Default Are outrigger poles interchangeable among brands?

I'm awaiting an ordered boat that will come with Rupp outriggers. However, I like the telescoping poles offered by some companies (especially Tigress). I don't think Rupp offers a telescoping option. The telescoping option would be convenient since I have inside dry-storage. Will each brand accept only their own poles, or are some interchangeable?

Thanks

What you need to know is the OD of the poles where they slide into the mounts. Typical sizes are 1 1/8" and 1 1/2" but lee makes some 1 1/4 (I think it is lee) Anyway, most poles will fit in other manf mounts, save the mounting method. Some slip in and click, some have a pin. You may have to do a little fabricating, but most work withut a hitch.

The plastic bushing at the base of the outrigger will be a custom size for your holder eventhough the outrigger pole will be the standard diameter (1 1/8" 1 1/4" 1 1/2").
You will have to special order the telescoping riggers for the Rupp holder. I just ordered 18' telescoping Taco riggers for Rupp Top Guns from Boaters World and recieved them in about 10 days.
