the lead facing backward, stood up as straight as I could against the wall and made a mark, measured how high that mark was, and subtracted three inches. I probably wouldn't use poles at all, except that making cane walking sticks is far cheaper than buying tent poles for the tarp shelter I plan to make. Here's hoping they're tall enough for that.
