Does anyone know of a pole that will go shorter than a 99b but still extend 7 feet(ish)? Thanks.
I am looking for a pole that collapses down to 20" but will extend to 96".

Half PoleCode: KPHMax. Height: 3' (91 cm)Folded Length: 18" (46 cm)Min. Tube Diameter / Max. Tube Diameter: 7/8" (2.2 cm) / 1 1/8" (2.9 cm)Weight: 1.1 lbs (.5 kg)Legs/Number of Risers: 2 Risers (3 sections).
I'm in the market for a 99b. Anyone know if there is a cheaper place than one of the usuals (B&H, etc) to pick one up?

That's where I got mine.I will say that after using it, I think the full asking price is reasonable for the quality you get.

I've been thinking about this for a while...the marriage of a Lowel half pole and UN-55 stand to create a 8ft pole that collapses down to a small pole. BH had a demo UN-55 on sale so I took a chance...Basically remove the top section of the Half pole and the second section of the UN-55...and marry them. Nice small footprint.I have to say...I'm very impressed with the UN-55 stand. It would do just about everything I want with one set of actives...maybe even two sets. It is a good foot taller than my Manfrotto 501b and much steadier...albeit noticeably heavier.
B&H has them in stock...https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/32183-REG/Lowel_KP_Full_Pole_3_5.html

I think Taper Chris JUST needs parts F & G, which tighten down onto the poles! I could've sworn we chatted about that awhile back and he bought my old/incomplete Full Pole. But I honestly can't remember right now because I've sold so much gear here on ts.com lol! I forget where I was going to buy JUST parts F+G at awhile back or I'd give you the links, because they always had them in stock!That said, I love my 099B and basically any/every Manfrotto product I've owned over the years! They're always top notch quality and built to last, even though they're usually slightly more expensive than their competitors Worth the extra $$ IMO!
