Mist net poles

I've been doing some 'gardening' at my sewerage works scrub site and find a number of my time served 12 ft bamboo poles have had it. What are folks using for full sized poles these days? Any suggested sources? thanks Neil

I've had one private reply, for which I'm grateful and gives me encouragement to persevere with bamboo (gloss painted black every few years).

At one of our 'group' sites we actually use 3.6m x 20mm corrugated aluminium poles given to us years ago, they are superb and of course durable.
