To Timo's question regarding the weight difference for Carbon versus Aloy poles, I could not find anywhere the actual weight of the carbon pole.
If someone can provide this data that's would be great.

The Aloy pole is 0.8 / 0.9 kg each

Should the carbon pole be lighter, the overall difference is really small.

If interested I have a few pics of the setting - let me know and I will send them over.

I'm wondering what is the actual alu/carbon weight difference of commercially available poles? Like Selden's bare pole offerings? As you might have guessed, I'm in the process of converting from single to double and would of course like to save some euros... 

With regards,

As Jean-Baptiste says, the spin poles are very light.  An aluminum pole I have from Selden weighs 1050 g, and a carbon fibre pole I have from Waterat weighs 700 g.  With two poles on the boat, the carbon fibre ones are  0.7 kg (1.5 lb) lighter than the aluminum ones.
