I don't know what your pole cost,but a good roller makes shipping/unshipping so much easier,and the wider/double rollers distribute the load so much better.
Do yourself a favour,don't skimp,for the sake of another 10 you can get yourself a good one.
I've been using the Dinsmore one for a while now and my only grumble with it is that the legs could do with being another 10inches longer as sometimes, especially on flat ground, they are a bit short (IMHO )
I forgot about the roller[:0].....Have a look at the giant V by Elk tackle.It`s a tripod and has an extendable mid shaft.It stands about 20 inches high until you extend the middle,then it goes to 32 inches approx,then you can extend the legs and it will go up another couple of feet.
Goddamn it that`s a biggun I hear you cry.And it`s only 20.99
tripod are ok but they fall over if you miss place your pole as i've had 1 . Stick to the 4 legs !
Oh and dave carry your missis shoping 4 her and you might get an ex few inchs to dig deeper in that pocket !
