Redundant SLE Rods

Sailor uses them as high tech tomato plant frame, but anyone got any other ideas.
I was thinking of bring my model yacht into the high tech era and giving it a carbon fibre racing mast.

I was thinking of making mine into a banner pole(s).
Mmm The thought of CP with the rods is interesting. I wonder how they could be used. Enough of that - what about a jousting lance? Flexble, lightweight but ultra strong .

I have to say I'm not in any great hurry to right mine off. When it's really howling mine still come out of the bag to play, not not often granted but they still have a home in my kite bag and I would be gutted if I lost them.
I like my SLE rods; they make the kite look really neat when it axels. It will usually spin two-and-a-half times with a single pop and rotates all nice and smooth and flat around its center axis. I've also found that the kite can handle a surprisingly wide wind range with an SLE; I was flying just fine with minimal pumping and movement in a 2-4mph breeze last Wednesday.
Not saying I won't all but ditch the SLE in anything but gales when I get some race rods, since that seems to automatically happen to everyone. But I can't imagine the axels will look as purty with the floppier sticks.

I'm using three end rods and two center rods and its the perfect length for a 10 foot banner. Oh, and I use a skyshark p300 as a spike into the sand.
