OC what type of aluminum are your brackets made of? I finally opened my kit to put the poles on and they need to be re-bent to get the holes aligned and the arch out of the bottom.

Aluminum Flat Sheet 5052 H32. You can send them back and I will replace them. The curve at the bottom does not affect the attaching or function.

Don't have time to send back, need them tomorrow. I'll set up some die blocks and see if I can't tweak them around or I'll weld up a hole and re-drill.

The 2 sets of alum poles I have for sale extend to 10'-6 (126") with alum pads tig welded on the bottom for anyone in the Charlotte area.

$170 out the door with veterans, police and fire fighters getting the 15% discount.

They will even fit Berks if 10' length is needed. For an extra $50, I'll even polish them.

Looks like the George Town and Berks need to be around 10' 4" or more.

I think the 10'-6" is greater than 10'4" and I can probably get another 2"-3" without problems. Just drill a few more holes.
