Default wtb taco outrigger pole

I am looking for a single 15 ft silver on silver 1.5 inch taco telescopic pole. I would also be interested in a single premium rigging kit.
I lost a pole last weekend and my bases and poles are only 3 months old. Taco told me I am out of luck with warranty. Last time I buy anything from them.
Thanks,
Matt

Taco's warranty was completely horrible for me as well. I will never buy another set of their outriggers. Good luck on finding just one, I ended up having to buy one single from them so mine would match.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you lose the pole? Did the Taco pole fail? I just installed a pair on my boat.
Thanks (&sorry you lost the pole)

The hinge pin released and the pole slid out of the base. Taco said they have never heard of this but I made 2 offshore trips with them and multiple bay trips since installing and never removed the poles since first installing 3 months ago. The poles were in the lay down position and retracted when it flew off. Next time I will bungee cord them to the rocket launcher so this can't happen again.
