I just checked online. S&T website still lists spruce setting poles. I bought their larger diameter pole at S&T (but I wouldn't recommend it - too large around for a comfortable grip). I think the smaller diameter would be better. I recall a really good price at The Peavey Co. But I don't think Peavey sold (then or now) a setting pole per-se. Looking at their website, I think what I bought was an ash pole (with no fittings) that they call a one-piece pruning pole (U$15.); and put a metal band on myself to reduce splitting. David W.
